The African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA) has announced its roster of keynote speakers for its inaugural AfBAA African Business & General Aviation Conference & Exhibition to be held from Monday, 28th to Wednesday, 30th January, 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya.

 

The conference will be receiving several African aviation leaders such as Capt Gilbert Kibe, Director General, Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA), Mr Aslam Khan, Founder & Chairman, ALS, Kenya, Dr Jim Belemu, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Mahogany Air, Zambia and  Abderahmane Berthé, Secretary General of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA).

The AfBAA Conference will be the Association’s first meeting focusing on the challenges and opportunities of flight operations in the aviation hub of East Africa and will shine a spotlight on both business and general aviation.

“We are delighted with the positive response by the African and international aviation industry to this new AfBAA initiative,” says Nick Fadugba, the new Chairman of AfBAA.  “In addition to meeting the needs of its members, AfBAA is firmly committed to seeking the support of Governments and civil aviation authorities for business and general aviation in Africa.”

The two-day conference will feature keynote speakers as well as focused workshops discussing the needs of business jet and turboprop aircraft operators in Africa.  The variety of missions and large spectrum of aircraft serving the business, humanitarian, tourism, medevac, agricultural, and industrial sectors in East Africa will be closely examined.  The symposium will aim to build a platform from which smaller suppliers and operators can interact with local, regional and international colleagues.  Each session will address specific topics, and attendees will be encouraged to debate and discuss relevant issues currently affecting those operating in the sectors.

The Conference will include a tour of Wilson Airport, Nairobi, one of Africa’s busiest airports, and will end with a cocktail reception at the famous Aero Club of East Africa, which has been supporting aviation in the region since 1927.
