Bangalore: From a modest beginning as a defence exposition in 1996, Aero India 2007, slated for February 7-11, the sixth edition of the biennial event, has matured beyond recognition, drawing attention from all the global aviation biggies.
The fact that Farnborough International Ltd (FIL), the organiser of the Farnborough Air Show, has joined the Ministry of Defence and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Ficci) as co-organisers, underlines the growing importance of the show.
In all, 450 firms are expected to participate in Aero India 2007, up from 380 in Aero India 2005. The number of foreign firms among the air show participants will be 275, against 232 in the last event. The number of visitors at the mega event is expected to be about 35,000, including 4,000 international visitors.
Companies like Boeing IDS, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon Missile Systems, BAE Systems, Embraer, Bombardier and Bell Helicopter, who are bidding for various defence deals are among the most active participants in the event.
Aero India this year will also see participation by a range of IT majors like TCS, Wipro, Infosys, HCL and IBM, and engineering product designing and development solutions providers like CADES and Quest.
Hindusthan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is also full of enthusiasm for the event. The company has twin objectives--to showcase its products, and also its engineering and manufacturing excellence.
