    It’s time to announce the 100-Coin Squadron Challenge winners!

    To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Australian Air Force Cadets, the Air Force Shop invited the AAFC community to nominate their favourite squadron for their chance to win. The winning squadron who received the most votes from throughout the community will win 100 custom-designed Challenge Coins valued at $3280 for their AAFC squadron.


    Congratulations to the winners of the Challenge Coin Giveaway 704 Squadron! 


    704 Squadron received the highest number of votes from the AAFC community and will be presented with 100 custom designed challenge coins to celebrate their success.

    The winning AAFC Squadron will get to design both faces of the 48 mm medallions, choose a finish, and the Air Force Shop team will handle the rest. These beautifully crafted medallions will be presented to the Commanding Officer of the winning squadron. 

    Our winners were nominated by the AAFC Family including students, family members of students, faculty, alumni, and benefactors. With over 700 entries this was a fantastic effort by the whole community.

    In 2021, the AAFC celebrated its 80th Anniversary.

    Since 1941 the Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC) have been a youth-oriented organisation that is administered and actively supported by the Royal Australian Air Force.

    The AAFC teaches valuable life skills and helps to develop qualities including leadership, self-reliance, confidence, teamwork, and communication. Some activities undertaken by the AAFC include flying, fieldcraft, adventure training, firearms safety training, drill and ceremonial, service knowledge, aeromodelling, navigation, and gliding.

    Their fundamental aim is to foster qualities that will enable cadets to become responsible young adults, who will make a valuable contribution to the community. No matter what career you choose, the AAFC provides a foundation of knowledge and skills that will assist you in your future.

    The Air Force Shop is proud to support the AAFC in celebrating its 80th year with this fantastic challenge.
