    SAA states it is ahead of plan in terms of trading performance

    Embattled State-owned national carrier South African Airways affirmed in a press release on Wednesday that its turnaround strategy was “on track”. It reported that its results for the first quarter indicated that it was “ahead of the plan in its trading performance”. But the release did not give the first quarter results.

    The company reaffirmed that it would not be able to reach break-even until 2021. However, it was continuing to drive down costs and increase its revenues. It assured that it could draw on the required financial facilities to support its working capital needs.

    “The airline has made some headway in the implementation of its turnaround plan to transform SAA into a commercially viable entity, which must have the ability to sustain itself financially and remain competitive operationally,” stated the press release. “No decisions have been taken to dispose of any SAA entities or assets at this stage. Options were merely presented to the Board [at a strategy session earlier this month] for consideration.”

    Air traffic control undergoing a digital revolution

    The dramatic advances in information and communications technology, electro-optical technologies and digitalisation have enabled a revolution to take place in terms of airport air (and ground) traffic control. This was highlighted in a briefing at the Africa Aerospace and Defence 2018 exhibition by Saab VP: Civil Security (Middle East and North Africa region) David Shomar. Saab had played a leading – in some cases the leading – role in these developments. He pointed out that remotely-controlled digital air traffic control (ATC) was now operational in Sweden, the Republic of Ireland and in the State of Virginia in the US.

    South African A-Darter guided missile test programme successfully concluded

    South African State-owned defence industrial group Denel announced on Monday the successful completion of the guided missile qualification test series for the A-Darter infrared (IR) homing short range air-to-air missile system. The A-Darter is a fifth generation missile that uses an imaging IR seeker system.

    The weapon was conceived in South Africa and jointly developed by South Africa and Brazil, with the programme being led by Denel Dynamics, Denel’s missile, unmanned air vehicle and space technology operation. It will be employed by both the South African Air Force and the Brazilian Air Force.

    The qualification test series involved four guided launches, all against Skua high-speed target drones (another Denel Dynamics product). Each launch demonstrated a different air combat manoeuvre scenario. As a result, the A-Darter’s full performance was successfully demonstrated. The entire test series was conducted at Denel’s Overberg Test Range, on the south coast in the Western Cape province.

    Glider reaches unprecedented altitudes in experimental programme

    In just eight days during late August and early September, Airbus’ Perlan 2 glider set three new world altitude records for a glider. Moreover, during the third of these flights, it reached an altitude that has been exceeded in level flight by only two other types of aircraft. These flights were all executed as part of the Europe-based global aerospace group’s Perlan Mission II programme and resulted in the acquisition of key information on flight performance, weather and the atmosphere.
