About this Course
The origins of the Ethiopian Air Force has been traced to (then Ras) Haile Selassie witnessing a show of the BritishRoyal Air Force in November 1922, in Aden. Having never seen an airplane before, he was captivated by this demonstration of their power and abilities, and spontaneously asked if he could go up in one of the biplanes, proclaiming that it was “very fitting that he, as regent of Abyssinia should be the first Abyssinian to take flight in an aeroplane.
