The Aviation Development Africa is a group of young aviators which provides a platform and facilities for the awareness of careers in aviation industry in the less represented communities. Aviation Development Africa is an Non Profit Organization led by black-young professionals in the aviation sector and was founded to overcome the legacy of apartheid which have denied the majority of South African citizens to access quality education and opportunities. Currently, black people are underrepresented in the industry with about 4% of over 17200 pilots being blacks and less than 2% black women and many more professions in this industry with low representation of black people.
This gross imbalance cannot be allowed to continue in our watch. The National Development Plan (NDP) advocates towards provision of high-quality education in languages, science and technology to all learners regardless of background. Aviation Development Africa brings the aviation industry to the people through aviation careers awareness, role models, exhibitions & expo, aviation clubs for schools and support of black aviation students among its many initiatives.
