Re-formed in August 2010, the Gold Coast Squadron has quickly become acknowledged for its high level of activity, innovation, membership and achievement.
Cadets attend Squadron parade nights once a week, where they take part in a variety of activities which include ceremonial drill and aviation theory classes. Physical training, aircraft modelling and field craft also form part of squadron activities.
External opportunities for air field visits, aviation events, aircraft inspections and flight simulator activity are also sought out to broaden the cadets aviation experiences .
In addition to weekly Squadron parade nights, the cadets also participate in Anzac Day memorial services and community projects such as Clean Up Australia Day.
