Visitor's Reviews

5 Roald Le Roux Sales Executive at Dry Ice International Edition Attended : Sep, 2016

I have not missed one of the Africa Aerospace events since its inception. I am passionate about aircraft. It is a pity that the Russians did not turn up, and the Americans did not do a flying display of their C-17 and C-130

3 Sisa Njikelana E at Vega Knowledge Systems Edition Attended : Sep, 2016

There is neither sensitivity nor care about people with disabilities! I left without registering on the first day. No ramps for disabled. No map available not even in electronic form. Armscor and AMD were hospitable! Information sharing must improve!

4 Dave Kemp Owner at Westlake Aviation Edition Attended : Sep, 2016

The show was OK but I had issues with the logistics on the land side as well as the registration process and the lack of information on the AAD website.Regards,

3 Anita Mal Editor & Co-publisher at Chanakya Aerospace, Defense Edition Attended : Sep, 2016
