Aero India 2011
India will give a grand welcome to international aviation industry heavyweights when it hosts the 8th edition of 'Aero India 2011' from February 9-13 at the Air Force Station Yelahanka, Bengaluru.
The biennial event, pegged to be Asia's premier air show, will provide a dedicated platform to aerospace and aviation sector bigwigs to showcase their products and technological know-how before a large number of participants.
The exhibition will be organised by the Indian Ministry of Defence in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
Two days prior to the exhibition, an international seminar on 'Aero & Space Technologies - Success Through Global Cooperation' will be organised by the Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) in association with the Aeronautical Society of India.
The seminar from February 7-9 will be a convergence hub for aerospace scientists, designers, manufacturers, operators as well as the academia to put forth their ideas which could lead to collaborative programmes in research & development and manufacturing.
About 60 eminent speakers from India and abroad are expected to take part in the seminar.

The previous edition of the air show, Aero India 2009, had drawn 592 exhibitors from 25 countries, including China, which participated in the exhibition for the first time.
The participants showcased their potential in latest aviation technologies, products, innovations and aircrafts over a period of three exclusive business days to the public as well as private industry, governments and overseas delegations.
A total of 46 military as well as civilian aircraft, including those of the India Air Force, in static and flying display, grabbed the attention of the audience.
Aero India - In Retrospect
The first edition of Aero India was held in 1996.
Since then, the event has gradually earned international recognition with the number of exhibitors going up in every edition of it.
While the fourth edition of the exhibition in 2003 attracted 176 participants from 22 countries, in 2005, the list of exhibitors went up to 380. In the next edition in 2007, over 500 defence and aerospace companies took part in the international event.
Global aviation majors like Boeing, EADS, BAE Systems, Finmeccanica have shared the platform with Indian defence and aerospace majors including HAL, DRDO and ISRO during the previous Aero India shows.
As the global aviation and aerospace sector braces up for new roles and challenges while catering to the needs of a growing list of demanding customers, Aero India 2011 certainly offers a lucrative platform by opening up many new avenues for businesses, deals, joint ventures and technology transfer.
