27th Annual Air Warfare Symposium only two months away!

As asymmetric threats around the world continue to emerge, there comes pressure to defend the aerial space from potential warfare. At the same time, budgets are declining as the current war efforts wind down, and military leaders have tough choices to make. 

At AFA's 27th annual Air Warfare Symposium and Technology Exposition, expect to hear timely presentations from senior military leaders and aerospace professionals on the issues facing the aerospace community. This year’s Symposium will be held Feb. 23-24, 2011, at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Last year’s symposium included the top echelon in Air Force leadership, with Secretary of the Air Force Michael B. Donley, Chief of Staff of the Air Force General Norton A. Schwartz and Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James A. Roy leading conference addresses.

Identifying and addressing the challenges facing the aerospace community is imperative—eliciting the need for a national event to share critical information. The Air Warfare Symposium and Technology Exposition is an opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue, discussing advances in aerospace technology, the challenges that still present themselves to our national defense, and strategies to help understand the power of aerial warfare.
