The Sri Lanka Air Force Ushers in the New Year
The Commander of the Air Force, Air Marshal Kapila Jayampathy addressed the Air Force Board of Management, all Officers, other ranks and civilian staff of AFHQ and SLAF Station Colombo this morning (01 January 2019) at the Air Force Headquarters premises.

The proceedings, which were streamed live to all stations of the SLAF, commenced with the hoisting of the national flag, singing of the national anthem and the recitation of oath/affirmation of the public service. Thereafter, the Commander addressed all personnel present and the entire SLAF.

In his address, the Commander invited all to look back on the year that was. He expressed his gratitude to all personnel as all the goals that the SLAF had set out to achieve in the year 2018 were made a reality. He also noted that the year 2018 saw the launching of the “SLAF Doctrine” and the “Vision 2025” which will be the platform to plan the Air Force of the future.

The Commander also spoke of the major developments in the infrastructure of SLAF Bases and Stations, improvements and new additions to welfare facilities for serving and retired servicemen and women. He also spoke of the enormous nation building effort of the Air Force and made a special note on the first ever Aerial Seed Bombing Mission carried out recently. The Commander said that the New Year will see a timely restructuring of the Air Force under the Air Commands Concept. He gave his assurance that 2019 would see the SLAF fulfilling its commitments towards national security and its responsibilities not only in Sri Lanka but beyond its shores, in the United Nations deployments as well. He also said that the SLAF would also lend its full support to the endeavour of the state to achieve sustainable agricultural development in the Island.

A multi religious ceremony was also held at the AFHQ Auditorium to invoke blessings on the SLAF and its personnel. The event concluded with the customary All Ranks Breakfast at the 12th Floor Lobby.
