History of the Royal Australian Air Force
31st MARCH 1921 – 31st MARCH 2021

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) traces its history back to 1911 when the Imperial Conference held in London decided aviation should be developed within the Armed Forces of the British Empire. Australia implemented this decision, the only country to do so, by approving the establishment of the Central Flying School (CFS) in 1912. The location for the proposed school was initially to be at Duntroon, Australian Capital Territory, but in July 1913 Point Cook, Victoria, was announced as the preferred location. The first flights by CFS aircraft took place there in March 1914. RAAF Point Cook continues to operate, and is the home of the RAAF aircraft museum.


The Australian Flying Corps (AFC) earned a most creditable reputation in both Palestine and France during World War I as a part of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF). The Australian Flying Corps remained part of the Australian Army until 1919, when it was disbanded along with the AIF. Although the Central Flying School continued to operate at Point Cook, military flying virtually ceased until 1920, when the Australian Air Corps was formed.
