Charter a Private Jet to the Dubai Air Show
Dubai Air Show
The 2015 Dubai Airshow will be held Nov. 8-12.
Highlights include a 3D Print show.
3D printing, in which objects are manufactured layer by layer, has intrigued the aerospace and defense industries because it can make parts that weigh less than those made in traditional manufacturing methods.
The latest military surveillance aircraft will be on display, including Boeing’s P-8 Poseidon. Even though it is designed for maritime surveillance – to detect submarines – it is also touted for land use protecting borders and search and rescue missions.
And, Katy Perry will be the featured entertainer at the invitation-only dinner gala Nov. 10. She is the latest in a long line of celebrities who have performed at the event. Past performers include Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Rod Stewart and Tom Jones. If you don’t have a ticket, there’s a chance you can win one. Keep an eye on Dubai International Airport’s Facebook page for details.

The Dubai Airshow, which is held over five days in November every other (odd numbered) years, has been growing in importance since beginning in 1986 as Arab Air.
It is a place where those involved in the aviation industry can network with their peers as well as a place where they can see the latest and greatest developments.
One of the world’s fastest growing airshows, it has more than 1,000 exhibitors from 60 countries. More than 160 military, general and commercial aviation aircraft will be on display for more than 60,000 trade visitors from more than 120 countries.
The 2013 Dubai Airshow was record-breaking. More than $206 billion orders were taken and the event was covered by more than 1,700 journalists from all over the world. Those numbers reflect the growing Middle East interest in aerospace.
Rival manufacturers Boeing and Airbus battle to sell the most aircraft to the three biggest Gulf carriers -- Emirates, Etihad and Qatar airways. Just about everything you can think of having to do with flying will be on display in the venue built specifically for the Dubai Airshow at Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) in Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates.
The show is not open to the public. It is for trade visitors only. But, while those in the trade hang out at the airshow, their family and friends can watch flying displays at Skyview, the grandstand arena created for the public. Cutting edge military aircraft, luxurious private planes, commercial airliners and aerobatic teams will perform for the crowds.
The 1,000-plus exhibits include:
- Aircraft manufacturers
- Aerostructure manufacturers
- Air traffic control
- Aircraft interiors and accessories
- Airport management and equipment
- Charters and leasing
- Communication systems
- Defense and weapons systems
- Engines, components and repair
- Executive jet management
- Flight planning
- Ground support equipment
- In-flight entertainment
- Navigation systems
- Radar systems
- Safety equipment
- Search and rescue
- Security systems
- Surveillance and reconnaissance
- Training and simulation
- Unmanned vehicles
And, airshow visitors have much more than planes to see when visiting the UAE and Dubai, the gem of the Arabian Desert.
Dubai is home to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa; the world’s largest artificial islands, the Palm Islands; the world’s largest dancing fountains and the world’s most luxurious hotel.
The Burj Al-Arab hotel, which looks like a sailboat and is replete with gold-leaf undercoating and a fleet of Rolls Royces in the parking lot, has 56 floors and nine restaurants. It sits on its own island overlooking the sea. Room rates? Somewhere between $2,000 and $5,000 a night.
Nine miles away is the world’s tallest building, the 160-floor Burj Khalifa is just over 2,700 feet. By comparison, One World Trade Center stands 1,776 feet, Chicago’s Willis Tower is 1,353 feet and the Empire State Building is 1,454 feet.
Just outside, on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake, is the world’s largest dancing fountain. Designed by the same company that built the fountain at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the Dubai Fountain shoots water jets 500 feet into the air. A beaming light shining up from the fountain can be seen for 20 miles.
And, if you tire of the opulence and just want to soak up the local color, you can always rent a dune buggy and tool around, shop at the open-air markets or watch a camel race.
