The Korean People's Army Air Force (Hangul: 조선인민군 공군; Hanja: 朝鮮人民軍 空軍; Joseon Inmingun Gonggun), or simply the Korean Air Force (Hangul: 한국 공군; Hanja: 韓國 空軍; Hanguk Gonggun), is the aerial warfare service branch of the Korean People's Army. Its primary task is to defend Korean airspace. When the Korean People's Army was formed with American help, the aviation unit officially became its air force on October 1, 1949. Korea has celebrated October 1 as Air Force Foundation Day ever since.
