ABOUT 2023 EDITION

Following the huge success of the first edition, 2nd Africa Air Force Forum returns on the 25 – 26 October 2023 in Dakar – Senegal, hosted by the Senegal Air Force.

The forum serves as a regional platform for advancing air force capabilities that will help build pillars of bilateral partnerships. The gathering will help countries with the opportunities needed to promote stability in their respective sub regions and to shape the development of air forces on the continent more broadly. With the key motive of accelerating air force superiority, the forum will host discussions on the prospects of air power in Africa, impact on internal security operations, importance of air force in counter-terror operations along with the key technology capabilities required to take advantage on every mission.

Join us at the forum, which will bring together Africa’s key Air Force Chiefs and top leadership from the region, industry experts and government officials to discuss challenges faced and the progress made by the air force communities today and for the future.

Why Senegal?

Senegal’s Air Force is currently enhancing their fleet capabilities to support regional counterinsurgency and counterterrorism operations. In addition to the transnational conflicts, Senegal will begin oil exploration in 2023 and will require extensive air support to safeguard the new offshore oil and gas assets. Due to this, the Air Force Africa Forum will reveal the Air Forces commitment to regional security through shortlisting of suppliers and providing an essential platform for Africa’s aerospace community to convene to progress coordination.

Welcome Message

Warm Greetings,

It is my honor to announce the inaugural Africa Air Force Forum hosted by the distinguished Senegal Air Force. We are proud to welcome the global aerospace community to this critical meeting of Air Force leadership as well as renowned solution providers. Under the theme “Aviation in low- intensity conflict,” we will address the evolving role air-operations play in counterinsurgency efforts as well as ways to optimize existing resources. It has become essential for the regions forces to cooperatively address methods to enhance the security landscape, hence this forum will provide the platform for Africa’s aerospace and defence stakeholders to convene, integrate and implement plans.

 

In addition to the high- level discussions and briefings, the Africa Air Force Forum will feature an international exhibition to highlight the latest equipment and solutions available to support the regions forces. Interactive, multi-disciplinary discussions and product demonstrations will further highlight this event as the premier strategic gathering of Air Forces, Aviation Authorities, Land and Naval Forces and key solution providers in Africa.

 

We sincerely look forward to the honor of welcoming you to this significant event.
