A Change to Saturday’s Lineup and an aircraft of R800 000 being given away to one lucky ticket holder at the Durban Airshow!

On Saturday 13th July 2013, one lucky ticket holder will be the proud owner of an R800 000 aircraft and full pilot’s licence course. According to veteran airshow commentator and KZN Winter Air Tour Organiser, Brian Emmenis, apart from the incredible prize that a spectator will win on the day – there is also going to be no less than 3 world champions flying and the only South African to ever fly a display at OSHKOSH in the United States will also be participating in this year’s show. “It’s going to be an action-packed programme from the minute we start until we finish. During the day Miss South Africa and I will be giving away an aircraft and full pilot’s licence course to one lucky ticketholder which is valued at just under R1 million”, exclaimed Emmenis. Tickets for the competition will available at the Reach for A Dream Aircraft Raffle.

The Boeing 737-200 will no longer be flying at this year’s Durban Airshow due to unforeseen circumstances, however, KZN Winter Air Tour Organisers have replaced the Boeing with an exciting new addition – the CRJ provided by SA Express.
