16 – Feb : RAF Air Mobility

Air Commodore David Manning and Past Master Peter Hewitt introduce the Entrepreneurs’ second RAF affiliate, and ways you can get involved.

About this Event
Our new RAF Affiliate oversees and co-ordinates the movement of personnel, material and equipment around the globe in support of operations and it has never had a more capable and reactive transport fleet than it does now. Find out more about the people and purpose of the RAF’s Air Mobility Force, and how the Company of Entrepreneurs will be working with them.
Background

Livery Companies have supported the military for centuries, supplying weaponry, men and money in the defence of London and the UK. The Company of Entrepreneurs is proud to maintain this tradition, and has fostered its own links in the 21st Century.

The Entrepreneurs supplies its partners with skills, experience and hospitality in support of their valuable and vital work of the armed forces across the UK and the world.

The RAF Air Mobility Force

The Air Mobility Force provides UK Defence with the ability to deploy, sustain and recover personnel and equipment, often over significant distance. Air mobility consists of three mission types: airlift; air-to-air refuelling (AAR); and personnel recovery.

– Air Commodore David Manning is a senior RAF officer and the Commanding Officer of the AMF.

– Hon. Gp Capt. Peter LR Hewitt served as Master Entrepreneur in 2018-19. He is a member of the RAF’s 601 Squadron – a reserve unit of senior business figures that provides specialist industry and business support to the Air Staff.
