Military aircraft of Norway is a list of Royal Norwegian Air Force aircraft that was established in 1944 with the amalgamation of the Royal Norwegian Navy Air Service and the Norwegian Army Air Service, both of which were established in 1912. Below is a list of planes used by the Norwegian Air Forces through their history.
