The 1st Imperial Air Group, formerly the 1st Paper Air Group, is one of two units within the Adammic Air Force in the Empire of Adammia, and the only Air Force reserve unit.

History

The unit was originally created in October 2013 and was led by Commodore Sir Tom Bennett, working alongside the Imperial Airbourne in the Adammic Army. In 2014, it constructed and flew a couple of paper aircraft. In the Astley Meadow Insurgency, it took part in March 2014 when its Commodore launched a "drone strike" at Luke, the insurgent, by throwing a paper projectile, which missed its target. It fell into inactivity in late 2014, but was considered too valuable to be disbanded. In January 2015, it was reformed, gaining a new Commodore - Daniel Pettinger - and getting its current name, along with a logo. It operated remote-controlled aircraft out of the Air Force's headquarters, AAF Dearneland airbase. In January 2018, the unit was disbanded after Dearneland left the Empire.

In January 2020, the unit was re-activated under its third commanding officer, Commodore Sam Baker. However, it was soon downgraded to the status of reserve unit due to inactivity in September 2020.
