Air Australia League flies to Ballarat
South Australian Officers and cadets of the Australian Air League (AAL) travelled to Ballarat in October with the assistance of an Alliance F50 charter, to attend the 2016 AAL Federal Review.
The weather was cold and overcast, however this failed to dampen the enthusiasm on the day, with cadets from across the country meeting in Ballarat to participate in Aviation and AAL ceremonial events and activities and games.
This two-yearly event is an important part of the AAL, establishing and fostering a greater understanding of aviation whilst having fun at the same time.
The review also saw Rear Admiral, the Honourable Kevin Scarce AO, CSC, former Governor of South Australia and Patron of the South Australia Wing, and his wife Liz, also fly to Ballarat with the South Australian contingent to take the Review of the parade of the assembled Officers and Cadets.
Thanks to the Alliance crew John, Richard, Amy and Lisa, the flights were by far a highlight for many of the cadets with many mentioning it was the “best part” of the day.
The AAL has three Squadrons in Adelaide at Parafield, Port Adelaide and Gawler. Children aged between 8 and 18 are welcome to join as are adults who are keen to volunteer their time for the cadets. Squadrons meet once a week during school terms and participate in other flying activities during the year.
