Advanced High-Performance Reconnaissance Light Aircraft
The AHRLAC is Africa’s first home-grown military aircraft, and it first took off on Aug 13, 2014, in Pretoria, South Africa. What makes this plane special is that it took three years to develop and is used for anti-poaching missions, border patrols, anti-trafficking, anti-piracy, anti-insurgent, as well as anti-terror operations. This is a major milestone in the continent’s aviation history.

Please keep up the good work. It's inspiring to us
Thanks for the comment.
Good work. My only concern is, it should be controlled by Africans…
This list isn't a reflection of true African technologies, while I agree that M-Pesa and the AHLRAC need to be on the list, they should replace the others with the Rooivalk, Gautrain, Ubuntu OS and the Digital Laser. These are true African breakthroughs in technology and one of a kind projects that lead the way in Africa's tech industry!
Impressive, can I be the pilot?
