AMAZING OPPORTUNITY – AVIATION EXPERIENCE FOR ADF CANDIDATES
Year 12 students Summer Donnelly and Piper James attended the Women in Defence event at the RAAF Base, Townsville on Tusday 25 May. The intent of the event was to inspire candidates who have an interest in aircrew and aviation roles, to pursue a career within the Australian Defence Force. Participants were able to explore static aircraft and interact with aircrew, groundcrew, and support staff. The event culminated with all participants getting to go for a flight in a Chinook helicopter around the Townsville region.
