On Saturday 28th January the Victoria Group of the Australian Air League ran and NCO training day for cadets to provide extra training and prepare them for 2023.

Organised by Sqn.Sgt. Violet Lorenz (Doncaster Sqn) and Sqn.Sgt. Christian Camilleri (Niddrie Sqn), the training day saw 20 cadets from across Victoria Group attend on the last day of the school holidays (in 35º heat!) to brush up on their drill.

It wasn’t all marching – the cadets were also visited by FLTLT Justin Kelly of the RAAF who gave a talk on his career highlights since joining the Air Force in 1999. Currently based at MCAS Miramar in California (yes, the former home of the US Navy Fighter Weapons School – Top Gun!), FLTLT Kelly has been involved in the Joint Strike Fighter Operational Test Team (JOTT) for the F-35 and gave an informative talk on his journey from Aircraftman to Flight Lieutenant, issuing prizes to the cadets for correct answers. too!

Leeton-Narrandera Squadron Open Day

On the weekend of the 11th and 12th of February, the NSW Air Activities Centre flew out to the Riverina to support Leeton-Narrandera Squadron.

Their visit coincided with a Squadron open day which Squadron OC Robert Manning described as “Exceeding all expectations”!

The Squadron there is set to soar to new heights with over 20 young people dropping in to learn more about the Air League and while this happening they were busy running scenic joy flights for all in attendance taking in the sights of the Murrumbidgee River and surrounding districts.

All Squadrons in NSW are reminded to get in touch with us (airactivities.nsw@airleague.com.au) to book a flying day either at Camden Airport or for those located further afield at an airport near you!

FunFlight celebrate 15000 flights!

Since 2008 FunFlight has been taking children touched by adversity for the Flight of their Life.

On Saturday 11th February they celebrated 15 years and their 15,000th flight!

For the last 10 years, the Victoria Group of the Australian Air League has been involved, with cadets providing assistance escorting families to their flights and helping the kids board.

To celebrate the milestone, aviation YouTuber and pilot Stefan Drury made a great little video of the day – and great to see the cadets helping on the day featured so prominently!
