Alumnus swoops into school

Flying Office Tobi McCrone

Former pupil (2001-2009) Tobi McCrone returned to school to visit the RAF Section of Exeter School's Combined Cadet Force (CCF) on Friday 28 September.

Flying Officer Tobi talked to the Section about his journey from the school’s RAF Section through university and onto basic training and Officer Training at RAF Cranwell.

Tobi completed his Elementary Flying Training in January and has been posted to help with many of the events for the RAF 100 project to celebrate 100 years of the RAF.

He has now been streamed to Basic Fast Jet Training at RAF Linton-on-Ouse which will start in October and he hopes to earn his “wings” by August 2019.

Contingent Commander and RAF Section Commander Simon Smale said: “Tobi’s story was very encouraging for the cadets and many questions followed which he was happy to answer.”
