215 SQUADRON TO RECEIVE FUNDING UNDER TURNBULL GOVERNMENT

Monday, 6 June 2016

Liberal National Member for Bonner, Ross Vasta today announced a re-elected Turnbull Coalition Government would provide the 215 Squadron Australian Air Force Cadets with $14,000 to help them with the construction of a new trailer.

Speaking at the 215 Squadron AAFC’s weekly evening parade at Citipointe College, Mr Vasta said he was proud to support the project that would benefit a number of local squadrons and units throughout the area.

“The trailer will be made available for use by different squadrons and cadets units throughout the area,” Mr Vasta said.

“I’m thrilled to be able to commit this funding to a worthy local community group such as 215 Squadron for a worthy project that will also benefit the wider community.”

Executive Officer of 215 Squadron AAFC, Tony Shield welcomed the funding.

“Our cadet units will be able to use the enclosed trailer to store and transport field equipment such as tents, radios and first aid into rural and bush settings for field training exercises,” Mr Shield said.

“It will increase our capacity to conduct field training, enabling more participants and elevating our standard of training.”

Mr Vasta commended 215 Squadron for better equipping young people for community life and stimulating an interest in the air force through its training programs.

Only the Turnbull Coalition Team can provide the strong economic leadership needed to deliver for community groups in the Bonner electorate.
