Fighter Squadron 18 is one of three Swiss Air Force squadrons equipped with the interceptor fighter Boeing F/A-18 Hornet and thus an important pillar of Switzerland’s air defence.

In times of peace, Fighter Squadron 18 fulfils its missions with Air Force Wing 11, operating from Payerne Air Base. From a tactical perspective, however, Fighter Squadron 18 is part of Air Force Wing 14, which belongs to the Air Base Command 14, stationed in Sion.
