The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Air Force & Air Defence (UAF) is based in Abu Dhabi.

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (UAE) (AL IMARAT AL-ARABIYA AL-MUTTAHIDA): POPULATION: 3.5 MILLION. A FEDERATION OF 7 SHEIKDOMS, UNDER BRITISH PROTECTION UNTIL 1971, THE (UAE) HAS ROCKETED IN A GENERATION FROM RURAL AND POOR, TO URBAN AND OIL-RICH. THE MEMBER STATES ARE ABU DHABI, AJMAN, DUBAI, FUJAIRAH, RAS-AL-KHAIMAH, SHARJAH, & UMM-AL-QIWAIN. A FAVORITE DESTINATION FOR TOURISTS TO THE ARABIAN PENINSULAR, THE (UAE) IS NOTABLE FOR ITS LARGE POPULATION OF GUEST EX-PATRIOT WORKERS, MANY FROM INDIA AND PAKISTAN, AND ITS GENERALLY PROGRESSIVE ATTITUDE TOWARD WOMEN. THE (UAE) COVERS AN AREA OF 83,600 SQ KM AND ITS CAPITAL CITY IS ABU DHABI. THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE IS ARABIC.

June 2011: Boeing [TBC] delivered a second C-17 Globemaster III airlifter to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Air Force & Air Defence (UAF) at the C-17 program’s final assembly facility in Long Beach, California, USA. (TBC) is contracted to deliver a total of six C-17s to (UAF) — four this year and two in 2012.

The C-17 is the only airplane capable of performing all of the (UAE)’s airlift requirements — strategic and tactical, military and humanitarian, brigade airdrop and aeromedical evacuation — using either standard runways or short, austere airfields. The C-17 can transport large payloads across vast ranges without refueling and operate in extremely hot and cold climates. With a full payload of 170,000 pounds, a C-17 can fly 2,400 nautical miles and land in 3,000 feet or less.

As a member of the worldwide C-17 “virtual fleet,” (UAF)’s C-17s will be supported through Boeing’s C-17 Globemaster III Sustainment Partnership, a proven multinational Performance-Based Logistics program. Through the virtual fleet concept, C-17 customers receive comprehensive worldwide logistics support (spares, support equipment, Tech Orders, sustaining Engineering, and on-site field teams) through use of shared resources across the entire fleet. This highly successful program ensures high levels of mission readiness by providing all C-17 customers — regardless of fleet size — cost-effective access to an extensive support program.
