December 6-7, 2010 - Vienna, Austria
This event has already taken place.
This page shows historical information on the Military Airlift 2010, held on December 6-7, 2010.
SMi proudly presents its 6th annual Military Airlift: Rapid Reaction and Tanker Operations conference. Taking place in the first week of December and following on from sell-out events in Rome in 2007, Seville in 2008 and Frankfurt in 2009, Military Airlift 2010 will once again bring together an impressive line up of senior military officers, key policy makers, leading aircraft manufacture and airlift charter companies.
This year the conference will feature a special focus on airlift operations ranging from recent humanitarian engagements in Haiti to tactical airlift in Afghanistan. Attend the conference and hear the latest from EU and NATO airlift agencies on their efforts to achieve greater levels of collaboration and cooperation.
Incorporating a tanker theme, the conference will also feature case studies from MRTT and tanker pilots currently active in Afghanistan, as well as an impartial update on the USAF KC-X programme.
Discuss these issues and more with the people you want to meet from the airlift community.
On the morning of the 8th December delegates will have the opportunity to visit Papa Air Base, Hungary.
In November 2007 Papa was selected to host 3 NATO C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft, now under the operational command of the newly established Heavy Airlift Wing (HAW). Papa Air Base is located close to the Northern edge of the Bakony Hills in Veszprem County, Hungary. Launched in 2009, the HAW is an integral part of the Strategic Airlift Consortium (SAC), created in September 2006 to serve the strategic airlift requirements of members, in addition to fulfilling a support role for a variety of NATO, EU and UN missions.
The Site visit will include lunch, a full interactive tour of the base and any C-17's in the nest, as well as presentations by:
Colonel Miklos Domonkos, Base Commander
Colonel John Zazworsky, Commander, Heavy Airlift Wing, USAF
László Szarvas, Deputy General Manager, NATO Airlift Management Agency
The Site Visit is free to all delegates. Coach transport will be available; numbers are limited.
* Subject to final confirmation
Military Airlift: Rapid Reaction and Tanker Operations 2010 will be busy and vibrant. With a number of exhibition opportunities, Military Airlift is the perfect platform for companies to showcase their products and services to delegates and speakers. Meet with senior industry suppliers to get ideas and contacts and see how their latest products can enhance your airlift capabilities.
No matter how good the advance literature is, you never know how relevant these events are until you get there. This one was relevant to my interest & very well put together with a high class of presenter. Thanks!
Looking forward to next year!
