Rasesa, Botswana — “In light of the recent tragedy that occurred on 23 March 2019 in Rasesa, we would like to offer our deepest sympathies to all those affected by this unfortunate incident. Please note that this will not affect the WesBank Botswana International Air Show that is scheduled to take place in Rasesa on May 25, 2019,” the organisers said in a communique posted online.
The Botswana Airshow, according to the organisers is not only about having a tremendous day of fun and excitement for aviation enthusiasts all over Southern Africa but also accords help to local charities.
“All the proceeds, after accounting for all costs of presenting the event, is donated to local charities and worthy social institutions. The organisers of Botswana Airshow would like to express its gratitude to the many sponsors, benefactors, participants and the visiting public who all contribute towards making the Botswana Airshow a success for eight (8) consecutive years and we are all looking forward to welcoming everybody on 25 May at Matsieng Aerodrome for the Botswana Airshow 2019,” said the organisers this week.
Furthermore, the organisers added, “Let us all make a special effort to have great fun and excitement while knowing that proceeds go for very worthy charitable causes.” “We have witnessed this show’s popularity grow throughout the years and it is a project that is very close to us, not only because of the fun and excitement that it brings to attendees but because this is part of our giving back to society. Some of the proceeds of the event will be donated to various charities.”
The organisers noted that the Botswana Airshow also plays a pivotal role in economic diversification by promoting domestic and international tourism.
“For the various businesses, the air show offers a unique opportunity to cross promote and network with like-minded businesses. Small and medium enterprises have the opportunity to sell their products and services at the air show stalls. The more the public is exposed to these endeavours the quicker they realize opportunities that exist in the industry. For the youth, we hope that this will continue to stimulate their interest in aviation and some will even consider aviation as a critical career option.”
