About Us
ADEPT Airmotive (Pty) Ltd was established in 2003 to design, develop and manufacture of a range of powerful, lightweight and efficient General Aviation engines for the general aviation market. Operations are based at Virginia Airport, Durban, South Africa where it has its design and administration offices and development testing facility.
Solid financial support from our Private Equity partners, and technology development support from the South African Department of Science and Technology (Innovation Fund and Technology Innovation Agency) saw the project progress from concept to production ready.
During 2014 and 2015, two dynamic new entities: Airmotive Technology (Pty) Ltd and ADEPT Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd were established to facilitate the production manufacturing, market entry and commercialization of the ADEPT Airmotive engine range. During 2017, ADEPT will be bringing all the critical manufacturing and assembly processes in-house in a new 1,600 square meter (170,000 square foot) manufacturing facility. Airside activities will continue at Virginia Airport.
During the transition from a development focused entity to production and market entry, our highly competent technical team has been bolstered by the addition of dynamic team members with strategic global market experience. The company is well poised to become the next big thing in the General Aviation industry.
