This book is the eighth in a 10 volume set describing the concise history of the units of the Royal Australian Air Force between 1921 and 1996. It was was published and launched as part of the RAAF's 75th birthday in 1996.
The Royal Australian Air Force has always prided itself on the quality of its training. The number and variety of training units described in Volume 8 are evidence of the importance the RAAF places on training personnel in all aspects of its operations and manpower development - from cooks, logisticians and officer candidates to technicians and pilots. Just as the Empire Air Training Scheme during World War II ensured aerial superiority for the Allies in our days of greatest need, current training units ensure that RAAF personnel today are prepared for any task which they may be called upon to perform.
