U.S. Air Forces Africa, along with the Kenyan air force, are co-hosting the 9th annual African Air Chiefs Symposium in Nairobi, Kenya, Aug. 26-29, 2019. More than 40 air force delegates from 38 African countries are expected to participate in this AACS.

The AACS program serves as an opportunity to build on previous symposia, expand membership of the Association of African Air Forces, identify key challenges confronting African air chiefs, strengthen partner networks, discuss interoperable policies and procedures for personnel recovery, and share best practices for enhancing partner capability. This year’s symposium will feature various small-group sessions to foster a spirit of collaboration, a senior enlisted leader forum to reinforce the criticality of the professional enlisted force, and cultural events to strengthen the partnership between all nations involved.
