In Conversation Live with Air Vice-Marshal Simon Edwards
Air Vice-Marshal (AVM) Simon S. Edward, Senior Officer in the Royal Air Force (RAF) and currently Assistant Chief of the Air Staff will be joining Professor Roger Kirby, RSM President, for a conversation about his RAF career, what inspired him to join and the places his posts have taken him. Simon will also be talking about his experiences of aeromedical evacuations as a C-17 Globemaster pilot, how the RAF and wider Defence have supported the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic under Operation Rescript, and why it is important for the RAF to engage with the public.

Simon joined the RAF in 1990 through a Sixth Form Scholarship scheme. He is an Air Transport pilot, initially flying the C-130 Hercules and C-17 Globemaster, a large military aircraft designed to perform tactical and strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world. Simon commanded the RAF’s C-17 Squadron from 2008 until 2010, led Number 904 Expeditionary Air Wing at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan in 2011, and was the Station Commander for RAF Brize Norton from 2014 until 2017, home to Air Mobility operations and military parachuting.

After completing the Higher Command and Staff Course he took on the role of Assistant Chief of Staff for Capability Delivery at Headquarters Air Command. Recently he returned to the MoD as Assistant Chief of the Air Staff (Strategy).
