PODCAST 4: SAA crisis and private aviation challenges

The uncertainty over the future of South African Airways leads the discussions in this week's Times Aerospace podcast for the aerospace, aviation and defence industries across Africa and the Middle East.

Following on the demise of Air Mauritius which entered administration this week, Guy Leitch, editor of SA Flyer and an aviation commentator, joins the programme to give an insight into the current situation to share ideas on what could happen as the government and the unions go head to head.

Private aviation comes under the spotlight as Catherine Buchanan, chief operating officer of Vertis Aviation, explains how the private aviation charter sector is faring and what some of the current challenges are for repatriation and VIP services.

In aviation services, MRO editor Chuck Grieve takes a look at how a new market is opening up for the leasing of engine stands. With a facility in Dubai, Enginestands24, believes it can match the innovation in Europe and Asia with a service ideal for post-covid engine maintenance shops.

The programme also features the latest in news and views from across the Africa, Turkey and Middle East regions.
