    Australian Air league youth group coming to Geelong

    We would like to advise that the Australian Air League youth group is opening a new Squadron in Geelong, and will be holding a meeting at the Geelong Umpire Association Club Rooms at Kardinia Park on Thursday 7th November starting from 6pm. Young boys and girls who wish to learn more are welcome to come along with their parents to discover what the Air League has to offer.

    The Australian Air League is a national organisation for young people aged from 8 to 18 years who have an interest in aviation either as a career or as a hobby. It teaches leadership skills and provides a wide range of interesting and exciting activities such as camping and hiking, sport and physical recreation, building and flying model aircraft and ceremonial drill. Through classes and practical demonstration members learn the theory of aviation and a wide range of associated topics such as Meteorology, Navigation, Aero Engines and Aircraft Construction, as well as general interest subjects such as photography, field craft and community service.

    With Squadrons in most states of Australia, the Air League has been serving the community in Australia since 1934. It is entirely self-funding and is staffed by volunteers who give their time to achieve its goals. To learn more about the Australian Air League visit our website at
