Business aviation will be well represented at the Singapore Airshow, despite the fact that just over a month later, most companies will be heading to Shanghai for NBAA’s relaunched Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (Abace). Airbus will give a show debut to its ACJ318 in Singapore, as will Gulfstream with its new G280. Another newcomer will be Ruag’s 228NG business/utility aircraft (a reworking of the Dornier twin turboprop).
Also on the bizav roster for Singapore are Cessna, Bombardier, Dassault, Embraer, Pilatus and Piper. The rotorcraft fraternity will be represented by AgustaWestland, Bell Helicopter and Eurocopter, even though these firms are also set to make a strong showing at the 2012 HeliExpo being staged in Dallas just the week before.
