United States Air Forces in Europe – Air Forces Africa and the Tunisian Air Force are co-hosting African Partnership Flight 2022 beginning Nov. 2, 2022 in Tunis, Tunisia.

The APF will host partners from across North and West Africa, including delegations from Algeria, Chad, Ghana, Libya, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, and Senegal as well as the two co-hosts, Tunisia and the U.S. The event will focus on broadening interoperability on Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance objectives.

APF serves as opportunity to open dialogue between air force leaders across the continent, identify opportunities for the U.S. to assist African partners, and implement collective solutions. Building partnership capacity towards ISR objectives provides coalition forces the advanced capabilities to detect and defend against a spectrum of threats while promoting regional security and stability.

The U.S. Department of Defense and the Tunisian Ministry of Defense will continue to use opportunities like African Partnership Flight to share ideas and develop positive working relationships with African and international partners
