Highlights from Aero Friedrichshafen

Last month’s Aero Friedrichshafen was a huge success and we were delighted to see so many of you at the show. One of the highlights was of course having Martin Šonka, the current Red Bull Air Race World Champion, join us on our stand. If you missed him at Aero Friedrichshafen though, you can still be in with a chance of meeting him on our stand at next month’s EBACE in Geneva. 

We’d also like to congratulate the lucky winners of our prize draw at Aero Friedrichshafen to win tickets to the Hungarian Red Bull Air Race in July!

East London Airport debuts Airfield Automation 

On 10 April we celebrated the roll out of our Airfield Automation technology at locations across Southern Africa, with an official launch event at East London Airport (ELS/ FAEL). 

As the first African location where we have installed the technology, East London Airport proved a fitting host for the launch celebrations. We were delighted with the turnout which included various external stakeholders, including Airports Company South Africa, as well as general aviation and commercial airline customers.

Expanding our presence in Asia

Last month saw us attending the Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (ABACE) in Shanghai, China. 

Thousands of business aviation professionals from Asia and beyond attended the exhibition, which offers a great networking platform. And as we continue to grow our presence in Asia, we were delighted to have the opportunity to interact with so many new and existing customers.

Meet Martin Šonka, the reigning Red Bull Air Race champion, at EBACE

We’re excited to be on stand C21 at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) this year from 21-23 May at the Palexpo in Geneva. Also on our stand are RocketRoute, GlobeAir, Lydd Airport and Vienna Aircraft Handling.

Tuesday 21 May is looking to be an action packed day with Thorbjorn Larrson, CEO, Air BP Norway AS, participating in a panel discussion on Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuel (SAJF). Visitors will also get to meet Martin Šonka, current Red Bull Air Race World Champion and try their luck at beating him at the Red Bull Air Race game. He will also be at our drinks reception from 4:30-6pm.

Throughout the show our team will be available on our stand to update you on all our latest developments, so we look forward to seeing you in Geneva!
