Air Marshal Phil Osborn CBE

Air Marshal Phil Osborn retired from the Royal Air Force after 37 years of service. Most recently, he was Chief of Defence Intelligence, and as such was at the heart of national security decision making, strategic intelligence provision, and national offensive cyber capability.

Previously, he commanded No 2 Group, one of the two operational Royal Air Force Groups, led the extensive Joint Forces capability portfolio, and led the design and development of the Royal Air Force's combat air capability. He served operationally as a Tornado navigator, commanded XIII Squadron Tornado, and was the Station Commander of Royal Air Force Marham.

Other than the Royal Air Force and aviation, his guilty pleasure is rugby, specifically supporting Royal Air Force Rugby after 3 years as President. Phil is proud to be the Chairman of RAFCT, allowing him to continue to support the Royal Air Force and its people, today and into the future.
