The 60th anniversary of the Sri Lanka Air Force  falls today. The Sri Lanka Air Force which was initiated by the British 60 years ago has turned out to be a highly professional outfit with its servicemen and playing a pivotal and indispensable role in defeating LTTE terrorism on May 19, 2009 along with the other forces of Sri Lanka

The precursor of Sri Lankan Air Force were the elements of the British Royal Air Force based in Sri Lanka during the World War II.

Japan entered World War II with the bombing of the Pearl Harbour on December 7, 1941. The Japanese fleet with a force of about 125 aircraft attacked strategic targets in Colombo on April 5, 1942 and the China Bay airfield in Trincomalee on April 8, 1942.

Between the late 1930s and the early 1950s a great deal of military flying activities took place in and from Sri Lanka. These activities were conducted by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm (FAA). RAF Airfields were established at Colombo Racecourse, Ratmalana, Katukurunda, Negombo, China Bay, Minneriya, Vavuniya, Kankesanthurai, Sigiriya, Dambulla, Mawanella, Koggala, Kalametiya and Puttalam.

Later on the Royal Ceylon Air Force was born on March 2, 1951 with a Regular Air Force, a Regular Air Force Reserve, a Volunteer Air Force and a Volunteer Air Force Reserve becoming the youngest of the Defence Services of Ceylon. Cadets D De S Seneviratne and Paddy Mendis were recruited to the RCyAF on August 8, 1951.
