Dear Aviators from Africa and across the world
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Cape Town and AviaDev Africa at the end of the month.

The weather can be cool in Cape Town at this time of year, so please do pack warm clothing and a rain jacket in case!
Please also be aware that the wearing of masks is still mandatory in South Africa so please bring a mask with you and comply with the local regulations.
