The Air Force Values provide the expectations and standards that all Air Force people are expected to display every day. Our values underpin everything we do.

“I expect everyone to demonstrate the Air Force values at all times - at home, at work, and when deployed. We have to hold ourselves and our colleagues to account at all times.
I expect Commanders, Managers and Leaders at all levels to demonstrate these values, and be accountable for taking action to maintaining our high standards of service.
Whether you are a Leading Aircraftman, a Corporal, Australian Public Service, industry or contractor, a Commanding Officer or Force Element Group Commander or the Chief - we are all responsible for demonstrating the highest standards at all times.
Unacceptable behaviour has no place in our Air Force, and it is up to every one of us to demonstrate leadership and do what is right. Everyone has the right to come to work and feel welcome and safe.
Being part of the Royal Australian Air Force is a privilege, and we all have a responsibility to uphold the values and the proud traditions that have been the cornerstone of air power for over 90 years.”
Air Marshal Leo Davies, AO, CSC
