The Royal Australian Air Force has prepared this Air Force Capability Guidebook to inform interested parties about the strategic utility of Australia’s air power and to describe Air Force capabilities and organisational structure. This book aims to promote a broad understanding of how Air Force employs air power to contribute to Australia’s security needs which may in turn be useful in supporting broader strategic planning. This may include activities such as force structure reviews, integrated investment planning and ongoing implementation of Plan Jericho. The information contained within this publication should also assist interactions between Defence and other government departments. Importantly, this publication is intended to inform members of Government, other government departments, industry, academia, non-government organisations and visiting officials of the nature and complexity of our Air Force and the vital role it plays in Australia’s security.
