Regional ASPIRE at ADFA | Aspire
Senior regional students enjoyed a visit to the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) and UNSW Canberra to gain a glimpse of a future combining university life and military training.
A big thank you to FSGT Rogers who co-ordinated the visit, Matt who ran the flight simulator session, Marty and Matt (a different Matt!) who presented and MIDN Reay and OCDT Johnston who gave a firsthand insight into what it was like studying at ADFA.
Students also toured the Australian War Memorial and took part in a some real life physical activity to get a taste of what is required in the Forces. (see separate article!)
The three-day residential event was a great opportunity to see the different degrees available at UNSW Canberra and the opportunities that can open up through the ADFA.
It was agreed that most students needed to do a bit more work on their flying skills.
