“Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD2016) is one of the world’s premier Aerospace and Defence exhibition that holds a prominent position within the Aviation and Defence calendar. This exhibition takes place biannually in September.
Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) was born from the Aerospace Africa civilian exhibition (the roots of which lay in the original Lanseria air show in 1975) and the DEXSA military exhibition. The first in the series of aviation exhibitions, which later became known as Aviation Africa and now Africa Aerospace & Defence, took place at Lanseria Airport in October 1975. 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.
The 8th AAD will again take place at AFB Waterkloof, Centurion in the City of Tshwane, South Africa, and will once again bring together various industries from throughout the world so as to showcase the latest technological innovations within this sector.”
