Applications for the Saturday, 20 May 2017 Scout Target Badge Day opened on Monday, 20 February 2017 and will close on Sunday, 30 April 2017

To register you will need to click on the "Book Now" logo near the bottom of this page. If you wished to be notified of future Scout Air Activities Target Badge events, click on the "Waitlist" logo also near the bottom of this page.

The Scout Air Activities Target Badge Days are designed to cover the Pioneer, Explorer and Adventurer level Scout Air Activities Target Badge. Participants also have a short flight in a Piper Warrior light aircraft.

This is an opportunity for Scouts to achieve their Scout Air Activities Target Badge without having to come to a flying day as part of their Troop. This activity is specifically designed to be a day for individual Scouts to obtain their Air Activities Target badge requirements. It is not a part of our regular weekend flying day program. Troop Badge Days covering one or two Target Badge Levels can requested as a Flying Day with the bookings co-ordinator. For further information click on the Flying Day page link on the right.

The aim of this course is for each Scout to achieve the Air Activities Target Badge of their choice. This is accomplished by pre-course work for Explorer levels, followed by the course. Due to time constraints, PLEASE NOTE THIS COURSE MAY NOT COVER ALL ASPECTS OF THE ADVENTURER LEVEL AIR ACTIVITIES TARGET BADGE. However, it will provide you the tools and knowledge to complete the Adventurer Level. Where Scouts are unable to complete all requirements of the respective Target Badge, the Scout will need to complete outstanding tasks with their Scout Leader.

Scouts can sign up to the course individually and do not need to have a Scout Leader present, as SAAV leaders will be present throughout the entire course. However, Troop Leaders are welcome to attend with their Scouts if they wish.

As with all SAAV flying days, each Pilot is the holder of a current Commercial Pilots License issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). SAAV operates as a charter operation under stringent CASA guidelines, rules and legislation. Each pilot also is a warranted leader and/or the holder of a Working With Children card.
