  Several of these gliders have been operated by the 3 Wing, AAFC Aviation School's 301 Aviation Training Flight (310AFT) through lease from the Southern Cross Gliding Club Inc.

The Air Force also ordered 11 (eleven) Schleicher ASK 21 Mi motorised gliders for basic training of cadets for delivery from August 2014.

All of these gliders are self launchers and come with trailers.

The aircraft are based at four/five different training centers throughout the country.

Deliveries began in August of 2014 and the contract included shipping, registration, aircraft inspection, delivery and operator training.

The first ASK 21 Mi will left the factory in May 2014 and by the middle of 2015 the entire fleet was fully operational in Australia.

The planned distribution of airframes is:

1 Wing 2
2 Wing 3
