AFA’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference Recap

Over 12,000 attendees were treated to three days of informative speaker sessions and more than 149 exhibitor booths at AFA's 2019 Air, Space & Cyber Conference. The conference was themed “Expanding the Competitive Edge." Check out audio recordings, videos, program guide, and photos of the 2019 conference and explore in-depth coverage by Air Force Magazine.

More than 90 distinguished speakers participated in 28 panels and presentations, including a “fireside chat” between Sir Richard Branson, Founder, Virgin Group and former Air Force Secretary Whit Peters, Chairman of AFA's Board of Directors

Acting Air Force Secretary Matt Donovan officially named the Boeing-built T-X advanced trainer T-7A “Red Hawk” during his remarks at the conference. The name honors the Tuskegee Airmen—known as the “Red Tails”—as well as the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, which the unit flew in their early WWII deployment to Europe. Donovan was joined by three Tuskegee Airmen for the announcement.
