Air Power: Now and the Future (1)

29 September 2016 - 30 September 2016

Royal Air Force Museum / Royal Aeronautical Society


"Air power has offered the UK tremendous utility over the last 100 years; I do not see that changing, in fact, I think it is only going to increase further". Air Chief Marshal Sir Andrew Pulford, Chief of the Air Staff, Royal Air Force, 17 September 2015

Delivered at the  Defence  and  Security  Equipment  International conference,  these words suggest that air power has a positive future as we continue to move into the 21st Century. However, what challenges will air forces face in an era of austerity and changing geo-strategic priorities?

The aim of this two-day conference, organised by the Royal Air Force Museum and the Royal Aeronautical Society, is to answer this question and others related to the future of air power. The conference seeks to bring together in one forum leading air power practitioners and academics, and wider Service, governmental and industry parties interested in the future utility of air power.
