The Air Venture Introductory Flight Training Program gives Venturer Scouts the opportunity to 'dip their toes in the water' by completing their first five hours of dual flying training.

It is designed to introduce Venturer Scouts to the exhilarating world of aviation, with a maximum of three Venturers taking part in the flight training on any given day. In addition to the practical component, Venturers receive a full briefing and debriefing before and after each flight, receiving feedback, advice and sign off on their formal training record.

While the Air Venture was previously an overnight camp, due to COVID-19 restrictions, it has been reworked to run over three days on a day-only basis. This new day-only format provides some flexibility, with days no longer needing to be consecutive but instead can be spaced a day apart or a week apart.

The next Air Venture is scheduled to take place in the January 2021 school holidays - from 4 January onwards. For those completing their HSC, there is also the option of a pre-Christmas camp!

Rovers, Leaders and Adult Helpers with a yearning to learn to fly can do just that with Scouts Australia NSW Air Activity Centre's Adult Introductory Flight Training Program.

This three-day day-only program is structured to introduce you to the exhilarating world of aviation by delivering the first five hours of your flying training, in the pilot’s seat, hands-on and in control of the aircraft (under the watchful eye of your flight instructor).

With a maximum of three students, you and at most two other adult Scout members (your training partners) will attend flight training on any given day. You will be paired with the same training partner(s) for the full three days of the program. This also means that you will progress through the program together, and at the same pace, allowing you to interact and learn from each other as well as from your instructors!

In addition to the airborne component of your training, each flight is thoroughly briefed in a 1-hour group session before each flight. Upon completion of each flight, there is also a one-on-one de-briefing to provide feedback about the previous flight, advice on what to focus on during the next flight and to update and sign off your formal training record.

Is your home missing that real Christmas tree smell? Don't worry, there's only a couple of weeks to go until our Scout Groups begin selling real Christmas trees (a few are accepting pre-orders now!).

With the added impact of COVID-19 this year, there's no better way to support your local Scout Group than to purchase a Christmas tree for your home.

Take a look at the list of Christmas tree sales on our website: www.nsw.scouts.com.au/2020-scouts-christmas-tree-sales/
