Avalon hosts cadet flight program.

The Australian International Airshow is an important event for the aviation industry and it's impressive to see the AAFC participating with their Diamond DA40 NG aircraft.

Flying a Diamond DA40 NG aircraft is a great achievement, and completing Elementary Flying Training School is a significant milestone for any aspiring pilot. It's also exciting to hear that Cadet SGT Carpenter is considering following in his dad's footsteps and joining the Royal Australian Air Force.

A career in the Royal Australian Air Force. The C-130J Hercules and the F-35A Lightning II are both exciting aircraft to aspire to fly. It's wonderful to see young people like Cadet SGT Carpenter being passionate about aviation and serving their country.

The Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC) provides young Australians with an opportunity to learn about aviation and aerospace through a structured program that includes flying training, theoretical and practical skills in aircraft handling, engineering, and flight operations.

Many cadets who have completed the AAFC program have gone on to have successful careers as aviators in the Australian Defence Force and commercial aviation industry.

The AAFC's focus on leadership and personal development is an important aspect of its training program. Developing these skills can not only help cadets in their future careers but also in their personal lives.

It's great to see that the AAFC is not only providing opportunities for young people to pursue a career in aviation but also helping them grow and develop as individuals.

Exposure to events like the Australian International Airshow can ignite a passion for aviation in young people and inspire them to pursue a career in the industry.

The AAFC's focus on leadership development and practical aviation training can also prepare cadets for the demands of a career in the Australian Defence Force or commercial aviation. Overall, the AAFC plays an important role in fostering the next generation of aviation professionals in Australia.

It seems like the AAFC is investing in their aviation training program and expanding their fleet of aircraft to support their cadets' flying training. It's exciting to see young people getting involved in aviation and being inspired to pursue careers in the industry or the Australian Defence Force.

The DG1000S gliders are used for the AAFC's gliding program, which provides cadets with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of flight and build their skills in aerobatics, navigation and soaring.

The gliders are used in conjunction with winch-launch systems and are towed by powered aircraft to reach the required altitude before releasing for gliding practice.
