Australian Air League statement regarding the National Redress Scheme – Update

As we stated earlier today, the Australian Air League is committed to child safety and wholeheartedly endorses the intention of the National Redress Scheme.

Every child has the right to feel safe and supported.

Over the last few months, the League has engaged expert external advice and has also been working closely with the National Redress Scheme to develop and refine our policies and processes, including our robust child safety policies, to ensure we appropriately manage potential claims or complaints.

Our intention has always been to prioritise victim survivors in line with the League’s values and commitment to child safety.

Our members are the lifeblood of our organisation and throughout the day, we have received strong feedback from them and our wider community.

As a result, the Australian Air League has signed and submitted the letter of intent to join the National Redress Scheme.

We did not take this decision lightly, however our members have made it clear they believe the best way for the Australian Air League to support victim survivors is through the National Redress Scheme. We thank all of our members for their feedback.

As we have been doing, we will continue to work cooperatively and productively with the scheme as well as ensure we have all the appropriate mechanisms in place to support victim survivors of historical cases and to appropriately manage any claims or complaints.

We remain steadfastly committed to child safety and creating a safe and positive environment for all of our members to thrive.

  • 8-15 years Cpl Lachlan Haack – Camden Squadron
  • 16+ years Warrant Officer Corey Loader – Ballarat Squadron

What age did you join Air League and what inspired you to join?

Lachlan: I was 9 years old and I saw the Australian Air League marching at Anzac Day. My mum contacted the Air League and almost 5 years later I am still loving it.

Corey: I joined the Australian Air League in 2018 when I was 17. A friend who is a pilot suggested might enjoy joining the Air League and I love to fly.

What is your favourite part of your Air League Squadron?

Lachlan: My favourite part of my Squadron would have to be the friendships and camaraderie between us. My best mates are all in the Air League and everyone in the Squadron gets along with one another.

Corey: I honestly love all parts of my squadron especially working on drill and making models as well as the members.

What is the fondest memory of your time in the Air League?

Lachlan: My favourite memory would the Air league Joy flight days that is done at Camden Airfield. One of my other fondest memories is the Flying camp in January, where I had my first flying lesson.

Would you like to take up flying as a career?

Lachlan: In the future I will strive to obtain my pilots licence and would like to become a commercial pilot.  

Corey: Flying as a career at the moment is a challenge as I am autistic, but that doesn’t stop me flying with an instructor beside me. It’s a feeling l can’t describe; I’ve been flying for about 5 years.

How many pets do you have and what are their names?

Lachlan: I have two dogs, one named Luna and the other named Chewy.

Corey: Sadly, I recently lost my dog Genius. I have a miniature horse named Nossi but we call him Nosey as his into everything. I also have 3 pet sheep – Del, Rosie and Lamborghini.
