Until 2007 the RSAF command structure comprised six functional departments: Air Manpower, Air Intelligence, Air Operations, Air Logistics, Air Plans and Air Training. From 2007 a new structure has been progressively introduced. The new structure is based on five major commands, each with a number of divisions:
Air Combat Command (ACC)
Fighter Group (FG)
Transport Group (TG)
Air Defence and Operations Command (ADOC)
Air Defence Group (ADG)
Air Operations Control G>roup (AOCG)
Air Surveillance Control Group (ASCG)
Air Power Generation Command (APGC)
4 Air Bases with ground-based squadrons
Participation Command (PC)
Divisional Air Defence Group (DAG)
Heli Group (HG)
Tactical Air Support Group (TASG)
Air Force Training Command
Flying Training Institute (FTI)
Air Warfare Training Institute (AWTI)
Training Development Group (TDG)
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Command (UC)
– 3 squadrons plus UAV Training School (UTS)
The transition was completed in August 2008.
Basically, ACC oversees the combat squadrons, ADOC oversees radar surveillance, APGC runs the air bases and ground support units, PC is responsible for the tactical helicopter squadrons and battlefield air defence units, AFTC runs the flying schools, and UC operates UAVs.
In addition to the above, there are a number of units based overseas, in France, Australia and the USA which concentrate on aircrew initial and conversion training. This is primarily due to the small size of Sinapore island and the limited amount of airspace available for training missions.
