The impressive line-up of aircraft at the NBAA BACE 2014 static display, hosted by Showalter Flying Service, drew large numbers of show attendees from the Convention Center to Orlando Executive Airport. The almost 100 new and preowned jets and twin turboprops comprised several aircraft making their first NBAA or public appearances, including Embraer’s Legacy 450 and Cessna’s Citation Latitude (both making their public debuts) and the Gulfstream G650ER and Citation Sovereign+. With more than a dozen pistons, helicopters and turboprop singles showcased at the Convention Center’s indoor static display, the ramp was clear to feature the largest gathering of large-cabin jets and executive-configured airliners in recent memory. Bombardier’s display included a trio of Global 6000s, Dassault Falcon’s lineup featured its flagship 7X, Embraer’s roster was led by the Lineage 1000E, while an Airbus ACJ and Boeing BBJ anchored corners of the vast apron. While today is the last day to experience this year’s NBAA show, there is always next year’s BACE, which takes place in Las Vegas November 17-19.
