As of late yesterday, the 63rd NBAA convention easily exceeded expectations, with 23,831 visitors logged, surpassing the total of the entire 2009 show. The DeKalb Peachtree Airport static display is full at 93 aircraft with a waiting list, and 1,083 exhibitors filled the Georgia World Congress Center halls. In marked contrast to last year, NBAA ‘10 participants pulled out the stops, with new aircraft, engine and avionics programs announced, airplanes ordered and hot-and-heavy activity on the show floor. Next year, NBAA gathers in Las Vegas, October 10 to 12.
