2nd Africa Air Force Forum to focus on adapting capabilities for modern conflicts

The Senegalese Air Force will be hosting the 2nd Africa Air Force Forum, a pivotal gathering of Air Force Chiefs of Staff, aerospace industry leaders, and government officials.

Under the theme “Adapting Air Force Capabilities and Drone Deployment to Combat Modern Conflicts,” the forum aims to address the evolving security challenges in an increasingly complex global landscape. It serves as a platform for high-level discussions, international exhibitions, and live demonstrations, focusing on the advancement of air force capabilities and the role of drones in modern warfare.

Brigadier General Papa Souleymane Sarr, Chief of Staff, Senegalese Air Force said, “In these complex times, where the nature of threats is ever-changing, the 2nd Africa Air Force Forum serves as a beacon of collaboration and innovation. We gather here in Dakar to not just adapt but to evolve, forging a collective defence that is agile, robust, and ready for the challenges of tomorrow. Together, we will shape a future where our Air Forces are not just reactive but proactive, ensuring stability and security across our great continent.”

Senegal is at the forefront of enhancing its air force capabilities to support regional counterinsurgency and upcoming oil exploration activities. The forum will showcase Senegal’s commitment to regional security and provide a platform for Africa’s aerospace community to convene and coordinate.

The forum will be held in Dakar, Senegal, from October 25th to 26th, 2023.
