Abstract : Air Force Manual (AFM 1-I), Basic Aerospace Doctrine of the United States Air Force, fails to classify Air Mobility as a weapon of deterence. The basis of this failure lies in the doctrine's narrow definition of aerospace power. AFM 1-I limits the use of this power soley for military purposes. However, aerospace power has a much broader application. As an instrument of national power, it can also be applied in non-lethal ways to achieve our national objectives. An analysis of Air Mobility's history proves this to be true.
