322 Squadron conducts a single recruit intake each year, in February. Our recruitment for 2022 has now closed. Our next recruit intake will occur in February 2023.
There are three steps to join 322SQN:
1. Submit an expression of interest to attend a Recruit Course, and complete a recruit application
2. Attend our Recruit Course and commence your training
3. Attend our Recruit Kitting Day to be issued with your uniforms
Expression of interest (EOI)
To register your interest for the next Recruit Course, submit an EOI by clicking the "JOIN SQUADRON" button above. Please note, the system is not open to accept EOIs at all times of year and may display an error - you may need to try again closer to the next Recruit Course.
After submitting your EOI, initial checks will be conducted to confirm your eligibility, and availability within our next Recruit Course. Please wait to be invited to submit an application, which may not occur until closer to the next Recruit Course.
Our Recruit Course aims to give you a taste of what we do in the AAFC. It is conducted over a Saturday and Sunday (no overnight stay) and attendance at the full two days is required, to ensure recruits meet the established training objectives. The Recruit Course commences with an information session for prospective recruits and parents/guardians where you will receive all the essential information about the AAFC and 322SQN, and enrolment formalities will be finalised. You will then get to know your new course mates and commence your Recruit Stage training in a variety of subjects including fieldcraft, service knowledge, aerospace skills, and drill and ceremonial.
There is no cost to attend the Recruit Course and if you decide the AAFC is not for you then you are under no obligation to join. If you decide you do wish to join, then you will immediately commence attending Wednesday evening parades to continue your training.
Recruit Kitting Day
Approximately two weeks after the Recruit Course, you will attend a Recruit Kitting Day and be issued with your uniforms, which finalises your enrolment as a cadet in the AAFC!
At this Wing we bring together cadets from different squadrons for training and activities.
