Adon is a qualified Navigator, Operation Officer and Air Traffic Controller. During 2021 he was appointed Aide-de-Camp to the Chief of Air Force which lead to the career re-vector into his current position within Defence Space Command. He has flown missions in support of Operations RESOLUTE and ASTUTE and deployed on Operation Philippine Assist the wake of Typhoon Haiyan and to South Sudan as a United Nations Peacekeeper on Operation Aslan.
Adon was awarded the 2021 Chief of Air Force – Officer Instructor of the Year Award as the first simultaneously dual qualified instructor at both the School of Air Traffic Control and the Air Mission Training School, and is involved in the delivery of the Leadership Enrichment Program to RAAF junior officers and enlisted personnel.
