The Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC) is recruiting instructors to teach aviation’s next generation.
Earlier this year, the first of AAFC’s new powered aircraft arrived in Australia. The eight Diamond DA40 NG aircraft have been provided by the Royal Australian Air Force to support safer, more advanced training for Cadets. The fleet will be a key part of Cadets’ education from 2019.
This is a huge learning opportunity. These aerodynamically advanced aircraft have contemporary navigation and flight control systems, which will challenge our Cadets to build their skills.
If you’re a pilot who wants to give back to your community, we want to hear from you. Working with Cadets means you’ll be paid to fly. You’ll have the chance to teach young people about the possibilities of an aviation career.
The DA40’s sophisticated avionics technology and turbocharged piston engine will get cadets curious, whether they’re interested in flying or doing maintenance. This modern equipment gives offers a standardised governance framework and safer, more advanced training.
The aircraft will be based at RAAF Amberley in Queensland, RAAF Richmond in New South Wales and RAAF Point Cook in Victoria, and will regularly travel to regional airfields across the country.
We’re always looking for help to get our Cadets in the air. If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact us today: firstname.lastname@example.org.
