The Yuktobanian Air Force, abbreviated as Y.A.F is the airborne arm of the Yuktobanian military forces.

The Y.A.F fought alongside the Osean Defense Forces during the Belkan War against the Belkan Federation military forces and once more against their former allies during the first half of the Circum-Pacific War in late 2010. They employ a large variety of aircraft, ranging from light fighters like the MiG-21bis Fishbed and MiG-29A Fulcrum to strategic bombers like the Avro Vulcan, transports, helicopters and others.

Similar to the Federal Erusea Air Force, many of the Yuktobanian Air Force's squadrons are named after astronomy terms, such as Russian-made satellites.
