Africa's Leading Show for General Aviation, Takes Flight 7-9 July 2022

Nov 18, 2021

AERO South Africa will open its doors in 2022 at the Wonderboom National Airport in Tswane. The live event is taking place with a full spectrum of General Aviation products, technology and services.

The three-day event will take place at Wonderboom National Airport and is supported by AERO Friedrichshafen, organisers of the largest general aviation event in Europe. The euphoria among the general aviation industry is building up as AERO South Africa invites exhibitors to be a part of the show.  

The launch event in 2019 was extremely well received by the General Aviation Sector and exhibitors are excited about the date change in the hope that the new dates will allow sufficient time for the impacts of the pandemic to settle.

“Faced with the global unpredictability around event restrictions and international travel, we believe that we made the best decision for the event. This way we can provide a platform that is safe for exhibitors, visitors and staff and encourages high participation, “says Annelie Reynolds, Show Director for AERO South Africa.

The event planned for 7-9 July 2022 will cover the full spectrum of General Aviation products, technology and services and already has commitment from some of the leading manufacturers and suppliers to the industry.

Exhibitors and visitors wishing to fly to the show will benefit from FREE landing, approach and ground handling fees, making AERO South Africa the most cost-effective General Aviation show on the continent.

Running alongside the exhibition are high-quality workshop sessions, a “Park & Sell” area, allowing private sellers the opportunity to be a part of the show and engage with potential buyers looking to purchase a pre-owned aircraft, as well as Demo flights allowing exhibitors to demonstrate aircraft first-hand to prospective buyers.

Africa’s leading show for General Aviation, AERO South Africa, presented in corporation with Messe Friedrichshafen, will take place 7-9 July 2022 at the Wonderboom National Airport, Tshwane.
