Yelahanka: The Indian Air Force will be hosting a Chiefs of Air Staff (CAS) Conclave on 3 and 4 February at the Air Force Station Yelahanka. The conclave is a unique one where the Chiefs of Air Staff from various countries like Japan, Israel, USAF, Australia and others, are expected to brainstorm and synergize their thoughts on current issues related to aerospace power strategy and technological developments.
In view of the COVID-19 situation, the conclave has been planned in a hybrid format with extensive use of digital media. The conclave was inaugurated by defence minister Rajnath Singh on 3 December last year at the Air Force Station Yelahanka. With the growing need for nations to join hands in maintaining peace and harmony world over, the Air Chiefs conclave will provide the much-needed platform to discuss issues related to military aviation, space operations and aerospace strategy apart from giving them opportunities to learn about each other's best practices.
The conclave is also a perfect example of India's defence cooperation with other countries working as a diplomatic instrument, giving an opportunity for building bridges of friendship, mutual trust and capacities on a global basis. Promoting transparency in defence cooperation and building areas of common interests in military aviation will be the core focus area for the CAS Conclave.
