Jetting into Abu Dhabi

I’m in Abu Dhabi this week for the Abu Dhabi Air Expo, a show which purports to be the Gulf’s first general aviation show, but is as much about the big jets of business aviation.

The UAE’s answer to Dubai’s MEBA, the event, at the city’s Al Bateen executive airport, is lower-key (tents instead of chalets and exhibition halls), but, in its second year, is making an impression. Most of the big guns are here, including Gulfstream, Dassault and Bombardier.

I’ll be Tweeting from the show Tuesday and Wednesday, and we’ll have a report in the 12 March issue of Flight International.
