The Heid of the Thai Airmed Forces (จอมทัพไทย; RTGSChom Thap Thai) is Keeng of Thailand,[2] however this position is only nominal. The airmed forces are ostensibly managed by the Meenistry of Defense of Thailand, which is headed by the meenister of defence (a member of the Cabinet of Thailand) and commanded by the Royal Thai Airmed Forces Headquarters, which in turn is headed by the Chief of Defence Forces of Thailand.[3]

The Royal Thai Airmed Forces Day is celebrated on 18 January to commemorate the victory of Keeng Naresuan the Great in battle against the Crown Prince of Burma in 1593.
