305 Squadron Patch
Since its inception in 2000, the 305 Squadron patch has featured a Phoenix rising above 3 waves of red, white and blue. The Phoenix is a mythological bird which lives for 500 years. At the end of its life, the Phoenix is said to engulf into flames, into a pile of ashes, and from the ashes a new Phoenix is born. 305 Squadron chose this to symbolise 305 Squadron being born from the ashes of 5 Flight (AIRTC) in the Year 2000.

Each Squadron in the AAFC has an approved Squadron patch which is worn by all Cadets and Staff Members posted to that unit, on the sleeve of their Flying Dress and Disruptive Pattern Camouflage Uniform. The history of the 305 Squadron Patch is below.

In 2013, 305 Squadron put forward 4 new designs for Squadron Patches to comply with new standards. These patches were approved in February 2013. The Circular patches are worn on the standard ("Old Style") Disruptive Pattern Camouflage Uniform (DPCU) and Flying Dress (FDs) by all Cadets and Staff. The rectangular patches are on the Near Infrared (NIR) DPCUs in replacement of the circle patches. The Colour patches are worn to all activities and parade nights, while the AUSCAM patch is worn on field activities only.

In 2015, following a national standardisation of Squadron Patches, 305 transitioned to its current patch. The patch is similar to its predecessor, with an alteration of background and border colours, and relocation of the "City of Pittwater" test. These patches were first issued in 2016 in rectangular form.
