Imagery taken of the 'Blue Skies' visit to IX(B) Sqn yesterday the 30th April 2013. Squadron Leader James Gross showed Dr Emma Egging from the Jon Egging Trust (JET), Deputy Head of Downham Market High School Mr Martin Moss and a group of keen students around the Squadron based at RAF Marham in Norfolk. The students got to see Tornado aircraft starting up, taxy and taking off. Sqn Ldr Gross and Flight Lieutenant Ian Snelling explained all about the Tornado aircraft to the students who were certainly very keen in asking questions and learning about life as a pilot.

JET East Anglia

The Jon Egging Trust first started delivering our programmes in East Anglia in 2013. Since then, we have run six Blue Skies programmes working closely with RAF Marham, supporting multiple cohorts of 15 young people through our intensive three-year syllabus: Blue Skies 1: Teamwork, Blue Skies 2: Leadership and Blue Skies 3: Employability

In addition, we are now reaching out to an additional 1,000  students across Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk each year through our Blue Skies Inspire Packages and Inspirational Outreach programmes, with the support of our fantastic partners Inzpire, RAF Marham, RAF Honington and RAF Wittering. With your help we can reach out to even more young people.

Local fundraising is essential. On this site you can find out more about our work in East Anglia and how you can support us.
