    RAAF Association Mission

    To foster friendships based on sharing Air Force and aviation experience, support commemorative activities, heritage and records of history and provide for the welfare of members through advice, liaison and representation.

Air and Space Power over the next 20-30 years

As a key part of Australia's defence strategy, the Royal Australian Air Force must be able to control Australia's air approaches and enable and support friendly operations in the land, sea and air environments. The Defence White Paper 2013 details many of the capabilities being acquired

Military Superannuation

The Government is commended for its pre-election commitment to provide fair indexation for DFRB and DFRDB superannuants, over 55, when the Bill to index their retirement pay (or pensions to many) was passed in the Senate recently. Retirement pay will be indexed at the same rate as age and service pensions and is effective from 1 July 2014. MSBS retirees do not have the same indexation; time will tell if this ever happens.
