The Dubai Airshow is a biennial show held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Organized by the “F&E Aerospace” since 1989, this leading aerospace event serves as the international stage for the industry’s finest to show off their biggest, fastest, best, and loudest products and innovations in hopes of scoring major economy-boosting deals.
A major US competitor, Boeing, is currently leading the order books race.
Airlines in the Gulf have placed a number of high-value plane orders on the first day of the Dubai Air Show, with US giant Boeing a major winner.
Additionally, major contractors such as Raytheon have thrown a few cards in play as well.
Raytheon’s red-and-white show headquarters is showcasing many of the technologies that make aviation work, including the air traffic management software that safely guides planes on the most efficient routes from Point A to Point Z and everyplace in between.
With January 2014 marking the 100th year of commercial aviation, it’s amazing to see what all the Aerospace Industry has in store for the future. Who know’s what they’ll come up with next! Guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
