Welcome to 311 (City of Gosford) Squadron!
311 Squadron is the premier Australian Defence Force Cadets unit on the Central Coast and is a sub-unit of 3 Wing (NSW & ACT), the largest Australian Air Force Cadets Wing in Australia.
Since its formation in 1982, 311 Squadron has been providing young people on the Central Coast with unparalleled leadership and aviation training opportunities. Our Cadets are able to access these opportunities at both local (Squadron) and State (Wing) level, with activities and camps occurring during weekends and each school holiday period.
Locally, 311 Squadron Cadets are able to participate in gliding and powered aviation experience flights, fieldcraft and survival camps, community and social events, and firearms safety training. Our focus is on providing a high quality Cadet experience within the Australian Air Force Cadets youth development framework, with our activities fostering teamwork, leadership, confidence and initiative.
Our Wing-based camps and courses are where our Cadets get to apply the skills and knowledge gained at Squadron-level, and participate in a range of activities no other youth devlopment organisation within Australia is able to offer. These camps and courses include glider and powered aircraft pilot training courses, camps on RAAF bases, fieldcraft and adventure training camps, band course, aeromodelling/rocketry/drone camps, promotion courses, and international exchanges. Wing camps and courses are held every school holiday period, and our Cadets can truly choose their own adventure.
311 Squadron and the AAFC provides experiences and opportunities which you won’t find anywhere else. You will experience a small taste of what the Air Force is like, and will make friends for life. Take the challenge, and join our team.
At this Wing we bring together cadets from different squadrons for training and activities.
