Samenvatting

In the period January 2007-February 2008 I was sent out to Afghanistan as Deputy
Commander Air/Director Air Coordination Element. I worked at the International
Security Assistance Force (ISAF) X Headquarters in Kabul. ISAF is a United Nations
(UN) mandated mission led by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). The
objective of the mission is to assist the Afghan government in realising and maintaining
stability and security in Afghanistan in order to extend the authority of the Afghan
government and to create circumstances conducive to reconstruction, development and
good governance.
In this article, I would like to share with the reader my experiences in Afghanistan,
especially in the area of the deployment of the air forces. Besides, towards the end of
my article I will go into the rebuilding of the Afghan civilian aviation sector. My tour in
Afghanistan was a more than fascinating period, during which I was able to familiarise
myself with all facets of multinational operations and the many challenges and complexities
of Afghanistan.
