Al Bateen Executive Airport is getting ready for the second Abu Dhabi Air Expo (March 5 to 7, 2013), billed as “the only general aviation exhibition in the Middle East.” Organizers appear to be attempting to incorporate light and sport aviation, whereas MEBA is mainly a business aviation show. Air Expo officials anticipate a display of more than 120 aircraft, including helicopters, sport aircraft and an Airbus A319 from locally based Rotana Jet. Corporate/VIP aircraft will feature prominently at the show.
