Serving New Zealand from the skies

The Air Force is a group of highly trained, adaptable and skilled Kiwis able to work with and deploy complex, cutting-edge airborne and ground-based technologies. We're part of the New Zealand Defence Force – a Force for New Zealand – so we work closely with the Navy and Army, as well as with other government and non-government agencies to protect our country's interests at home and overseas.
