This paper, based on information the author gathered during a trip to Finland in May 1989, reviews the current structure and mission of the Finnish Air Force (FAF), describes its maintenance and pilot training programs, and outlines the FAF's problem areas and plans for the future. The author suggests that, during the 1990s, as the FAF attempts perhaps its most ambitious modernization program to date, Finnish neutrality policy will be tested by a host of political, technological, and fiscal pressures.
