The Falcarian Air Force is one of four major branches of the Falcarian Defence Force, responsible for aeronautical defences, radio communication and research related to flight. it is garrisoned out of Arbonia, with a secondary outpost in Svoboda.

History

The Falcarian Air Force was originally founded during Turto as His Majesty’s Royal Airforce on 8 August 2013, after the dissolution of Turto all members of the Armed Forces were transferred to the Falcarian Armed Forces, which later changed names to become the Falcarian Defence Force. During this period the name of the Air force was also changed to correspond with it's new nation.

The Command Structure of the Air Force was revised in 2017.

As of 2019 the Air Force has seen no combat service, and does not intend to do so in the foreseeable future, it does however continue to serve in civil aeronautical roles and radio communications along with governmental research.
