Air League Parades through Sydney

The NSW Group of the Australian Air League recently took to the streets of Sydney for the League’s annual Ceremonial Parade, the first major event since the lifting of COVID restrictions which saw most major events in 2020 cancelled.

The parade saw the cadets and Officers march through the city CBD to the Royal Botanic Gardens for the presentation of awards with the Reviewing Officer Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC Governor of New South Wales.

This year was the 84th Annual Ceremonial Parade for the NSW Group and with Squadrons from across NSW in attendance it was great to see the Air League out in the community again.

Junior Cadet competition – May

Last month we had a great response to our Junior Cadet competition with some great entries, so for May we are running another competition open to our Junior Cadets ages 8 to 11.

The Cessna 152 is a very well known two seat trainer aircraft that many pilots learn to fly in. This month we are looking for our Junior Cadets to neatly and correctly label all of the parts of this aircraft. Our aircraft here is also looking pretty plain, so we want you to create the most imaginative scheme for your own aircraft!

You can download the Cessna 152 sheet here.

Once again there are two categories for the competition;

  • 8 – 9 years old
  • 10 – 11 years old

The only condition is you must be a Junior Cadet who current member of the Australian Air League.

Please include your name and membership number on you entry, you can ask mum or dad to post them on the Air League Facebook page, or email them to us competition@airleague.com.au.

The winner of each category will receive a 1/72 scale model aircraft. Entries close on the Sunday, 13th June 2021 at 11:59pm.

April Competition Winners

Thank you to all the cadets who took part in our recent F/A-18 colouring contest – there were some great entries and it made our job really hard to pick the winners!

Finally we narrowed the field down to two winners and they;

  • Ben Spratt (9)
  • Tiger McKie (11)

Tiger captured the colours of the special anniversary F/A-18 Hornet perfectly, while Ben went for something different with an F/A-18 in the colours of the Roulettes aerobatic display team!

Watch in the coming days for details of our next competition!
