Cadets Sophie Radley, Kamilla Lasocka, Matt Wilson, Jacob Troughton and Katie Dickson flew in the RAF’s primary trainer, the Grob 115 Tutor, at RAF Wyton.
They learnt the plane’s controls and got to take over for some basic flight training.
Some cadets were even able to fly over their own houses and experience thrilling aerobatics.
Cadet Katie Dickson, said: “It was so good and I can’t wait to go out again.
