Hawk 127 flypast over Geraldton Foreshore for Cadets Freedom of Entry Parade

Operation Details Tab


On Sunday 30 September the Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC) of 711 Squadron will exercise their Freedom of Entry to the city of Geraldton with a parade on the Geraldton foreshore.

In support of this activity a Hawk 127 Lead-in-Fighter aircraft, based at RAAF Base Pearce, will conduct up to three level flypasts over the parade at approximately 2.25pm, 2.45pm, and 2.56pm.

The aircraft will approach from the north east and depart the south west, flying at speeds up to 740 kilometres per hour and no lower than 150 meters above ground level.

The AAFC is a youth oriented organisation that is administered and actively supported by the Royal Australian Air Force. Some of the activities young people can get involved in as members of the AAFC include flying, field craft, adventure training, firearms safety training, drill and ceremonial, service knowledge, aero modelling, navigation and gliding.

The AAFC’s fundamental aim is to foster qualities that will enable cadets to become responsible young adults, who will make a valuable contribution to the community.

All flying is subject to change due to weather and operational requirements.
