Military Airlift: Rapid Reaction & Tanker Operations

SMi’s Military Airlift: Rapid Reaction & Tanker Operations conference will be held on 6-7 December 2010.

Following on from our sell-out events in Seville in 2008 and Frankfurt in 2009, the conference programme will expand on the theme of airlift and rapid reaction, addressing additional topics such as MRTT and tankers.

Bringing together senior policy and decision makers, Military Airlift: Rapid Reaction & Operations will examine key issues, including attempts to harmonise cross-border airlift operations and airlift delivery coordination. Join us for a special concurrent stream examining recent airlift operations in Haiti and Afghanistan.

Key topics include:

• Overviews of country-specific airlift capabilities
• Updates from NATO and EU airlift coordination agencies
• Case studies on the latest Humanitarian Airlift Operations
• Airlift Challenges in Afghanistan
• NATO and US Procurement Plans
• MRTT fleet replacement

Free site visit – Papa Air Base

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.
