Welcome to the website of 321 (City of Newcastle) Squadron Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC). Our squadron provides an unrivalled cadet experience in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Hunter region.


The AAFC is the premier aviation and military focused youth organization in Australia, and is administered and actively supported by the Royal Australian Air Force. The squadron is one of over 140 AAFC units throughout Australia.

At 321 Squadron we train and encourage young Australians to become fair and responsible leaders, capable of taking responsibility for their actions, and able to set an example for their peers. The unit plays an important part in the community, often representing our parent service at service and ex-service functions and commemorations. By the time they leave the AAFC, 321 Squadron cadets will have experienced positions of responsibility, and will have learned important life-long lessons about self-discipline and leadership. Yes, it is a challenge, but that is what life is all about!

This website is designed to provide general information about 321 Squadron, and to provide information and resources for current cadets and their families. Additionally, the website also contains information for prospective members of the AAFC, including details of our recruitment process.

You are encouraged to explore the website to discover more about the operation of this exceptional squadron. If you require more information, please contact the Squadron Duty Staff Member by telephoning 0432 132 104.
