Military Airlift 2017: Delivering the support required to enable movement and readiness in a cost-conscious environment

Military Airlift, taking place on the 26-28 September in London, is the leading annual airlift conference in Europe. Now in its 14th year, it will bring together even more national air forces, multinational organisations and solutions providers than ever before.

The event will explore the key solutions to the industry challenges, such as joint procurement, purchasing and upgrading to more modular platforms, air-to-air refueling, avionics upgrades and training, whilst also providing a comprehensive analysis of the latest trends and upcoming movements in the sector.

  • Air Vice-Marshal Saulo Valadares do Amaral, Commander of the III Regional Air Command, Brazilian Air Force
  • Colonel Rodney Simpson, Chief, Combat Operations, Air Mobility Command, US Air Force
