Air Force Association (ACT Division)

Patron: AVM Roxley McLennan (Retd) AO

The Air Force Association is a non-profit organisation promoting social activities, welfare, commemoration events, aviation interest and the memory of fallen friends.

Membership is open to serving and former members of the Australian Defence Force and Allied Armed Forces, their family members, current and former Air Force Cadets, Air League Cadets and members of the public who have not served in any air force, but who have an interest in aviation and who support the mission and objectives of the Air Force Association.

Australian War Memorial

Attendances at memorials are to remember and commemorate those who died in the service of their country—they are not symbolic, but of real participation for those who were lost.

Collateral Damage

Collateral damage in air attack is a major concern to Western Governments — but it is of no concern in Russia's air operations in Ukraine.
Maybe the West's Air Power Manuals need updating to reflect 'real' operations.

The China Syndrome

Australia and the US are not jut dealing with a trade partner—we are dealing with a geo-political rival who wants to replace the western life style, democracy and financial prominence; they want to control technology, intellectual property, finance, education and religion.

National Security

The transition away from hydrocarbons is undermining national security: how will the ADF fly aircraft, sail ships or operate missile systems? Assuming Net Zero 2050 goal includes hydrocarbon fuel that these require for propulsion, how then will they be be powered — by solar or wind? Sheer nonsense of course. Nuclear powered submarines may be well established, but what fuel will power these other essential Defence systems? Nothing, unless a major techology genius appears—like Star Wars propulsion systems.
