Camps and Events

Camps

Several camps are organised each year. The focus of these camps is mostly on aviation and leadership development. Hervey Bay Squadron will generally hold or contribute to the operation of gliding camps and one or two NCO camps.

The gliding camps typically run over a weekend, and cadets are instructed in the theory of gliding to various levels and get to fly in a glider. The last three years this has been held at and with the professional assistance of the Gympie Gliding Club.

NCO camps are training camps undertaken to position cadets for promotion. Rank, leadership and organisational skills are fostered and assessed and this will form part of the basis in awarding promotion through the ranks.

Events

The Air League participate in many local comunity events. In addition to these, Flying, Drill and Training days are held on week-ends.
