Dassault Aviation boss Charles Edelstenne said at the show today that there is growing evidence of recovery in the battered business aviation market.

"We are starting to see some sign of change. The pre-owned market is stabilising in terms of aircraft for sale and price," the Dassault chairman and chief executive said at a conference this morning.

"It will take some time before the trend reverses, but this is the first positive sign that we have been expecting for months. We are meeting more prospects and customers willing to discuss and prepare plans for their future operations."

At another event today European Business Aviation Association chief executive Brian Humphries said early visitor registrations to EBACE - at just 4% lower than the corresponding period at last year's show - were "highly encouraging".
