Dan Chorley


Dan is the Association’s website administrator and ‘tech guy’, keeping ubas.club up to date and functional.

After spending three years on UBAS while studying at Keele University, he joined the Royal Air Force as an Aerospace Battle Manager. With a passion for digital communications, Dan re-branched to the People Operations Profession  as this was where all Media and Communications roles resided.

From 2019-2020 he was the the Media and Communications Officer for RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland, leading the media engagements for arrival of the first five submarine-hunting Poseidon aircraft, travelling to Nigeria as part of a short-term training team, and visiting as many of the Scottish islands as possible.

He was then posted to 83 Expeditionary Air Group, leading a mobile news team tasked with covering the RAF’s activities in the Middle East. He led the media planning and delivery for the first operational use of Storm Shadow cruise missiles from RAF Typhoons, as well as Exercise Epic Skies IV which saw 12 Squadron flying the Eurofighter Typhoon in Qatar, for the first time as a joint RAF-Qatari squadron.

Dan was then posted to MOD Main Building as a Staff Officer to the Assistant Chief of the Air Staff. He led high profile activities including the Senior Leadership Team’s engagements at the Royal International Air Tattoo, became a problem solver and strategic advisor for the Channel 4 documentary Top Guns: Inside the RAF, and coordinated the high profile funeral of Peter Brown, one of the last remaining Caribbean WWII aircrew.

He has now left the Royal Air Force as a regular, but remains in the Royal Auxiliary Air Force as a Media Reserve.
