Kate, who wore red for Valentine's Day, also participated in a team building exercise which included jumping.
"She was extremely good. She was a natural," flight instructor Lt. Michael Salter remarked of Kate. "She was very gentle on the controls. Very often people are too rough. If you feel it, it's extremely sensitive."
Salter continued, "She said she hasn't flown before and wanted to understand what the feeling was like in the air."
Kate brought her son, Prince George, 3, to the Royal International Air Tattoo in RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire, last July when she last visited the cadets. The show bills itself online as "the world's greatest air show."
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake an official two-day visit to Paris on 17th and 18th March," Kensington Palace said in a statement. "Their Royal Highness' visit is at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Full details of the visit will be announced in due course."
Both William, 34, and Harry, 32, are making arrangements to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. Earlier this month, Kensington Palace announced a statue has been commissioned of Diana. Several exhibitions to honor the "People's Princess," including a white sunken blooming garden at Kensington Palace and a fashion exhibition chronicling Diana's iconic style, are also being planned.
William’s and Kate's Paris visit will also include a reception with young French leaders, a dinner with the British ambassador to France and a less formal outing to a Wales vs. France rugby match.
William stood in solidarity with the French in November 2015 by attending a soccer match between England and France at Wembley Stadium in London shortly after the Paris terror attacks.
