“One of our major goals is to engage members across the industry spectrum to showcase the many contributions and achievements of regional women to the industry, We are dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation career fields and interests”, said WAI-ME’s President, Ms Mervat Sultan. “The Air Expo Africa is a great platform for us to highlight female role models across the African Continent”, she added.
The Air Expo Africa 2024 is the 1st International Aviation Exhibition and Convention for Africa bringing together aviation and aerospace industry leaders as well as seasoned professionals to engage and to interact with aviation enthusiasts, customers and students to network, exchange ideas and showcase the latest thinking, developments, technology and equipment in general aviation.

Mobeen Motara, on behalf of Air Expo. “South Africa and Africa are driving strategic policies directed at creating an enabling environment for women to take up leadership roles in the Aviation and Aerospace industries.
