The Deputy Director European Air Group, Air Cdre Robert Adang, recently conducted separate meetings with two EAG 1* POCs at the EAG HQ at RAF High Wycombe. The Italian 1* Point of Contact, Brig Gen Luigi del Bene met with the DD and permanent staff at the EAG Headquarters on 23 November, followed by the FRA 1* POC, Brig Gen Gilles Perrone the next day. A full spectrum of air power subjects was discussed, including the impact of new technologies on interoperability and the role and direction of the Interoperability in Future Combined Air Operations (IFCAO) work currently being undertaken by the Permanent Staff. These meetings were part of a programme of individual engagements with all EAG 1* POCs, with the aim of invigorating new initiatives, discussions and EAG momentum. The DD has now held meetings with six out of the seven EAG POCs, with the remaining POC (NLD) scheduled in the near future.
