With the theme of “The One & Only Business & General Aviation Show in the Region”, SAS 2024 aims to promote regional business aviation, general aviation, as well as drone related activities. The show also serves as a platform for local companies to showcase their products and services, and provide the opportunity to attract potential investors to enhance growth and partnership.
