Unlike the previous AFS, this year was definitely a special event because it was attended by different Air Chiefs from different countries such as; Malaysia, Brunei, Cambodia, USA, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia who also took part in joining the 14th ASEAN Air Chiefs Conference (AACC) which is set from May 02-07 2017.

The AFS is a whole day event which involves gathering of senior leaders, defense and military officials, members of the academe, defense industry partners, air-power practitioners, and others who have a stake in the country’s defense security and development.

Also, the AFS is part of the pre-anniversary activity of PAF in connection to its 70th Anniversary to be celebrated on July 3, 2017.
