  • AAD Airshow History

    First of all, let's catch on about the AAD Airshow History.

    Some history about the event: The event offered companies the opportunity to showcase their products in the indoor exhibition area. They book hospitality chalets and display their aircraft in the static aircraft park and on the public days offered members of the general public the opportunity to view an international air show. During 1998 the two trade associations – the Commercial Aviation Association of Southern Africa (CAASA) and the Aerospace, Maritime and Defence Industries Association of South (AMD) – joined in organising Aerospace Africa.

    As was said at the time, “Since the first Aviation Africa in 1975, the exhibition has undergone many changes. Most relevant from a local aero-display and trade show, operating from a small airport 22 years ago, Aviation Africa, under the auspices of the CAASA, has grown to a fully recognised international aerospace exhibition.

    They catered for all of the sub-Saharan aviation and aerospace requirements. “After AMD’s success in organising SAAF ’75 Expo, as part of the South African Air Force’s 75th-anniversary celebrations in 1995, there was a growing request for further military trade exhibits and an air show. A joint venture between CAASA and AMD was, therefore, a natural progression.”

    The name changed to Aerospace Africa, the venue to AFB Waterkloof and the amalgamation with AMD incorporated a greater military influence. This grew the number of exhibitors to 254 representing 21 countries.
