The Minister for Defence, Mr. Simon Coveney, T.D., today (Thursday 2 April 2015) attended the Commissioning Ceremony of the 31st Air Corps Cadet Class at Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnel.

The 31st Air Corps Cadet Class comprised of 5 Cadets, Mark Doyle, Kevin Fitzgerald, Francis Mohan, James Northover and David Finnegan. Addressing the 5 newly commissioned Air Corps officers, the Minister said
“As pilot officers of the Air Corps each of you has chosen a very challenging and demanding career – but one that is also very fulfilling and rewarding. Foremost amongst these are the comradeship, the challenges and the very high level of job satisfaction that comes from leading and serving others.”

Minister Coveney also paid tribute to the staff of the Military College and the Flying Training School involved in preparing the cadets for officer duty. “They deserve a special mention for the care and dedication, which they have brought to the task of developing and nurturing these young people for their future careers.”
