Be sure not to miss this year’s Africa Aerospace and Defence Expo (AAD Expo) at AFB Waterkloof in Pretoria Accommodation, taking place on 22 and 23 September 2012. For only R50 entry fee per person, you get to enjoy the continent’s largest air, sea and land expo. This expo showcases some of the most impressive aircraft, trucks, armoured vehicles and defence vehicles in the world.

Demonstrations, flight simulators, vehicle simulators and model building are all on the cards for visitors to the exciting AAD Expo. Such experiences are perfect for families, young and old. This is a well-known and -respected event on the aviation and defence calendar, but is also ideal for the less specialised aviation and vehicle enthusiast. It gives those within the industry the ideal opportunity to showcase their premier products, equipment and services. This is a platform for new business opportunities, but also for the sheer thrill of all things land, sea and air.

Exhibitors will be coming to the AAD Expo from all over the world to appear at this one-of-a-kind event. This means that visitors will get a sneak peek into cutting-edge technology and equipment, making for a very exciting affair. Some of the most eagerly anticipated exhibits include:
