Like so much of the growth seen in the Middle East, aviation interests have raced ahead at an alarming pace. Super-size airline orders have been practically commonplace, manufacturers of military hardware flock to the region, and business aviation is a natural fit for those who must make themselves mobile on a global scale.

The Dubai Air Show continues to fulfill the role of showplace for all things aeronautical. Join us when we gather here again in two years, at a new venue, the Al Maktoum International Airport. This aerial view of the static display at Dubai Airport Expo was made possible by Eurocopter who arranged a flight for our photographer.
