Today, The Air League would like to thank ACM Sir Stephen Hillier for his tremendous contribution to the Royal Air Force and the military capability of the United Kingdom, particularly through his last three years service as Chief of the Air Staff. The Air League believes that the Royal Air Force is the most professional air force in the world and that it makes a vital contribution to the foreign policy agenda of the United Kingdom, defence of the realm and UK national security. Entirely aligned with the Air League’s values on a broader basis, the RAF is a major contributor to the UK’s skills agenda and fosters a culture of innovation and working together.
The Air League congratulates and wishes ACM Mike Wigston every success, as he begins his new appointment as CAS, and we very much look forward working with him in future.
