Austrian Presence at AVALON 2017 - THE ESSENTIAL AVIATION, AEROSPACE AND DEFENCE SHOWCASE FOR AUSTRALIA AND THE ASIA PACIFIC REGION

Avalon
3 April 2017

Every two years, the Avalon airstrip is home to an unusual amount of activity. The Avalon Airshow, which attracted a record of 200.000 guests this February, became the centre of attention of both civil and military aviation, as well as general defence activities. While a large part of visitors is made up of the general public admiring the impressive flight displays, the actual exhibition on trade days was home to the who is who of international and Australian aviation.

According to Airshow spokesman Tom Bennett, AUD 1.2 billion of aviation business was transacted or finalised at the last air show in 2015, with similar expectations for 2017. Participants were exposed to more than AUD 4 billion worth of defence contract opportunities.  

Austrian companies were right in the centre of all this. With our top players such as Schiebel , who has just nailed a major Navy contract (zum Artikel verlinken), and Frequentis as a major contributor to the OneSky project, as well as the beautiful Diamond Aircraft planes represented by Hawker Pacific and the aviation industry’s favourite fire trucks by Rosenbauer , to name a few, our country was well represented in Avalon.
