The United Arab Emirates Air Force (UAEAF) is the air force of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Its predecessor was established in 1968, when the Emirates were still under British rule. Since then, it has undergone a continual reorganisation and expansion in terms of both capability and numbers of aircraft. Currently, the UAEAF has around 4,000 personnel and operates approximately 368 fixed and rotorcraft. The UAE Air Force Magazine is also titled ‘Al-Quwwat al-Jawwiyyah’. It is the official magazine of the United Arab Emirates Air Force and covers military aviation and air force and air defence matters. This gold plaque was presented to the Chairman of GEC Avionics on the occasion of visit of UAE Air Force Magazine, but the date is not currently known.
