Colombian military aviation is one of the most powerful in Latin America and comprises aviation divisions from four branches: the Fuerza Aérea Colombiana (FAC, Colombian Air Force), Armada Nacional de la República de Colombia (ARC, Colombian National Navy), Ejército Nacional de Colombia (EJC, Colombian National Army) and Policía Nacional de Colombia (PNC, National Police of Colombia). While the FAC has been operating for more than a century, and remains the main aviation force, the other three have become very powerful and efficient forces over the past 40 years. The PNC is the biggest force of its type in the world. Colombia has struggled for decades with internal conflicts involving guerrilla groups and drug traffickers. In recent years, the threat posed by Venezuela has forced its aviation units to develop fighting capabilities from largely asymmetric warfare to facing a more conventional enemy. With over 180 images, this book provides a look at the history, organisation, deployment, missions and aircraft of all four of Colombia’s aviation forces.
