Kumpulan Pengakap Udara tersebut dipercayai merupakan Kumpulan Pengakap Udara yang pertama yang ditubuhkan di Malaysia.

Kumpulan Pengakap Udara tersebut adalah bertapak di dalam Pengkalan Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia (TUDM) - WMKB. Sebelum itu, semasa Zaman Perang Dunia Kedua, lapangan terbang tersebut digunakan oleh RAF (Royal Air Force - British). Selepas Malaya mencapai kemerdekaan, lapangan terbang tersebut diserahkan kepada RAAF (Royal Australia Air Force). RAAF pada masa itu menanggung tugas dalam mengawal keselamatan udara untuk mengelakkan pencerobohan udara oleh pihak Indonesia - semasa Konfrantasi Indonesia.

Keanggotaan Pengakap Udara adalah merupakan anggota tentera RAAF dan anak-anak tentera RAAF. Mereka giat dalam aktiviti kepakaran udara dengan melibatkan aktiviti pengakap.
