Some numbers of my readers emailed me requesting and urging me to write on Nigerian Air Force Ranks: Ranks in the Nigerian Airforce and Nigerian Air Force Salary Structure . In response to the messages i recieved , i will be talking my time this moment to write on Ranks in the Nigerian Airforce also known as Nigerian Air Force Ranks but i will be leaving one unattended to, that is Nigerian Air Force Salary Structure because we were unable to get the information that contain details of how much Nigerian Airforce officers are being paid on a monthly or yearly basis because it hasn’t been revealed .

Before i give you the complete details consigning the Nigerian Airforce ranks, i would like to give you a breif history of the Nigerian Airforce and how it came into existence. The Air Force was originally proposed in 1958, many lawmakers preferred to rely on the United Kingdom for air defence. But during peacekeeping operations in Congo and Tanganyika, the Nigerian Army had no air transport of its own, and so in 1962 the government began to recruit cadets for pilot training in various foreign countries, with the first ten being taught by the Egyptian Air Force .  That little introduction will do because that is not why we are here it was just by the way . The Nigerian Airforce ranks that i want to uncover to you comes in two categories , the  commissioned and non-commissioned officers .
