Welcome to the February 2020 edition of ADM: Airpower 2020.
This month’s editorial from Managing Editor Katherine Ziesing looks beyond the rhetoric of ‘5th Gen’ and into the real differences in how RAAF is using and exploiting technology. Katherine also covers the end of the relationship between Tiger helicopters and Pegasus emergency flotation devices.
Deputy Editor and aerospace aficionado Nigel Pittaway is in his element for this month’s edition with three articles: one on Airbus’ Smart Buyer solution for Land 4503; a second on Chinook sustainment from an Army perspective; and a gripping account of the Tiger helicopter in combat with the French Army in North Africa.
Rob Napier covers advanced technologies in the RAAF, Senior Correspondent Julian Kerr writes on No 2 Operational Conversion Unit’s transition from F/A-18 Classic Hornets to F-35A Lightning IIs, and Online Editor Ewen Levick talks to Director General Air Combat Capability Air Commodore Darren Goldie about upcoming workforce changes for RAAF.
Our From the Source interviewee this month is Chief Executive of Northrop Grumman Australia Chris Deeble.
