SMi Group are proud to announce that the 20th annual Military Airlift and Air-to-Air Refuelling conference and exhibition will return this December to Lisbon, Portugal, where key upgrade programmes for the C-27J and C-130J are underway.



As strategic and heavy airlift continues to drive expeditionary capability – the market capitalisation of this mission critical sector continues to grow. Delivering ‘boots on the ground’, as well as materiel, cargo and humanitarian relief remains a fundamental capability for modern air forces.



With the Airbus A400M programme developing within Europe at pace, Lockheed expanding their market capitalisation within the US through the C-5 and C-17, and Embraer breaking into the sector with a new joint venture to challenge the traditional players – this is a critical time in the industry.



Similarly, the growing use of commercial providers to deliver MRO and other services has grown as the outsourcing of these expensive sovereign assets becomes a priority for many fledging and established forces.



With unparalleled networking opportunities, the Military Airlift and Air-Air Refuelling conference remains a key calendar date for anyone involved in air mobility!
