2021 Virtual Aerospace Warfare Symposium

FEBRUARY 24 - 26, 2021


The Air Force Association’s (AFA) virtual Aerospace Warfare Symposium, themed, “Accelerate and Innovate: Actualizing the Need for Dominant Air and Space Forces,” was a roaring success. Held February 24-26, it drew more than 5,000 registrants, 21 mission domain hub categories, 130 distinguished speakers, and 39 panels and presentations.

AFA was pleased to host 21 of the 39 sessions live each day. Fireside chats from CSAF Gen Charles “CQ” Brown, CSO Gen John “Jay” Raymond, and Acting Secretary of the Air Force Roth were top highlights from the symposium.

AFA was excited to host Spark Tank once again. The winner of Spark Tank 2021 was Innovative Approach to C-130 Wheel Repair by MSgt Bauer of the 355th Fighter Wing. And this year’s Fan Favorite award went to the Viper Hot Refuel Kit team from Spangdahlem AB.
