Editors Message (RCAF Journal - SUMMER 2016 - Volume 5, Issue 3)

Table of Contents

 

As we move forward into the annual posting season, there is the inevitable change that comes to Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) units around the country. In this, the Royal Canadian Air Force Journal (RCAFJ) is no different, as we now take the opportunity to say thank you to our Senior Editor, Major Bill March. It is hard to imagine an RCAFJ without Bill’s hand at the rudder, as it has been since the Fall 2008 edition was published. Bill’s dedication to developing the RCAFJ  has always been impressive.  His superb leadership has established the RCAFJ as a world-class publication, providing airpower enthusiasts a venue to further the development of airpower mastery within the RCAF.

This issue also provides an opportunity for all to peruse the award-winning “Cyber Warfare Schools of Thought: Bridging the Epistemological/Ontological Divide.” One of the Commander RCAF Awards, the Carr Award (Lieutenant-General Bill Carr) is presented to a Joint Command and Staff Programme student at Canadian Forces Staff College for a pre-eminent paper on an innovative airpower topic. This year’s award recipient, Lieutenant-Colonel P. E. C. Martin, provides some brilliant insights into a variety of approaches open to the RCAF in dealing with the issues associated with cyber and, in particular, how the RCAF might best approach these issues.

Enjoy the read.
