African Business Aviation Association selects Hadid International Services as penultimate Founding Member
The African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA) announced ahead of this year’s Middle Eastern Business Aviation convention (MEBA 2012,) that Hadid International Services has been selected as the penultimate Founding Member of the recently launched Association. This brings the number of Founding Members who have demonstrated fully funded commitment to the organisation to 19 in total. AfBAA is now working to establish who will be invited to join as the Final Founding member and anticipates the concluding selection, and closure of this significant category, by the end of the year. The selection of Hadid International Services follows hard on the heels of AfBAA’s NBAA announcement that it has launched three new membership categories which have been tailored to encourage membership applications from the full spectrum of aviation business. Any commercial enterprise that owns or operates a General Aviation aircraft in Africa can join with “Operator Membership”; whilst the “Supplier Membership” is designed for those that provide goods and services to the industry. Both categories include voting rights at the Association’s annual general meeting. For those that do not fulfill either of the previous criteria the Affiliate Membership enables any entity with an abiding interest in Business Aviation within the region to join, but does not include voting rights.
