Air Force is a large body of the military, while air guard is just a unit under the Air Force. In the United States, the Air Force is the major body that handles the warfare service, while air guard is just a reserve team. The Air Force is engaged full time, while the air guard is only found involved on a part-time basis. The commander in chief in of the Air Force is the president of a country, while the commander in chief of the air guard is the governor of a state.

The various personnel involved in the Air Force are trained and equipped to sustain the defensive and offensive operation of the air operation. The air guard personnel are only called upon on a few bases when there are occurrences of hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, and floods. Air guard was formed in the year 1916 as a section of the New York air guard. In 1947, the two bodies separated as unique sections.

Air Guard and Air Force are correlated to the air space of the United States. Air Guard is part of the larger Air Force wing. Both the forces have many similarities, but the Air Force has a more significant role to play in the country's security. The Air Force is the first aerial warfare service of the United States. One of the primary purposes of the Air Guard is to serve as a reserve or back up to the Air Force. The Air Force is full time, while the Air Guard is part-time.

The state governor is the Commander in Chief of the Air Force, and Air Force personnel are trained and equipped for continuous offensive and defensive air performance. The Air Guard is used at times of domestic emergencies and disasters such as hurricanes, fires, floods, and earthquakes. Also, unlike the Air Force, the Air Guard is organized on a state and territorial basis.

Both the Air Guard and the Air Force are part of the military, but the Air Guard is actually part of the Air Force. It is a subcategory of the Air Force. If you are in the Air Force, then this is probably your full-time job whereas if you are in the Air Guard, then it may be your part-time job. When it comes to the Air Guard, the state governor is in charge of it.

When it comes to Air Force, the president is in charge of the Air Force because he is considered to be the commander in chief. Whenever there is a problem within the country like a natural disaster, then the Air Guard is called. If there is something that happens internationally, that is a problem with the country, then the Air Force is called.
