The aviation show is held on 8 till 10 September. It is hosted by the Selangor state government and organised by Invest Selangor.

The event focuses on the business and general aviation industry and aims to be a networking event for the aerospace industry players.
With the aim to re-energise the aviation-related business in the region, SAS2022 is designed as a platform for all relevant stakeholders to network, dialogue, and share knowledge and offerings.
Some of the highlights of the SAS2022 include product, services and technology exhibitions, static aircraft displays, drone displays, networking sessions, numerous talks on the industry and Edu-Open Day held on September 10.
Also present at the SAS2022 was Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz. In his speech, he said that “the Government is aware of the challenges faced by the local aviation industry, and is looking into ways to help the industry address them.”
“The Government has taken note of the challenges, particularly in terms of business expansion and retention, as well as the lengthy bureaucracy that may have prevented foreign and domestic investors from doing business in Malaysia,” he was quoted as saying in his speech.
He also stressed in his speech, “Rest assured that we are working to address these issues”.
