Air Force Mission
The mission of the United States Air Force is to fly, fight and win ... in air, space and cyberspace.
Air Force Core Competencies
Developing Airmen, technology to warfighting and integrating operations.
Air and Space Superiority
Air Force Distinctive Capabilities
With it, joint forces can dominate enemy operations in all dimensions: land, sea, air and space.
Because of technological advances, the Air Force can attack anywhere, anytime and do so quickly and with greater precision than ever before.
Rapid Global Mobility
Being able to respond quickly and decisively anywhere we're needed is key to maintaining rapid global mobility.
The essence lies in the ability to apply selective force against specific targets because the nature and variety of future contingencies demand both precise and reliable use of military power with minimal risk and collateral damage.
The ability of joint force commanders to keep pace with information and incorporate it into a campaign plan is crucial.
Agile Combat Support
Deployment and sustainment are keys to successful operations and cannot be separated. Agile combat support applies to all forces, from those permanently based to contingency buildups to expeditionary forces.
The Air Force bases these core competencies and distinctive capabilities on a shared commitment to three values: Integrity first, Service before self, and Excellence in all we do.
