Members of 332 ‘City of Wagga Wagga’ Squadron, Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC) recently had the opportunity to go for a flight in a C-130 J Royal Australian Air Force Hercules from RAAF Richmond in Sydney. The flight was specifically conducted to allow the members of the cadet unit to experience a flight in a service aircraft and opportunities to speak with the Defence personnel manning the flight.
Cadets furthermore had an opportunity a few weeks later at Bathurst to experience their first hour in control of a glider or light aircraft, depending on individual preference. Commanding Officer, WOFF(AAFC) Michael Barr said “it is very important that these young people get an opportunity to experience aviation as this is one of the goals of the organisation”.
The AAFC recruiting is open to boys and girls between 13 and 16.
The next intake for 332SQN will occur in early 2015 and anyone interested in joining should contact the Commanding Officer 332SQN on 0413 647 558.
