    I found out about ADFA trough an add in the paper for the education award. Because I was interested in this award, I wanted to find out about ADFA, and yeah ever since then I have wanted to go to ADFA. I have recently been told that I am successful and guaranteed entry into ADFA subject to getting the UAI and passing fitness assessments etc. I want to do Civil Engineering there, UAI of 85 and I think I should be able to manage that.

    I am yet to find out about how I went with regards to the education award. Either way, I think getting in is an achievement in itself. Anyway for those of you considering ADFA, it offers a fantastic start in life. Good luck.
    YAY I got the education award

    air cadets is a program run by ADFA which allows high school students to experience flying and what the air force does. My school runs it and the guys go on camp and go to air bases and learn to fly etc

    alot of cadet units rnt run by schools... they're regional units. ie mine is 206acu north sydney and anyone from anywhere can join as long as they're australian citizens, which u probably r.

    check out the different regional ones u can join, from what i hear from my aafc friends it's quite rewarding ie. working towards promos etc. btw they're on annual camp from today!

    im in army cadets not air forcce, but the structure is very similar to ours. ie. bothe aac and aafc nsw cadets are on annual camp in singleton from today for 8 days. that's once a yr in july hols. aac units have one bivouac (2 day camp) per school-term which is always on a weekend. there are also optional events to attend eg. airshows, parades, anzac day, armistice day, some of which may be on during school days. i'm pretty sure aafc also has weekly parades (after school, or w/e's)

    The sooner u start the better. Best done in year 11. the selection process took me 1 and half years. You fone the DFR number and tellem u wanna join up to adfa. they'll take u thru all the steps.

    as an applicant u have to go thru joes day, interview day, and an osb. after ur osb they'll let u know if ur an education winner or not. hope that helped got me edu award 3 weeks ago or so
    If your brain was water, u'd be a walking drought =P
