Air Experiences

Gliding
  • Padstow Squadron offers flight experience to Cadets yearly. This could be through a visit to the Australian Air League Air Activities Centre at Camden for Air Experience flights. We also look to vary Cadet member’s experience of flight by visits to Gliding clubs for gliding flight, or flights in historic aircraft, such as the Tiger Moth.

Development goals

  • The Air Activity Centre offers members the opportunity to gain their Pilots License up to Commercial standard at competitive rates of aircraft hire. Yearly the Australian Air League cadets can apply in a competitive process to gain a flying scholarship. There are also Air Activity Badge weekends where Cadets can gain flying experience to enhance and apply knowledge gained through the Padstow Squadron aviation badge program.
