We always had a thing for planes. I am bit sad to not see any new Asli Hassan Abade.

Well, an air force is no use if you have no aircraft. What are plans for SAF aircraft procurement?

“Number one is to train the people, pilots, technicians, air traffic controllers, navigators,” he said. “Then we have to have the machines.” - Gen. Sh Ali Mohamed

This is why Somalia will turned into the next Afghanistan Instead of feeding people they are focusing on pilots. Pilots for what? For who? Somalia still allows these westerners and African Union troops in the country. They can’t even defend its own people, but want to train pilots for a nonexistent Air Force. May Allah get rid of these corrupt leaders and appoint leaders who care about the people and sharia of Somalia

Turkiye offered to train our soldiers to fight against shabaab and other terror attacks killing civilians, why are u crying? You want a state without somali police & military? Why do u think these african union troops are here committing crimes against our people?? BECAUSE WE DONT HAVE A FUNCTIONING MILITARY PRESENCE.

I see where you're coming from but pilot training is paid for by turkey. We need lots more young somalis with world class military training to rebuild the military and the nation. This is a sign we're heading in the right direction. Inshalah equipment is provided for these men so they keep somalia safe and patrol its waters >want to train pilots for nonexistent Air Force. Latest generation fighter jets cost 100s of millions.. you want untrained people flying and maintaining them ? Think about what could go wrong.

The nation problem isn’t the military, it’s the politics from inside that is 99% of the problem. Kenya really isn’t shit and the west reaps their resources since they own the government I rather have people go into Turkish schools and learn about building cities, policing and agriculture than flying expensive aircraft that will need billions in funding

>I rather have people go into Turkish schools and learn about building cities, policing and agriculture than flying expensive aircraft that will need billions in funding They're all important >policing Military officer training translates well into police.

Everything is important but pilots won’t solve a single issue in Somalia. Experts in agriculture will and have their effect felt instantly. We couldn’t even probably afford to have an Air Force or offer competitive salaries for an Air Force. Focus on the greater good and not some dream where Somalia magically gets stable and becomes a wealthy nation with fighter jets Just look at Afghanistan since it’s a vary similar country. Muslim country, once was a socialist state that collapses, than followed unrest and infighting. Than westerners invaded and the government they implemented didn’t do nothing but steal and worry about military. Afghanistan had ton of pilots, but it didn’t matter. Pilots won’t help people who are dying from starvation, pilots won’t help droughts, pilots won’t stop bombing

Somalia isn't paying for the pilot training so what's the problem? You want somalia to be like "nah no thanks, we don't want free training?" It costs millions to train 1 military pilot. Our waters and borders need to be secured from illegal fishing and illegal dumping at a matter of urgency. Having an airforce that detects and responds to this is critical. Somalia is a long way from having a competitive airforce that can defend against an invader but for patrolling it's critical. Beggars can't be choosers my friend. Take whatever free training is offered. Turkey doesn't only train somali military, I've heard of scholarships awarded to somalis to study things like medicine and engineering in Turkey. Maybe you should study agriculture and do something about starvation instead of sitting here and being picky about what kind of charity training is offered to somalis. Also in that first photo I see only 2 airforce guys in blue, rest are army officers. In the other photo there's half dozen airforce guys and they could be anything from engineers, air traffic controllers, maintenance, airforce security, intelligence, etc all good skills to have.. AND ITS FREE

Stop lying, we aren’t going to be bombing ships. People keep their coasts safe with mostly radar and naval technology And nothing is free my friend, i was told that when I was young. If somebody gives something that would want something back in return, all colonist first started off with gift giving

>Stop lying, we aren’t going to be bombing ships. People keep their coasts safe with mostly radar and naval technology A helicopter or plane can intercept an illegal fishing boat in minutes and cover a massive area to support a navy (is there such thing as somali navy ?). > And nothing is free my friend, i was told that when I was young. If somebody gives something that would want something back in return, all colonist first started off with gift giving Beggars can't be choosers my friend. Somalia isn't in a position to deny charity
