The Libyan Air Force (Arabic: القوات الجوية الليبية‎) is the branch of the Libyan military responsible for aerial warfare. The Libyan Air Force personnel strength is 18,000, with an inventory of ? combat capable aircraft operating from 13 military airbases in Libya.

The air force was first established as the Royal Libyan Air Force (Arabic: Al Quwwat al Jawwiya al Malakiya al Libiyya) in 1951. It was originally equipped with a small number of transports and trainers. However, the first fighters were delivered in 1967. In 1970 it changed its name to the Libyan Air Force. From 1970 a significant expansion of the air force took place, with a large number of Soviet and some French combat aircraft being purchased.
