Created in February 2007 by Db Penguin, the Club Penguin Air Force began their journey as a small army. However, they grew at a consistent pace. In May of 2007, Oagalthorp regarded them as “the third largest army in warfare” and “nearly the size of ACP”.Due to this, Oagalthorp sent a request to the Air Force to ally them with the Army of Club Penguin and the Rebel Penguin Federation against the Underground Mafias Army in WWIII. This war had been dragging on for a couple of months. The Air Force accepted, and became the army that finally tipped the balance in ACP’s favor, effectively ending the war in late May. Alongside the ACP and RPF, the Air Force delivered the Underground Mafias Army one final blow at the Battle of Breeze, a blow so devastating that it forced Pink Mafias into retirement and plunged UMA into chaos. Shortly after, they ceded victory to the ACP, RPF, and the Air Force.
After their monumental victory in WWIII, Db Penguin retired from the army due to a summer camp. Upon her return, she found the Air Force in shambles. She was left with no choice but to shut them down. In February 2008, the CPAF was restarted. However, after a few months, inactivity lead to their death. It was reopened for the last time in November 2008. Like the last revival, it was unable to replicate the success that the first generation had.
A spin off of the Air Force was be created in 2011 by Seer. To distinct themselves from the original CPAF, they called themselves "The Air Force of Club Penguin" (AFCP). Further more, they changed their uniform from the colors blue and orange to red. They’ve achieved some success, reaching as high as 6th on CPA Central on several occasion. However, they’ve yet to make even close to the historical imprint that Db Penguin’s Air Force of 2007 made, an imprint that likely will seldom ever be matched.
