Dubai Airshow has announced the first round of aircraft taking part in the flying display at this year’s event.

Aerobatic displays at this year will include PLAAF August 1st Air Demonstration Team from China performing in J10As and the Russian Knights in Sukhoi SU30Ms, in addition to the UAE’s Al Fursan flying their Aermacchi MB-339NATs.

Of particular interest this year will be the Calidus Bader 250, which is manufactured in the UAE.

Also appearing for the first time at Dubai Airshow will be the Sukhoi SU35, while other aircraft flying include the Airbus A350 and a Beriev BE200 ES demonstrating its firefighting ability.

The flying display will also feature helicopters, including the TAI T129 attack helicopter and Motor Sich Mil 2 and Mil 8 models.

A large number of military aircraft will also be demonstrating their prowess, with a US Airforce F16, UAE Mirage 2000, French Airforce Dassault Rafale and a Taqnia AN132.

“The flying display at the Dubai Airshow is always a popular feature with exhibitors and visitors alike,” said Michele van Akelijen, managing director of show organisers Tarsus F&E Middle East.

The Dubai Airshow will take place November 12-16 at the DWC, Dubai Airshow Site, with the flying display underway from 2pm – 5pm each day of the show. Trade visitor tickets are available from dubaiairshow.aero for $76 for the five-day event.
