Our regional office based in Edinburgh covers Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Director Scotland, Northern Ireland and NE England: Baz Dale

Baz Dale

Baz served in the RAF for 27 years. He enjoyed four tours as a Tornado GR1 and GR4 (Ground attack/Reconnaissance) Pilot and Qualified Flying Instructor, flying on 12 (Bomber), 617 (The Dambusters), and XV (Operational Conversion Unit) Squadrons.

From 2012 to 2014, Baz commanded No. 72 Squadron, training the next generation of Fast-Jet pilots, at RAF Linton on Ouse, and he has been an Air Experience Pilot for the Air Training Corps since 2008. He also undertook several interesting staff appointments, including Global Strategic Trends, HR and a major capability programme, within HQ Air Command and MOD Head Office during his career.

Baz was delighted to join the RAF Benevolent Fund as Director for Scotland and Northern Ireland in August 2017. He is very keen to develop the network of contacts and supporters across his area of responsibility; this includes within national and local Government, other military charities, and corporate partners and individuals who have an interest in the RAF and its people (past, present and future).

Baz's excellent team are also eager to enlist the support of RAF regular and reserve personnel, and members of the Air Training Corps, in community fundraising and challenge events.

Baz can signpost members of the RAF Family towards help, should they need it, by putting them in touch with the relevant welfare team at the RAF Benevolent Fund. Please do not hesitate to contact him, or a member of his team at the Edinburgh office, if you know of someone who might need assistance.
