--Were you looking for air force, a unit in the air force branch?--
The ZX Clan Air Force (ZXAF), is an organization that was created in 2010, and currently contains one station, which is located in Toronto. The air force is the main airbourne branch of the ZX Clan. It is responsible for the use of the ZX Clan's aircraft. People from the ZXAF are called airmen. The official colours of the ZXAF are blue, light blue, and blue.
The ZXAF is dedicated to protection and defence. The goal and first priority of the ZXAF is to protect allied territory and airspace, mainly against hostile aircraft. The ZXAF is also used for offence, and will work with the other branches of the ZX Clan (namely the army and the marine corps) to provide support. This support includes transport, cover fire, etc. The primary goal of the ZXAF is to keep allied countries' airspace and civialians safe.
Currently, the ZXAF is uninvolved with any active military engagements, and is focusing on building itself up. Although it was recently deployed in (and still pulling out of) Afghanistan, alongside the Canadian Forces.
In late 2010, the ZX Clan turned into the ZX Clan Marine Corps (ZXMC), and three other branches, the ZXAF, ZXA and ZXN came shortly after, starting with the ZXAF in October of 2010. The first member of the air force was then-PltOff. Marcotte, who was formerly an officer cadet. Currently SqnLdr. Marcotte is in charge of the air force, and commands the First Squadron.
During its early stages of active use, the ZXAF was deployed in Afghanistan (around late 2010 and early 2011), but was pulled out alongside the Canadian Forces during July of 2011.
