Generally, operations conducted in Indonesia are divided into three main categories: Military Operations, Search-and-Rescue Operations, and Special Operations. Each of these operations are explained below.

• Air to Air (Intercepts, visual identification) • Air to Air Refuelling • Air to Ground • AWACS (ATC) • Combat Air Patrol • Formation Flights • Low Level Flights • Navigation Flights

2. Search-and-Rescue Operations
Search and Rescue or SAR Operations are responsible for the immediate search and rescue of lives in danger caused by threats and risks posed by flight, sailing, and disasters. The following activities fall under the SAR Operations category: • Fire Fighting • Medical Assistance • SAR Flight • Shipwreck Assistance

3. Special Flight Operations
SFOs include protection and security to important individuals and high value assets that must be transported as they may become a target of security threat at anytime. The following missions fall under the SO category: • Delivery Flights • Escort Flights • Police Operations • VIP Flights
