The Air & Space Power Association facilitates regular debate, primarily through our delivery of the annual Chief of the Air Staff’s Conference, held in July. This two-day event, held in London, is the most prestigious of its kind in the calendar, drawing senior air power academics, practitioners and industry leaders from around the world. In addition to this we organise the biennial Defence Space Conference held in May on behalf of the MOD.
In addition, our regular ‘Fireside Chat’ events give Air & Space Power Association corporate members the opportunity to engage with senior military officers in an informal setting. This event, at which free and frank debate is encouraged, provides a unique opportunity to discuss air power at the very highest level.
The Air & Space Power Association social calendar provides an excellent opportunity for our members to meet each other, to host important clients and to engage in debate about the air power issues of the moment. There are 3 events annually; a spring dinner, a summer dinner and our showcase event, an industry dinner in the House of Commons. Each of these events are attended by senior military and industry leaders, further providing the opportunity for our members to hear the very latest thinking in the air power domain.
Finally, members receive the benefit of a regular Air Power Association Bulletin, which brings together important Association News with articles, reports and analysis of the latest air power issues.
