The Government has decided to appoint Air Vice Marshal Sudarshana Pathirana, as the 18th Commander of the Sri Lanka Air Force.

His appointment is set to come into effect from 2 November and the reason for Pathirana’s promotion is the retirement of Air Force Commander, Air Marshal Sumangala Dias.

Air Vice Marshal Pathirana is an old boy of Dharmaraja College, Kandy.

Pathirana, who joined the Sri Lanka Air Force on 2 January 1987, had also made an immense contribution towards the defeat of the LTTE during Eelam War IV.
