The countdown is on!

Summit Room 2 - Air Chiefs Conference:

Africa’s military air chiefs get a rare opportunity to meet together at the first independent Air Chiefs Conference.

Air Chiefs from across the continent will be invited to attend by the host, Major-General Charles Karamba, the Air Chief of Staff for the Rwanda Air Force, with support from the country’s Minister of Defence.

The theme of cooperation and collaboration is extended to the defence side of the aerospace business.

The Air Chiefs will share case studies of their own operations and share ideas about key issues such as anti-terrorism and homeland security; border and maritime surveillance and the options of new equipment and products particularly suited to the individual needs and budgets.

Defence manufacturers from around the world, specifically Asia, CIS, Europe and the USA as well as Africa’s own defence industry will have the opportunity to be involved in the debate and share ideas.

Key topics will include: 

  • Using ISR (Intelligence Surveillance Recce) aircraft to crack down on wildlife poaching
  • Training needs – developing facilities for fixed wing and rotary wing to support Africa’s needs
  • Tactical operational training – how collaboration could enhance African air forces skills
  • Military MRO – cost of overhauling aircraft can be a challenge. How African forces can work together to improve serviceability
  • Maritime Surveillance – Africa’s vast coastal areas and how to secure them

The full summit programme is being developed in conjunction with an advisory board and we will keep you updated on

the key speakers and the programme as they are confirmed.
