The Brazilian Air Force (Portuguese: Força Aérea Brasileira, FAB) is the air branch of the Brazilian Armed Forces and one of the three national uniformed services. The FAB was formed when the Army and Navy air branch were merged into a single military force initially called "National Air Forces". Both air branches transferred their equipment, installations and personnel to the new force.

According to the Flight International and the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Brazilian Air Force has an active strength of 70,710 military personnel and operates around 615 aircraft. The Brazilian Air Force is the largest air force in the Southern hemisphere and the sixth in the Americas after the United States Air Force, United States Navy, United States Army, United States Marine Corps, and Royal Canadian Air Force.
