Who We Are
The Centurion Aerospace Village (CAV) is an initiative of the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) in developing a sustainable Industrial Supplier Park to support South Africa as a Global Player in the Aerospace and Defence Industries’ value chains thereby attracting foreign & domestic direct investment in the CAV.
CAV is an intended Hi-Tech Advanced Manufacturing Cluster with maintenance, repair, overhaul (MRO), innovation and R&D capabilities aimed at attracting and retaining key industry leaders as anchor tenants and service providers.
The aerospace and defence industries have always been important contributors to the national, Gauteng provincial and local Tshwane economies. CAV supports the industries through economies of scale and agglomeration, improved processes, increased productivity and cost competitiveness of local manufacturers. Facilities and services would promote, develop and mentor SMEs & B-BBEEs, create business opportunities in the area and benefit communities by supporting job creation and strengthening the industries in general.

The Mission of the Centurion Aerospace Village is to support the achievement of a sustainable Aerospace and Defence Industry, to attract small and new entrants and to contribute to making South Africa a global player in the Aerospace and Defence Industries’ value chains.
