Organizers of the third annual Eur-Avia Cannes show say that, despite worsening economic conditions in Europe, the private aviation event will be twice the size of last year’s. As of mid-January, 90 percent of the 2008 exhibitors had committed to this year’s event (April 30 to May 2) and with new exhibitors joining them, these companies will fill nearly 600,000 sq ft of exhibition space. Eur-Avia is held at Cannes-Mandelieu Airport, with confirmed exhibitors including Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft, Socata, Mooney, Piper, Robinson Helicopter and MD Helicopters.
