RF-A is a series of Pacific Air Forces commander-directed field training exercises vital to maintaining peace and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, and providing U.S. units and partner nation forces like the ROKAF the opportunity to sharpen their skills and strengthen interoperability in more than 67,000 square miles of combat training airspace within the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex.
