AFA’s Aerospace Warfare Symposium is a premier event for the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force and the aerospace and defense industry that supports them. A leading professional development event, it attracts Air Force officers, enlisted members, civilians, and veterans. The symposium harnesses the innovative spirit of the Air Force and Space Force with a combination of innovation-themed sessions and exhibits that highlight the next generation of air, space, and cyber power. The symposium brings together top leaders from the Air and Space Forces along with leaders from industry, academia, and government to confront the challenges facing our Air Force and Space Force now .... and in the future.

Air and Space Warfighters in Action

The AFA virtual speaker series, Air and Space Warfighters in Action, features fresh perspectives from the operational forces. Like our Capitol Hill Breakfast Series, Air and Space Warfighters in Action will feature speakers with the same caliber you have come to expect, but with greater variety. We’ll still hear the word from the top Air Force and Space Force leaders in Washington, but look for more insight from the operating forces across the nation and around the world.
