Bengaluru air show to be first hybrid aerospace expo

Bengaluru : The 13th edition of Aero India 2021 here on February 3-5 would be the world’s first hybrid aerospace and defence expo amid the coronavirus pandemic, an official said on Friday.

“The three-day air show will be the world’s first hybrid exhibition where the business activity will be physical and virtual, while the static and flying display of the military and civil aircraft will be at the venue,” a defence official told IANS here.

The biennial event will be held at the Yellahanka air base of the Indian Air Force (IAF) on the city’s northern outskirts for three days instead of five days in the past due to Covid-induced restrictions on large gathering of people in public places to contain the virus spread.

Till date, 576 Indian and overseas exhibitors and 35 foreign delegations have registered for the event.

At a review meeting of the preparation for the event with the Karnataka government, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh stressed on the safe conduct of the largest aerospace event in South Asia.
