Briefly on the command structure:

The structure that lasted for most of the Cold War time was shaped in early 1962:

- HQ of the Air Defence and Air Force - Sofia

- 10th Composite Air Corps, HQ Plovdiv

- 1st Air Defence Division, HQ Bojourishte

- 2nd Air Defence Division, HQ Yambol

Decree 254/Oct 28, 1992 of the President of Republic of Bulgaria renamed the Air Defence and Air Force the Air Force.

After experimenting with the 'base' structure in Bezmer and Cheshnegirovo in 1993, the bases replaced the regiments with Order 219/Aug 18, 1994 of the Air Force Chief of Staff.

On Oct 1, 1996 the Air Force moved to a Corps structure - 10th Composite Air Corps was renamed Tactical Air Corps and the two air defence divisions merged into Air Defence Corps, HQ Sofia.

On June 1, 2003 the Command structure replaced the Corps. The Tactical Air Corps was renamed Tactical Air Command and the Air Defence Corps was renamed Air Defence Command.
