Lieutenant - Air Force Rank

Air Force Rank

While some air forces use the army rank system, the British Royal Air Force and many other Commonwealth air forces use another rank system in which flight lieutenant ranks with an army captain and naval lieutenant, a flying officer ranks with an army lieutenant, and a pilot officer with an army second lieutenant.

In the US Air Force, the Third Lieutenant Program refers specifically to a training program at active duty air force bases for cadets of the Air Force Academy and Air Force ROTC the summer before their fourth and final year before graduation and commissioning. A single silver or subdued pip is used to designate this rank.

The Royal Air Force also has an acting pilot officer designation, the most junior commissioned rank in the British armed forces. It is functionally equivalent to third lieutenant (OF-1c / O-0).

Famous quotes containing the words rank, air and/or force:

    In everything from athletic ability to popularity to looks, brains, and clothes, children rank themselves against others. At this age [7 and 8], children can tell you with amazing accuracy who has the coolest clothes, who tells the biggest lies, who is the best reader, who runs the fastest, and who is the most popular boy in the third grade.
    Stanley I. Greenspan (20th century)

    More beautiful and soft than any moth
    With burring furred antennae feeling its huge path
    Through dusk, the air liner with shut-off engines
    Glides over suburbs
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)

    The mind is the terriblest force in the world, father,
    Because, in chief, it, only, can defend
    Against itself. At its mercy, we depend
    Upon it.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
