Poppy Khoza, the Director of Civil Aviation Authority, has been re-appointed to lead the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) for another five-year term. This will be her third term at the helm of the aviation regulator, with her term in office effective from 1 December 2023 until 30 November 2028.

“SACAA Board Chairperson Ernest Khosa described Khoza as an aviation trailblazer who is internationally recognized and supported. It is through her work that our South African aviation sector continues to hold a critical voice on global aviation dialogues,” said Khosa.

Khoza has extensive experience and knowledge in aviation, having first been appointed to the role in an acting capacity in October 2012 and then on a 5-year fixed term basis from December 2013. She was also the first black female DCA and the first woman globally to preside over the General Assembly at the ICAO’s 41st Assembly Session in 2022.

Under Khoza’s leadership, SACAA has achieved a number of milestones, including ten clean audits in a space of 11 years, achieving 100% implementation of the entity’s targets for eight years in a row, and steering the SACAA to perform exceptionally through several independent international audits on aviation safety and security. South Africa is the first country on the continent to surpass the 90% mark in the safety audits.

Additionally, SACAA has retained the Category 1 Status of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) assessment, has secured recognition agreements with European counterparts and the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in the aviation cargo security system, and has transformed the organization to boast 51% competent female employees and 50% female executives.

Khoza’s re-appointment was approved by Cabinet on 20 November 2023, and she has received widespread support and praise from staff, the aviation industry, and international counterparts.
