APRIL 2017
April. The month employers hate but employees love due to the vast majority of public holidays in the month. If you are using these days to your advantage to take time off for yourself or together with your family have a wonderful and safe travel time.

It is also the perfect time to leave your aircraft with us for that long awaited panel upgrade. Give our sales team a call and they can quote you on your requirement of avionics.

From our side, enjoy reading our April edition. If you have any suggestions or ideas to contribute please send them to me at

The weekend of 10-12 March the Aero Club of South-Africa staged its annual Air Weekend at Parys, which was superbly organised. More than 120 aircraft arrived including gyro-copters, aerobatics types, powered paragliders, microlights, gliders, light sport aircraft, helicopters, vintage and veteran aircraft and so many more! It was Century Avionics' privilege to attend this wonderful event and our team had a full day of clients visiting our stand. Century Avionics will most definitely be back again next year.
