International Civil Aviation Day 2018 By Charlie Hugo

Post by admin » Thu Dec 13, 2018 7:37 am

The 2018 iteration of ICAD was held on 7 and 8 December at Nelspruit Airfield, home of the Aero Club of South Africa’s 2018 best airshow in South Africa. The event consisted of a career expo and a small airshow. The aim is to show case aviation as well as the various career opportunities in the aviation industry. All the government aviation bodies had career stands manned by staff to assist the learners with potential career choices. Little Annie, an Antonov An-2, flown by Mark and Jon-Mark Hill provided a number of very lucky learners with their first experience of flight ever. On the Saturday, the Minister of Transport attended the event and this was followed by a short airshow. The crowd were wowed and thrilled by the daring aerobatics displays by the various teams that supported the show. It is most unfortunate that the adverse weather conditions on the weekend prevented two Johannesburg teams from attending. A comprehensive report will be published in the February edition of African Pilot.
