WE RUN DEEP AS OUR RANGI
The Royal New Zealand Air Force is a skilled, close crew whose bonds run as deep as the blue skies above. We’re made up of highly trained, adaptable teams who work with and deploy cutting-edge technologies. Together, we solve complex challenges and push each other to reach new heights.
Our connections extend beyond our Service, including working with the Navy and Army as well as other government and non-government agencies. At home or across the globe, wherever we’re soaring, we remain tight.
Helping at home and abroad
A big part of our work involves assisting communities affected by conflict or natural disasters. Our teams specialise in rescue and disaster relief, working together to help people stand on their own once again. No matter the situation, keeping others safe, keeps us close.

Protecting Aotearoa and its people
Aircraft are the fastest transport available and allow us to access places others can’t. We work closely to carry people and supplies across New Zealand ensuring our people have what they need, when they need it. Always primed and ready to fly, our fleet can make all the difference when it matters most.
