Our Chief Commissioner, Neville Tomkins OAM, JP expressed his delight at attending the Air Activities Day on Sunday 30 April. The day coincided with visiting Groups from 2nd Panamia and Greenwich/Wollstonecraft, who in addition to undertaking flights over the local countryside, also completed a badge course, undertook an informative aerodrome walk, ‘flew’ flight simulators and enjoyed a well-earned BBQ lunch.
The Chief Commissioner enjoyed a short flight with Cubs Zoe and Remy from the Greenwich Wollstonecraft Scout Group, which was piloted by Angela Williams, the Safety Manager for the Air Activity Centre.
“It was terrific to see the excitement on the faces of all the Cubs as they prepared for their flight,” Neville said.
“I congratulate the AAC on contributing such exciting and diverse activities as part of our Scouting program.
“I am most impressed that the Centre takes our aircraft to other parts of the State, offering similar opportunities to youth from the country regions. This is an important initiative which ensures our Movement remains inclusive and accessible to all,” he added.
Following his visit, Neville wrote to all AAC volunteers, congratulating them on their contribution to Scouts NSW and thanking them for giving up their time for the benefit of our youth members.
