Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Intent to re-start Air Force Cadet Parades

Assessing the impact of COVID19 on all AAFC Operations; and with the safety, health and wellbeing of all members being our core focus; we made the decision to pause all operations from 15 March 2020.

A message from our Commander AAFC, Group Captain(AAFC) Mark Dorward:

CDF has now provided approval to restart ADFC parades. The restart will be subject to COVID return to work strategies about to be released by the National Headquarters.

Further details regarding risk management and approval will also shortly be released via Information Circular (via our email, social media, website). At this stage only home parades and day activities will be approved.

Requirements will still be dependent on and subject to any state-based restrictions which take precedence.

Preparations for the first staff parade should be made to occur no earlier than in the week commencing 27 Jul 20 with cadet parades commencing one week later from Monday 3 Aug 20.

Further information will be provided in the coming week to ensure adequate planning, preparation and training is provided to all involved.

I am sure many of you will be excited to return to cadets and I thank everyone for their patience. Ensuring our steps are considered and graduated so that we are as safe as reasonably practicable will be of the highest importance.

Kind regards

Group Captain (AAFC) Mark Dorward
Commander – Australian Air Force Cadets
