Aerosud is an aeronautical engineering and manufacturing company, formed in 1990 by the then key designers of the South African Denel  Rooivalk attack helicopter, together with similar leaders from the Atlas Cheetah fighter program and the Product Support Environment.

Aerosud has been instrumental is supporting our restoration efforts, they manufactured missing aircraft panels for the SAAF museums Mirage 3 aircrafts as well as the Mirage F1 CZ/AZ on static display.
