History

Origins

The Royal Wellmoorean Air Force was founded on the 16th of March 2020, as the Wellmoorean Royal Air Force (WRAF), by Royal Decree. After some changes it was renamed to the Royal Wellmoorean Air Force (RWAF). The RWAF somewhat mirrors the Royal Air Force in the UK.

Personnel

Officers

Officers hold a commission from the sovreign, which provides the legal authority for them to issue orders to subordinates. The commission of a regular officer is granted after successfully completing the 24-week-long Initial Officer Training course.

Other Ranks

Other Ranks attend the Recruit Training Squadron for basic training. RWAF other ranks fall into four categories: Warrant Officers, Senior Non-Commissioned Officers, Junior Non-Commissioned Officers and Airmen. All Warrant Officers in the RWAF are equal in terms of rank, but the most senior Non-Commissioned appointment is known as the Chief of the Air Staff's Warrant Officer.

Ranks

The Royal Wellmoorean Air Forces shares rank structure and rank insignia with the Royal Air Force (with a few minor changes such as the Marshal of the RAF in the RWAF is Marshal of the RWAF).
