On Friday, March 20th, 2015 six cadets from the London Bridge Composite Squadron and one from Glendale’s Composite Squadron participated in the F-16 Simulators on Luke Air Force Base. The cadets were sat in a briefing room and were familiarized with the controls, HUD view, and the various modes of the aircraft.
After the briefing and the all clear was given cadets were taken into different rooms of the simulation building and they strapped up slid into the 360 degree simulation dome and flew around with unlimited ammo trying to shoot each other down.
“The experience was really cool”, said C/SSgt. Avery Andreasen “ the hardest part for me was to get the Mig-29 off my tail.” Even the senior member that drove the cadets to the base got to participate in the simulators. All of the cadets and senior members left the simulators with a smile on their face and hope to come back again sometime in their CAP careers.
