Three used as transports on an ad hoc basis, in conjunction with Air Kampuchea (later called Cambodian Airlines). Other An-24s have been, or are operating with civilian airlines in Cambodia. These aircraft are possibly used when needed by the air force.

One operated by the RCAF circa 1993-2000. Withdrawn from use. WAFD 2006/07 quotes reg'n XU-310, but this was a civil An-24RV. Other sources quote XU-325, but this has remained civilian since its sale by Aeroflot.
Two were taken over in early 2000 from the airline Royal Air Cambodia (who obtained the aircraft in 1993). Both are operated by the Transport squadron.

The MiG-21bis Fishbed-Ls operated by the RCAF had all served with the KPAF. Four instead of the planned 13 were up-graded by IAI at Tel Aviv/Ben Gurion IAP during 1995. Plans for additional upgrades were stalled due to lack of funds. Most of the remaining MiGs are currently grounded due to airframe fatigue and lack of funds. The operational capability of the RCAF MiGs may perhaps be described as limited at best, and non-existent at worst.

Mil Mi-8 Hip
Eight initially delivered in 1988, followed by two more ex-Ukraine in 1994-95 and two from Slovakia in March 1997. At least twelve (14?) Mi-8s have seen service with the RCAF. Most of these were "inherited" from the KPAF. During the campaign against the remnants of the Khmer Rouge, the Mi-8s saw service as both gunships and troop transports. Some wear Kampuchea Airlines titles. Only 2 Mi-8/17s in service at any one time between 2002 and 2005, with another 3 operated by Prime Minister Hun Sen's body guard unit.
