TATV NEWSROUND - March 18: Aerospace highlights for Africa, Middle East & South Asia

Posted 18 March 2021 · Add Comment

In South Africa, it's not a case of 'Blackhawk down', but more 'Blackhawk up and working'. The legendary Sikorsky battle-proven military helicopter is operating as a utility aircraft in fighting the wildfires among the Western Cape winelands.

In a special report we share some spectacular footage of the ‘hawk in action and talk to the team at Leading Edge Aviation about the operation.

Emirates Airline president Sir Tim Clark drew a metaphorical line in the sand with regard to acceptance of new aircraft. In a no-holds-barred interview with The Air Current founder, legendary aviation journalist Jon Ostower, Sir Tim said he would not accept aircraft that are not 100% ready to meet the airline’s needs. The interview reverberated not just through Seattle but right through the supply chain. We talk to Jon Ostrower about the ramifications of that.
 
Zambia’s aviation scene had been in turmoil before Covid – and certainly during the pandemic. But the Director General of the country’s civil aviation authority, Gabriel Lesa, joins us to talk about the plans for the revival of a national carrier; the opportunity for existing private carriers and the progress made with infrastructure and oversight resulting in the country being lifted out of the EU banned list.
 
This plus all the news headlines from across the regions.
