In 1945 a large group of serving and retired airmen from all ranks and trades gathered in Auckland, New Zealand, and unanimously voted to form an association. Originally it was called the "Air Force Association" but tlater this was changed to "New Zealand Air Force association"
In 1975, by Order in Council the Association was granted the right to use the title 'Royal'.
Today the Association has 31 branches ranging from Kaitaia in the far north to Invercargill in the deep south of the country.
Branches are largely autonomous and are linked together by a common set of national rules. The governing body is a National Council which meets annually at a national conference. There is also a National Executive which meets twice each year in Wellington. The day to day running of the association, nationally, is in the hands of a National Secretary, resident in Wellington.
