The air base command levels are the combat assets of the SD. An airbase commander has authority over all units stationed on his base. Depending on the units tasks this means that he is responsible for approximately 500 to 2,500 personnel. Flying activity in Varkana is carried out by a network of bases, platforms and Varkan air defense radar systems. It is supported by bases, which are supervised and maintained by staff, centers of operations, warehouses, workshops, and schools. Both in Varkana and Svaneti, bases have almost similar infrastructure to provide standardized support. This operational mode allows fast and easy creation of air bases outside Varkana if need be.
There are currently 15 air bases operated by the SD with SDB Bolshaya and SDB Kisha both located in neighboring Svaneti. SDB Yelabuzha is the largest base with 2,500 personnel and 100 stationed aircraft. Air bases may not house all fighter, refueling or transport planes: several radar bases (SDB Kulata and SDB Sighnaghi) are for territorial surveillance (air defense) and military air traffic control. Others welcome warehouse equipment or command posts. SDB Martuni houses the SD's headquarters and the air force training school, including 80 trainer aircraft, as well as being the most central radar base in the country.
