The US is home to the world's most dominant air guitarists. And as such, the AirForce is home to the US' elite air guitarists. The AirForce was born out of the SF/Bay Area, in 2010, after an immortal showing at the legendary Fillmore West, and comprised of the Bay Area's most dominant airists, the Original 12, formed by SF master air guitarist, Tiger Claw.

The family first started out with a world champion (Hot Lixx Hulahan), a legend (Bjorn Turoque), and several veterans of the trade, of which four from SF went on to win multiple regional championships over the years since the US Air Guitar Competition came to SF in 2006. In 2010, US Air Guitar issued an award - the Profile of Excellence in the Field of Magnificence, to two individuals, both from SF.

2011 saw the expansion of the AirForce as a show of appreciation, a way to honor, and an effort to bring those who would express the same appreciation, honor, love, passion and dedication to the art the AirForce holds so dearly, together as one.

The AirForce is proud to be represented in other regions, in addition to SF's Golden Gate Chapter, throughout the US: Capitol (DC), Cascadia (Seattle), Chi-Town (Chicago), Mid-Atlantic (Charlottesville), MidWest (Kansas City), NorthEast (NY), Pacific Coast (Los Angeles), PacNorWest (Portland), SoCal (San Diego), SouthBay (San Jose, closed), Southern (Houston), Twin Cities (Minneapolis), the UK, and Russia.

We are the jedi masters of air guitar. AirForce Command, is strong, with the force.

Congratulations AirForce Regional Champions

Minor changes to the site. No longer separated by chapters. Now by rank. Now, without further ado... The AirForce salutes the following AirForce members for their success in winning their US Air Guitar Regional Competitions. Tony Tapatio - Portland - a repeat win from the year before, moving up from Major to Lt. Colonel. Um - Seattle - our newest member to the AirForce, coming in as a Major, with the Seattle win. Mean Melin - Kansas City - what did you expect? Lt. Facemelter - San Diego - hometown advantage, no fair, up to Lt. Colonel, with another regional win. Six-String General - Los Angeles - also now a Lt. Colonel, with more than one regional win. Flying Finn - Minneapolis - Major props, not just for the regional win, but also, the awesome posters. Tommy Fretless - Wash, DC - taking the lead, for the rest of us to follow (baahaahaa). Van Dammage - Chicago - according to AirForce protocol, the DarkHorse is considered a regional, because you compete in the Nationals. Well done, troops.
