413 SQN are a community-based Squadron with very strong ties with community, service and youth development groups
We operate out of a Multi User Depot (MUD) at Tel el Eisa Barracks in Warrnambool and parade on Thursday nights during school terms from 18:30 – 21:30.
As an Australian Air Force Cadet you can join us if you are a secondary school student and turning 13 in your year of enrolment. Enrolments are accepted up until age 15 and your Cadet career continues until you turn 18. We conduct recruit intakes during Terms One and Three each year.
The dedicated staff and enthusiastic cadets of 413 Squadron are a true testament to the positive aspects that Australian Air Force Cadets brings to the lives of our youth. To get the most out of the program we encourage our cadets to take every opportunity to attend the activities we have on offer.
These activities include: bivouacs (camping), flights and flying training, the Firearms Training Elective and range shooting, (using .22 calibre rifles at approved ranges), combined recruit training weekends, cadet aviation experiences, pilot experience flights, promotional courses, social activities, Dining In nights, Final Parades and local ANZAC Day, Vietnam Veterans Day and Remembrance Day ceremonial services.
There are also a number of activities held at a Wing (state) level that cadets are able to attend. These include (but are not limited to): GST (General Service Training) and LCDT (Leading Cadet) camps at RAAF bases, promotion courses, Wing competitions, adventuring training camps, Wing bivouacs and the Annual Parade. It is through these activities that cadets experience life on base and explore the various jobs that are performed there; cadets eat in the Airmen’s Mess and get a glimpse of what life in the Defence Force is all about.
There are many other opportunities to gain knowledge, further your cadet career and gain confidence in yourself and your abilities including scholarships available to cadets including but not limited to RAAF sponsored Powered and Gliding scholarships and the RSL Cadet of the Year.
