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.
