Denel Ubuntu Educational Day

The 6 th annual Newcastle Airshow will once again this year present Grade 11 pupils with an opportunity to visit the show free of charge, and get a little VIP treatment along the way.

Denel Aviation has been a partner of the Newcastle Airshow for the past fve years and made a decision to become involved yet again this year by becoming the title sponsor of the Ubuntu Educational Day.

Invited maths and science pupils from all over Northern Kwazulu-Natal will be bussed in to the Newcastle Airport, arriving at 8am.

They will then receive coffee and refreshments before their VIP experience kicks off.

Hosted inside the Ni-Da hanger, the pupils will be treated to talks from many of the co-sponsors, namely the Civil Aviation Authority, the South African Air Forcem Denel Aviation and Vodacom will each spend 20 minutes telling them more about aviation, careers and some interesting details about the world of aviation.

The Silver Falcons will also spend time with the pupils before receiving lunch and the opportunity to simply relax and enjoy the airshow.

‘This is a golden opportunity to experience aviation at its best,’ said MD for organisers Champ Marketing, Johan Pieters.

‘Major General Wiseman Mbambo of the SAAF has a five-year plan with the Newcastle Airshow and together we hope that within that timeframe, at least one of the Ubuntu pupils will become a pilot.’

Dreams can become reality at the Newcastle Airshow, with the Denel Ubuntu Educational Dat to be for Grade 11 pupils.

There are only 700 spots available for pupils, who must take maths and science, to partake.
