16 September 2009 – The Dubai Airshow opens its doors on 15 November, promising more exhibition space, plus innovative and technically-advanced aircraft, equipment and systems from the world’s leading players in the aerospace industry today. Running for five days, from 15 to 19 November at Airport Expo, the biennial airshow is the foremost aerospace event in the Middle East and the fastest growing in the world. With less than ten weeks to go, the Dubai Airshow has confirmed the showing of an awe-inspiring range of aircraft such as the advanced jet trainer Falcon L-15 from China-based AVIC, and a full-scale replica of the Eurofighter. In the exhibition halls, the EADS stand will showcase an array of the group’s exhibits, including two impressive full-scale mock-ups – the Airbus A350 XWB cabin, in which visitors can watch the “Shaping Efficiency” audio-visual presentation, and Eurocopter’s 16-seater civilian helicopter, the EC175. The Italian Airforce’s Frecce Tricolori and Patrouille de France aerobatic teams will display the capabilities of the Aermacchi and the Alpha Jet trainers, respectively, in the daily flying display. Alison Weller, Director of airshow organiser F&E Aerospace, expressed confidence that this year’s Dubai Airshow will spearhead the aerospace industry’s recovery, reflecting the ‘green shoots’ apparent elsewhere in the global economy. “The past year has been a difficult time for the aerospace industry worldwide, with manufacturers, suppliers and service-providers facing a bleak and uncertain future. “However, with a more bullish outlook for the coming year, especially within the Middle East region, I am cautiously optimistic that the Dubai Airshow will signal a return to a healthy marketplace and the opportunity for exhibitors and visitors alike to take advantage of the upturn.”
