Commander, Naval Air Forces

The original existence of Commander, Naval Air Forces, was a result of increasing focus on aviation as an element of Naval striking power during WWII.

This created a requirement for a type commander to prepare general policy and doctrine for the operation of aviation units, to recommend the types, characteristics and numbers of aircraft required, and to carry out the strategic distribution of all air units.

It was further decided that two subordinate commands would be created to manage these tasks separately for the Pacific and Atlantic ocean areas of operation.
