Prime Minister John Key says the Government has no plans to re-establish the combat wing of the New Zealand airforce.
The airforce strike wing was disbanded by the Labour government in 2001.
Mr Key's comments follow a report from the New Zealand Press Association about the mothballed Aermacchis training jets.
NZPA asked Defence Minister, Wayne Mapp if they would be restored. Dr Mapp said a defence white paper was looking at the process to consider that option.
But Mr Key said on Monday that was not going to happen and it is s extremely unlikely any white paper would argue that New Zealand should be keeping any jet training capability.
