Last week, a mini-RAAF revolution took place when the Air Force decided to drop the term airmen in favour of aviators.
But on this week’s Australian Aviation Podcast, our chief pilot Christian “Boo” Boucousis tells stand-in host Adam Thorn they’ve got it all wrong.
The pair discuss whether the move wrecks tradition or will be an important part of modernising the organisation. What should the RAAF be doing to get the next generation itching to become fighter pilots?
Finally, the team discusses the latest problems to hit the country’s vaccine rollout. Will Fortress Australia ever lower its walls to the rest of the world?
