Welcome to AeSSA

Newsletter June 2016

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF AESSA 
 
Members of the AeSSa and all other aerospace friends - 
In our June newsletter, we introduce a new AeSSA corporate affiliate: Pretoria Boys High School. This article forms part of our series on #AerospacePeople: Movers and Shakers in the South African aerospace domain. 
 
We include two articles that focus on interactions with the youth as part of our outreach activities. The first describes the annual aircraft display preparation project at the SAAF Museum, which is led by David Toma, a Council member. The second article looks at the AeSSA participation in the career day held in conjunction with the Wonderboom Adrenaline Show. 
 
Planning for the forthcoming International Aerospace Symposium of South Africa from 20 to 21 October 2016 at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Pretoria, South Africa, continues. In this newsletter, we introduce one of our keynote speakers, Karl-Rein Weston of Boeing, who will deliver the Alan Nurick Rotorcraft Lecture. Please visit www.iassa.org.za where updates and developments are posted regularly. 
 
The theme of IASSA2016 is “Aerospace: 150 Years of progress". In keeping with this theme, we introduce you to the National Aerospace Library‟s heritage website which contains some of the historical highlights of the collection.
