The Royal Sjealandic Air Force or RSAF (Kongelige Sjællandske Luftvåben, KSL) is the aerial warfare force of the Sjealandic Realm. It is the oldest independent air force in Nordania, having been formed just before Sjealands entrance into the Continental War in 1918. It proved effective against the Concorde, earning its place on the battlefield against the Swastrians, and was soon employed to police Sjealands vast holdings across Nordania, one the its modern principal duties.

The standing mission of the RSAF is to help the two larger bodies of the Royal Sjealandic Defence achieve their duties, this is handled as providing the necessary support and capabilities needed for the Army and Navy to complete their goals. In particular this consists of maritime flying and patrolls and to promote Sjealandic supremacy in its waters, especially against states like Swastria and Ambrose.

Today it is among the best-equipped air forces in the world, operating a fleet of various types of aircraft both domestically produced and imported. This fleet largely consists of fixed-wing aircraft, including: fighter and strike aircraft, airborne early warning and control and strategic and tactical transport aircraft. Additionally a large amount of helicopters are under the RSAF's command, and the helicopter and plane services of both the army and navy are considered to be under the command of the RSAF should it request it. The majority of the RSAF's aircraft and personnel are based in Sjealand, with a small amount stationed in the Union of Nautasian Islamic Republics on peacekeeping missions and others part of rotating NFO squadrons.
