Voice of air shows flies high

Local boy Brian Emmenis has received recognition for his outstanding contribution to South African civil aviation over his 30 years in this industry.

The award was bestowed upon him by the director of Civil Aviation, Poppy Khoza.

Emmenis is passionate about aviation and broadcasting, and is the only permanent air show commentator in Africa.

Khoza said she was inspired by Emmenis and his stellar contribution to not only aviation safety, but his commitment to bring life to air shows around South Africa and his undeniable role in the industry.

He is the only person ever in the air show industry to receive such an award.

Emmenis was nominated for this honorary award by Prof. Johan Coetzee, highly respected in aviation circles worldwide.

Emmenis received the award at a glittering event during the 2019 Civil Aviation Industry Awards, which were hosted by the South African Civil Aviation Authority on 18 December at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Lynnwood, Pretoria.

Emmenis was honoured during the second annual awards ceremony.

“The fact is that behind the scenes there are thousands of individuals who carry out critical duties in order to safely and securely get passengers and goods from one point to another,” says Khoza.

“Until now, no one has ever made an effort to acknowledge the contributions of these individuals and companies across all aviation sectors in South Africa.”

When receiving the award, Emmenis commended his dedicated team of aviation and broadcast experts at Capital Sounds, which includes his wife, Beverley.

“Without the men and women behind the scenes who make up the excellent team, we would not be able to accomplish what we have,” says Emmenis.
