The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is gearing up to commemorate its 60 years of unwavering service and dedication to defending Nigeria’s territorial integrity. Under the theme, ‘Nigerian Air Force at 60: Leveraging Strategic Partnerships in Aerospace Innovations for Regional Security,’ a series of activities are scheduled to take place from May 14 to May 25, 2024.

The highlight of the celebration will be a two-day International Conference and Exhibition, coinciding with the Third Edition of the African Air Forces Forum, slated for May 23-24, 2024, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja. The event will witness the participation of Chiefs of Air Staff from various countries, key figures in the defense, aviation, and aerospace sectors, alongside other stakeholders, fostering dialogue and collaboration aimed at advancing aviation capabilities across the continent.

The pinnacle of the anniversary festivities will be the Ceremonial Parade and Aerial Display at the NAF Base in Kaduna on May 25, 2024. This event will pay special tribute to NAF’s fallen heroes, honor surviving veterans, and underscore the force’s steadfast commitment to serving the nation.

In addition to these main events, attendees can look forward to engaging activities such as a Research & Development competition, medical outreaches, combat sports competitions, and a flying-out parade honoring recently retired senior NAF officers.

To ensure that the celebrations meet international standards while optimizing costs, the NAF is collaborating with esteemed partners and sponsors both locally and internationally. This support underscores a shared commitment to honoring NAF’s legacy and shaping a brighter future for Nigeria’s defense and aviation industry, extending to Africa and beyond.

As the NAF embarks on this milestone celebration, the nation and the global community are invited to join in commemorating 60 years of unwavering dedication, perseverance, and valor in service to the Nigerian people.
