Royal New Zealand Air Force
Royal New Zealand Air Force

The Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF)[1] (Maori: Te Tauaarangi o Aotearoa, "New Zealand Warriors of the Sky"; old title Te Hokowhitu o Kahurangi, "War party of the Blue"[2]) is the air arm of the New Zealand Defence Force. It was formed from New Zealand components of the British Royal Air Force, becoming an independent force in 1923, although many RNZAF aircrew continued to serve in the Royal Air Force until the end of the 1940s. The RNZAF fought in World War II, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Gulf War plus various United Nations peacekeeping missions. From a 1945 peak of over 1,000 combat aircraft the RNZAF has shrunk to a strength of around 62 aircraft in 2010, focusing on maritime patrol and transport duties in support of the Royal New Zealand Navy and the New Zealand Army.

The RNZAF motto is the same as that of the Royal Air Force, Per ardua ad astra, meaning "Through adversity to the stars."
