Australian Air Force Cadet (AAFC) Flight Training Weekend at Rockhampton Airport

Over this last weekend, the Rockhampton Aero Club (RAC) hosted the Australian Air Force Cadet (AAFC) Flight Training Weekend.

40 Air Force Cadets ranging in ages from 13 to 20 undertook a Trial Instructional Flight of 30 minutes duration.  This was the first year the AAFC have been able to access actual flight activities.

The Weekend was funded by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) as part of its support for the Air Force Cadets.

From the feedback so far from cadets, staff and parents, it was a very successful weekend of training with 40 individual flights conducted using 3 Cessna aircraft and 3 RAC Flight Instructors.

Sincere thanks to RAC Newsletter Editor Paul Tyler for submitting this brief report and photos of a most enjoyable weekend of flying at Rockhampton Airport.
