903ATS coordinates Pilot Experience (P-EX) days for 3WG. These are an opportunity for cadets to undertake introductory training flights in powered aircraft or gliders. P-EX activities are generally funded completely by the Commonwealth or alternatively P-EX days can also be Squadron funded provided that they utilise approved suppliers and the activity is approved by CO 903ATS along with the normal approval process.

Cadets will participate in a pre-flight briefing with qualified flying instructors prior to a thirty-minute flight that enables the cadet to take the controls as part of a structured flying lesson.

To Check when your squadron has been allocated a P-EX day – AVSCHED 28.8.17

Squadron participating in PEX Days must ensure that the following items are presented on the day;

1. TR66 for each cadet participating.

2. Powered and Gliding: All cadets must bring a fully complete AAFC Medical Declaration – no form no fly!

3. The participating SQN must also complete the PEX Flight Sheet during the activity and submit it to CO 903SQN via email  at the completion of the activity or next parade night.

4. The participating SQN must also have a printed copy of the Emergency Response Plan (ERP) for the location on hand before arriving at the airfield and always whilst they are on the airfield. ERPs are available from the safety page on this site.
