CAA International (CAAi), part of the UK CAA International Directorate, will be exhibiting at the Aviation African 2017 conference next month in Kigali, Rwanda.

Taking place on 22-23 February, the event will focus on all aspects of the African aviation industry including MRO, Business Aviation, Defence and Commercial Aviation.

Officially supported by the Rwandan Civil Aviation Authority and RwandAir, Aviation Africa is the first major aviation event in East Africa to bring together the global aviation industry with the growing pan-African aviation sector.

By 2034, IATA predicts that the African air passenger market will grow by 4.7% and will see an extra 177 million passengers a year for a total market of 294 million passengers1. To support this growth, the UK CAA is committed supporting National Aviation Authorities (NAA’s) and industry throughout African with UK CAA best practice advice and training in an effort to build regulatory capacity and improve safety and security oversight in accordance with ICAO and EASA standards.

In 2014, CAAi provided technical assistance to CAA Botswana to help them prepare for an ICAO ICVM audit. Click here to read our case study.
