Air Chief Marshal (Hindi: एयर चीफ मार्शल), abbreviated as ACM is the highest rank currently achievable by serving officers of the Royal Vishwamitran Air Force, the aerial warfare forces of the Vishwamitran Armed Forces and the second highest rank in the entire paygrade structure which was officially created following the establishment of the armed forces in 2018. A four-star rank with NATO code OF-9, it is equivalent to a General in the Royal Vishwamitran Army or an Admiral in the Royal Vishwamitran Navy and ranks below a Marshal of the Royal Air Force and above a Air Marshal. An Air Chief Marshal's insignia consists of eagle over a wreath topped by the Sovereign's crown.

The second highest rank of Air Chief Marshal was created on the 13th May 2018 by President Anoushkaa Patranabish on the eve of the constitutional coup of 14 May 2018 and later assumed the rank herself. She remained as the only Air Chief Marshal in the Air Force until the appointment of Tanishkaa Patranabish to the rank in April 2021. The most recent appointment is that of Matthew Griffin who was promoted to the rank following the renaming and updating of the position of Commander of the Air Force to Chief of the Air Staff.

The Professional head of the Air Force, the Chief of the Air Staff, is the only individual within the Air force with the rank of Air Chief Marshal. The rank of Air Chief Marshal in the Royal Vishwamitran Air Force is the highest conferrable paygrade rank to which honorary appointments are made.
