  1. Hi there, In my time in the ATC I only got to fly this bird a couple of times (i was the first cadet in my wing to fly it at all). I flew often and went solo in the (Grob 103 Twin Acro II) Viking TX.1 with 645 VGS (of which a lot of the instructors are my mates) at RAF Catterick in North Yorkshire which when handed over to the Army (now called Marne Barracks) meant the school had to relocate.
