The Prekovi Air Forces (Prekovi: Příské vzdušné síly), often simply called the PVS, are one of the three major branches of the Prekovi Armed Forces. The PVS is responsible for supporting the Prekovi Army, establishing air superiority, launching and maintaining satellites, and managing Prekonate's nuclear deterrent. It is the smallest of Prekonate's three service branches, but receives the proportionately largest amount of funding.

The PVS is comprised of 450,725 personnel, 145 SS-18 intercontinental ballistic missiles, and more than 4,300 aircraft. It shares the role of air defense with the Republic of Prekonate Navy, which operates maritime patrol aircraft and the bulk of Prekonate's interceptors.
