The Wilkonian Air Service is the youngest ervice amongst the four Regular Establishment services in the Armed Forces of Wilkonia. Numbering just over 115,000 persons in active units and another 12,000 is reserve units it is the smallest service amongst all of the Uniformed Services of Wilkonia. The Wilkonian Air Service (WAS) dates its origins to the Second Global War during the 1940s. The rising use of airborne vehicles, at first dirigibles and blimps but later propeller driven craft, for scouting, and counter-scouting led to many nations adopting a branch of service for the training of pilots and ground crews. Wilkonia upon its entry into the War soon realized that planners and operational staff at the then Imperial Wilkonian Army Air Corps were not receiving sufficient control over the operational needs of a modern air force. As such Parliament acted to seperate the Air Service asa seperate branch co-equal with the other three and gave it greater authority to set procurement, training, and operational priorities than possible under Army administration.
