CAASA's aim is to serve, promote, watch over, advance and mutually protect the interest of the General and Commercial Aviation industry.
CAASA's purpose is two-fold. Firstly it represents the interests of member companies and affliated Associations at local, national and regional levels.
The occasion of the 65th anniversary of the formation of the CAASA presents a worthwhile opportunity to review the origins of the Association and its development since 1944.
Prior to 1944, commercial aviation, could not be represented on the so called “Civil Air Board” as there was no stakeholder body in existence to represent the sector.
When members want to make their voices heard on the top issues affecting general aviation, CAASA can help!
You as a CAASA member can be an advocate for your company and the industry, whether by building relationships with elected board and/ or committee members, submitting comments to the Secretariat or justifying the use of CAASA to your company management.
THE mid-1970s a then new South African-based aviation magazine, World Airnews, identified the need for an aerospace exhibition in the country.
After several months of investigation into the viability of such an exhibition, World Airnews decided to launch the first in what was to become a biennial series of aviation expos in 1975.
The Commercial Aviation Association of Southern Africa (CAASA) is a non-profit organisation formed in 1944 to promote and protect the commercial interest of the general aviation industry in South African Aviation.
Our member companies include airport operators, non-scheduled operators, business aircraft operators, flying training organisations, aircraft maintenance companies and companies offering a whole range of supporting and retail services.
If you are a company trading or operating in general aviation, then you should be a member of CAASA.
