Anyone who has studied the market for business aviation seriously in Asia accepts that its potential will take time to come to fruition, but that when it happens the scale of its growth should be substantial.
The Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) held its first general meeting since its resurrection at last summer’s regional forum in Hong Kong in preparation for this month’s Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (ABACE).
ABACE 2005 has drawn the world’s leading business aircraft manufacturers to its exhibitor roster: Boeing Business Jets, Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault Falcon Jet, Embraer, Gulfstream Aerospace, Pilatus and Raytheon.
The first Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) will be staged in Shanghai, China, from August 9 to 11. As of late June, the event had attracted the support of 40 exhibitors, including all the leading business aircraft manufacturers.
For the third consecutive year in AIN’s Product Support Survey, readers gave Gulfstream top marks for both its newer business jets (less than 10 years old) and older business jets (10 years or older), when ratings for the Westwind series are excluded.
In the ongoing debate about what the next generation air transportation system (NGATS) should entail, the Air Traffic Control Association held a symposium in Washington in late June to discuss “Rightsizing the NAS.”
