They receive training in areas such as first aid, and take part in ceremonial and marching drills as well as physical training and model aircraft building. "The Toukley squadron also has practice sessions for its band," Brendan said. Cadets take part in weekend activities such as camps, inter-squadron competitions and parades, too. Warnervale Airport is the base for the AAL's flying activities. "All of our cadets have the opportunity to fly in Cessnas, and from the age of 14 they begin to have their first hands-on experience at the controls with an instructor so that they get a bit of a feel for handling an aircraft," Brendan said. At age 16, cadets can begin formal flying lessons with an instructor and work towards earning their pilot's licence. AAL graduates from the Central Coast have gone on to become pilots in the Air Force and for Qantas, Brendan said. Young people considering careers in avionics (aviation electronics) as well as engineering and aircraft maintenance also receive a good grounding in the AAL. Brendan said the organisation also developed leadership and team-work skills, and encouraged cadets to be resourceful. "It's about life skills, in general, and good citizenship," he said. • To find out more about the Central Coast wing of the Australian Air League go to www.aaltoukley.com or phone Brendan Gregory on 0402 380 665.
