The Africa Aerospace and Defence 2012 (AAD2012) exhibition is one of the world’s premier aerospace and defence events and holds a prominent position within the aviation and defence calendar. AAD2012 exhibition will return to the Air Force Base (AFB) Waterkloof in Tshwane from 19 – 23 September 2012. The first three days of the exhibition are traditionally trade days when product launches take place, followed by two Air Show and Defence Exhibition days that are open to the public.

“AAD2012 is recognised globally as an opportunity to introduce new local and international aviation and defence products to the South African and African markets,” says Leon Dillman, show director of AAD2012. This year’s event will see twenty eight country pavilions, with Brazil, Jordan and South Korea exhibiting for the first time at AAD.

“It is going to be a truly remarkable showcase of South Africa’s capabilities in servicing, maintaining and upgrading aircraft,” Dillman says. “It is also sure to boost the local economy both in the short and long terms, through tourism spend during the show, and through the business deals that we expect to be concluded during its duration and after the event.”

The exhibition also includes a mobility demonstration track, on which land-based vehicles will be put through their paces as they tackle a challenging obstacle course over difficult terrains and water features.

A structured Youth Development Programme will introduce career opportunities in the Defence Industry learners from previously disadvantaged backgrounds over the three trade days, with these facilities being open to young people on the public days too.The exhibition will then be open to the general public on the remaining two days for the Air Show and Defence Exhibition (22 and 23 September 2012), when thousands of visitors each day will be able to view impressive static and interactive exhibitions. These will include daring aviation displays performed by local and international pilots in some of the world’s most advanced aircraft. Infantry drills will add to the excitement, with simulated conflicts displaying some of the Defence Force’s capabilities.
