Basic Air Power Seminar


The purpose of the Basic Air Power Seminar (BAPS) is to provide Air Force personnel with an introduction or refresher on the basics of air power - the stuff all airmen should know.

APDC Education Section provides air power instruction over one or one and a half days at your location. Main themes of the instruction include air power history, doctrine and strategic overview and professional mastery.

The one and a half day version culminates in a number of activities and a case study designed to develop understanding of how air power doctrine is employed in different scenarios.

The BAPS can also be tailored to meet a unit’s specific needs. Unlike all other APDC courses, BAPS is not PMKeyS reportable.

Travel funding may be required for seminars conducted outside of Canberra.
