Making a final show appearance here is Boeing Business Jets chief pilot Capt. Mike Hewett, whose BBJ flight to EBACE saw him pass the 12,800 flying-hour mark (including more than 4,000 hours in the U.S. Navy flying mostly Grumman A-6 Intruders).
Paris-based operator Trans Helicopter Service (THS) has its twin-engine Eurocopter AS 355 Ecureuil II available here at EBACE 2007 for demo flights of Safe Flight’s helicopter powerline detection system (PDS).
The European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, which hosted its inaugural event here just six years ago with relatively modest ambitions, has blossomed into what some exhibitors now regard as the most important event on their show calendar.
In six years as host city, Geneva remains a favorite on the trade show circuit. EBACE is experiencing some growing pains that have forced organizers to split the exhibits into two halls, but the venue remains a broad hit with visitors.
For the past six years at EBACE, Gulfstream has given groups of aviation journalists the opportunity to experience the cabin amenities of one of its business jets during a morning flight over the Alps.
