Boeing Apache Helicopter
The first production AH-64, an A-model Apache, rolled off the assembly line on 30 September 1983, and was delivered by Boeing heritage company McDonnell Douglas to the US Army in January 1984. Today, Boeing is producing and delivering AH-64E helicopters to a growing list of customers around the world. “The Apache has built an impressive legacy of success and is well-positioned to bring relevant technologies and capabilities that defence forces require today and, in the future,” said Kathleen Jolivette, Vice President of Attack Helicopter Programmes and Senior Mesa Site Executive.
Mother of all cubs
The American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother of all Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub. Whilst rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the expert hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low and slow, whilst driving performance to the extreme. Horsepower on the Legend Cub has more than doubled with MOAC and current availability of Titan engines from Continental. Up to 208 horsepower (187–195 continuous) results in remarkable take-off and landing performance on its already strengthened airframe.
Lanseria International Airport 2020
Lanseria international Airport has established itself as a niche-boutique airport, catering for both commercial and general aviation needs. The airport is a far cry from its humble beginnings as a grass airstrip 48 years ago. From welcoming dignitaries to greeting international stars, the airport has continued its upward trajectory, aiming to become South Africa’s gateway to African business and leisure travel. Over the last five years the airport has invested heavily in infrastructure projects, most notably a new tower and fire complex, new runway and recently a multi-storey parkade that has added 1000 new parking bays and a retail node which includes restaurants, car rental offices and other shopping facilities.
