About Denel Aeronautics

Our corporation’s history dates back to 1964 when Atlas Aircraft Corporation was formed primarily to manufacture military aircraft and various avionic systems for the South African Air Force (SAA). Atlas was brought under the control of Armaments Corporation of South Africa (Armscor) in 1968. It was incorporated into Denel (PTY) Ltd in 1992 and became Denel Aviation.

Denel Aviation is the original equipment manufacturer for the Rooivalk Combat Support Helicopter, Design Authority for the Oryx Medium Transport Helicopter and the Cheetah Multirole Fighter aircraft. Denel Aviation delivers complete aviation solutions including maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) upgrades and system integration solutions, with innovation, quality and value added services, through worldwide partnerships.
