'Air Force people building the world's most respected Air and Space force...global power and reach for America' is the statement of the Air Force vision. Our Nation's Air Force develops, trains, sustains and integrates the elements of air and space power to produce: (1) Air and space superiority; (2) Global attack; (3) Rapid global mobility; (4) Precision engagement; (5) Information superiority; and (6) Agile combat support. Speed, flexibility, and the global nature of its reach and perspective distinguish the Air Force's execution of its core competencies.
