Air Force 100

On 31 March 2021, the Royal Australian Air Force will mark 100 years of service to Australia.

2021 will be an important time to reflect on our enduring contribution to the security of Australia.

From our modest beginnings in 1921, Air Force has grown into a potent, world class Air Force which Australia relies upon in both conflict and peace. When Australia needs us, we are ready to respond.

Air Force Centenary events will highlight the spectrum of air and space power capabilities in today’s Air Force, and Air Force’s contributions to the Australian Defence Force’s Joint Force effects more broadly as part of One Team, One Defence.

Air Force 2021 is planning a national series of events and initiatives that will honour the sacrifices and service of the last 100 years, demonstrate today’s highly capable force, and foreshadow our continued evolution into the future.

Air Force 2021 will be a once-in-a-generation opportunity to engage with the Australian nation, showcase Australian air power, inspire the next generation of aviation specialists, and acknowledge the critical role industry and the community play in Air Force’s success.
