Air Force Values

Chief of Air Force

The Chief of Air Force, Air Marshal Geoff Brown AO, has reminded all Air Force members of the importance of their values and behaviours. Air Marshal Brown explained that the Air Force values are the beginning for cultural change, and they need to be translated into daily behaviours in all workplaces. “Commanders, Managers and Leaders at all levels – from our Leading Aircraftmen and Corporals, our Australian Public Service managers, through to our Force Element Group Commanders and myself – have responsibilities to set the highest standards and take appropriate actions when Air Force members fall short of our standards,” Air Marshal Brown said. “I am absolutely committed to shaping Air Force as an organisation of people that have the courage to always do the right thing. Our Air Force is overwhelmingly made up of good people who do the right thing, but those people that display unacceptable values and behaviours are not welcome in our Air Force. “We must all live our values every day, to ensure that our Air Force is one that we can be proud to serve in, at all times,” Air Marshal Brown said.
