Director of Civil Aviation Ms Poppy Khoza


Every time an aircraft takes off, the lives of the people on that flight are in the hands of aviation professionals. Their dedication to their work and to the people they serve on a daily basis does both the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) and the country proud.

South Africa’s aviation safety record is the envy of the world, and therefore the SACAA saw it fit to launch the Civil Aviation Industry Awards to acknowledge and celebrate this exemplary practice by various individuals and organisations in the critical areas of aviation safety, security, transformation and innovation, among others.

We therefore encourage and invite all aviation industry professionals and
companies who qualify to enter the Award categories outlined, to submit their nominations. The Awards are your opportunity to demonstrate excellence to your peer groups and clients and to be recognised and celebrated as an industry leader by your peers and the public for your contribution towards keeping us safe in the sky.

These prestigious awards highlighting excellence among individuals, companies and many others involved in the aviation industry will be assessed by an independent panel of expert judges.
