The static display at the Dubai Airshow will feature over 160 of the latest commercial, business and military aircraft when the show opens on 12 November.

With many coming from around the world in addition to those from the UAE, exhibitors and visitors alike can see the best that the aerospace industry has to offer at the DWC, Dubai Airshow Site.

Military might on display will include SU35, Dassault Rafale, the Taqnia/Antonov AN-132, the IOMAX S2R-T660 Archangel and a PAC JF-17 Thunder. In addition, helicopters are well represented with a Turkish Aerospace Industries T129 Atak Helicopter, the Motor Sich Mi2 and Mi8 MSB-T.

“The aircraft that we are expecting on the static display at the Dubai Airshow 2017, like the show itself, represent all sectors of the aerospace industry,” said Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of show organisers Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East. “We’re seeing lots of returning favourites, like the Emirates A380 and several jets in the Gulfstream family, plus some new and exciting inclusions such as the Calidus Bader 250.”

“We are also very pleased to again see the inclusion of unmanned aerial vehicles, such as the Turkish Aerospace Industries Anka MALE Class UAV which are a particular focus at the show this year, with the UAS Summit taking place for the first time.”

50 business aircraft are expected on the static park, including a Gulfstream G650ER and Bombardier Global 6000; while Emirates Airline will be displaying its all business class ACJ319.
