Recruits hit their targets
NEW recruits with Coffs Harbour’s Air Force Cadet Squadron have attended their first activity, staring down the barrel of a possible future in the armed forces.
After extensive theory and training in the responsible handling of firearms, the new cadets hit the rifle range.
“It’s important to ensure our new cadets qualified as soon as possible so they can attend a practical shoot,” the squadron’s commander Flying Officer Deborah Hoiles said.
“Extensive theoretical training teaches cadets the responsible handling of firearms and is essential to ensure safety on the range.
“Marksmanship and accuracy are then the next step in cadet training.”
The squadron provides a vast array of activities for its cadets.
In April, Air Force cadets will be doing what they do best when they take the controls of a Cessna 152 for a day of powered flying.
