Bench through AviaDev sponsored 10 young Rwandans who have been part of the AviaDev team in 2017. Spearheaded by Benjamin Tuyisabe, an IATA graduate in airport operations, the team was actively involved in the conference as they aim to realise their dreams to be the next generation of African aviators. The aviation industry in Africa is due to treble in size over the next 20 years; qualified and enthusiastic young people are what is required to ensure this growth is achievable.

Bench is proud to be playing a part in helping these individuals realise their dreams.
