Air Marshal Leo Davies, AO, CSC was appointed Chief of Air Force on 4 July 2015. On that day, he outlined his intentions for the Air Force during his tenure.
“I am both deeply honoured and immensely proud to take command of the Royal Australian Air Force, especially as we continue down the path of transformation into a truly joint force able to fight and win in the information age. I am the 25th Chief of Air Force, and I am acutely aware of the long traditions of service, sacrifice and professional and personal excellence that I inherit.
The achievements of Air Force and its people over the last 94 years provides the foundation for both our performance today and, more importantly, for our successful journey into the future.
Today, the Air Force stands at the cusp of the most significant technological and capability transformation in its history. I therefore want to outline my intent for Air Force and how we will all contribute to: Our Air Force - Potent, Competent, Effective and Essential.”
