Air commodore (Air Cdre in the RAF and IAF; AIRCDRE in the RNZAF and RAAF; formerly A/C in the RCAF) is a one-star rank and the most junior of the air-officer ranks which originated in and continues to be used by the Royal Air Force. The rank is also used by the air forces of many countries which have historical British influence such as Bangladesh, and it is sometimes used as the English translation of an equivalent rank in countries which have a non-English air force-specific rank structure. The name of the rank is always the full phrase and is never shortened to "Commodore".

dbo:abstract
  • Der Air Commodore (Air Cdre) ist ein Dienstgrad in der Royal Air Force. Er kommt auch in den Luftwaffen anderer Staaten vor, die in ihrem Dienstgradsystem durch das britische System beeinflusst wurden. So gibt es diesen Dienstgrad in der Indian Air Force, der Royal Australian Air Force, der Royal New Zealand Air Force, in der Pakistan Air Force sowie in der Koninklijke Luchtmacht. Der Dienstgrad eines Air Commodore entspricht einem Brigadegeneral der Landstreitkräfte und ist damit nach deutschem Verständnis der unterste Generalsrang. Im britischen Verständnis, welches den Rang aus dem Marinedienstgrad Commodore ableitet, ist der Air Commodore dagegen noch kein tatsächlicher Generalsdienstgrad. Die eigentlichen Generalsdienstgrade beginnen nach britischer Tradition beim Air Vice-Marshal. Darüber rangieren in der Royal Air Force der Air Marshal und der Air Chief Marshal. (de)

The name of the rank is always the full phrase and is never shortened to "Commodore". In the present-day RAF, air commodores typically hold senior appointments within groups, acting directly in support of the air officer commanding. However, during the inter-war period, and in the case of the contemporary No. 83 Expeditionary Air Group, the air officer commanding held or holds air commodore rank. In the Air Training Corps, an appointed air commodore holds ultimate authority over the cadet organisation as the Commandant Air Cadets. (en)
