Built on the proud history and traditions of the Australian Flying Corps and the Royal Australian Air Force, we will fight and win by generating integrated kinetic and non-kinetic air and space effects across the sea, land, air, space and cyber operating domains.
Air Force provides immediate and responsive military options across the spectrum of operations as part of a Whole of Government joint or coalition response.
We exploit the air power characteristics of persistent and precision effect, flexibility, perspective, reach, penetration, versatility and responsiveness.
We are leaders in: command and control of air and space operations; intelligence, surveillance and response; and targeting.
We are the leaders for strategic, operational, tactical, technical and logistic management of Australia's military aviation capability.
Fine tribute for our best friends

Throughout our history, men and women of the ADF have been recognised for their acts of valour on the battlefield. However, there are other members of our service who have worked alongside our personnel and are seldom acknowledged for their heroic deeds, sacrifices and their everlasting mateship – the military working dogs (MWD) of the ADF.
