Comment(s):

The Albanian Air Force doesn't operate fighter aircraft. Albanian airspace is secured through the NATO air policing mission. NATO's Combined Air Operations Centre at Torrejon, Spain will initiate the launch of either Greek or Italian Air Force aircraft.
Note: before joining NATO the Albanian Air Force operated aircraft and helicopters build by the Soviet Union or China. These aircraft were all withdrawn from service. The Air Force currently operates a mix of new build helicopters as well as helicopters acquired from other NATO countries.

Bell 205 (AB.205) and Bell 206 (AB.206):

Acquired from the Italian army.

AS532AL Cougar:

Airbus helicopters (at the time of the contract Eurocopter) received a contract to deliver five Cougars in 2010.

BO-105M:

Acquired from the German army.
