The Air Force is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Drawing on its past experience and faithful to its established values, it is today investing a lot of effort in many fields. Firstly, operations in Asia, Africa and at home. Next, reform of the Ministry, with a reduced format, which means giving a high priority to its policy on human resources. And finally the modernisation of its equipment, with the Rafale achieving F3 standard, robotization and the phasing out of the C-160 fleet.
