  • How African nations have taken the lead on UN-backed peacekeeping missions in the region and what this means for logistical demands on military forces

  • Exploiting both commercial and military airlift capability and roadmap for an African led airlift exercise
  • Training plans for utilisation of effective C2 within African-led airlift operations

As the largest bespoke military airlift conference in Europe, this event will offer an unrivalled platform for defence forces to hear from some of the world’s leading airlift operators and manufacturers.

This year’s conference will cover: forward basing and expeditionary operations, international operability, training, airlift platform acquisition, air-to-air refuelling, medevac, pooling and sharing, tactical, humanitarian and strategic airlift, and much more.
