Defence IQ has announced that the 14th annual Military Airlift conference will be taking place in London this September. This established forum brings together leaders from the international airlift community, providing a platform for sharing ideas, discussing shared challenges and creating a marketplace for exploring airlift solutions.
Airlift is a sector of the industry in constant development; over the next ten years, more than 800 military airlifters are set to be delivered at a value of $65bn.
Research from the Joint Air Power Competency Centre, as well as many government publications has highlighted Europe's strategicairlift requirement gap; a reality which has engendered substantial commitments to increase airlift capacity from European nations.
A key theme for 2017 is the collaborative effort to deliver strategic airlift, particularly across Europe. Expert speakers will share their knowledge and experience around developing airlift capabilities that are fully aligned with their operational requirements, within cost-constrained environments, and whilst continually adapting to regulatory changes. Conference sessions will also focus on how militaries, multi-national organisations and NGO’s are best able to incorporate air-chartering, joint procurement, MRO, air-to-air refueling and pooling and sharing to improve operational airlift capability.
Military Airlift 2017 is therefore the essential platform for our industry, featuring comprehensive discussions and executive level presentations.
