DUBAI: The 2018 edition of the Dubai HeliShow is ready to begin its run from November 6 to 8, 2018 at the Royal Pavilion, Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai South, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, with over 60 exhibitors and visitors from more than 30 countries.

Now in its seventh edition, the three-day event will feature leading global speakers and top companies from Hungary, the USA, Canada, Australia, Italy, Lithuania, Egypt, Russia, Bahrain, Switzerland, Romania, Lebanon, France, United Kingdom, Ukraine, Korea, Colombia and the UAE, to showcase their products, services and technologies for defence, homeland security, commercial and military helicopter sectors and explore future partnerships.

Regarding this year’s exhibition, Ahmad Abulhoul, Managing Director of Domus Group, organisers of Dubai HeliShow 2018, said, “In addition to highlighting recent advancements in helicopter technology, this year’s edition of Dubai HeliShow is set to explore the segment’s regional growth potential by bringing industry leaders, pioneers and other industry stakeholders under one umbrella to discuss strategies and roadmaps to effectively improve defence and homeland security capabilities. The show will be marked with three exciting days of exhibitions, product demonstrations and networking opportunities all designed to increase awareness on the major trends and developments that will impact the market’s future at both regional and global levels.”

Also, Jalaal Abu Hassan, Regional Sales Manager, Instruments - ME, FLIR Systems, said, “In the defence sector, thermal imaging is mostly associated with ‘seeing the enemy.’ The technology is now widely used by government test labs, military test range applications, and aerospace and astronomy applications to include tracking, target signature, laser designation and scoring, munitions testing, adaptive optics, technical surveillance and countermeasures. With the information provided by thermal imaging, researchers can characterise objects in the thermal spectrum to identify and improve their designs.”

Regarding his participation, Steve Ghaleb, Vice President of Commercial Operations at DART Aerospace, said, “Attending this show as a networking exhibitor and sponsor is another great stepping-stone towards having a stronger presence in the region. Especially with the high demand for our AW139 Emergency Flotation System with Integrated Liferaft, we are glad to be offering aerospace mission-critical equipment of the highest value to aircraft OEM and operators within the UAE. Not only is it essential for DART Aerospace to support the industry, it is also part of our vision to help define the future of cost-effective equipment in this evolving aerospace industry.”

Dubai South, a master-planned city and the emirate’s flagship urban project, is the key partner and supporter of this year’s Dubai HeliShow. The partnership positions Dubai South as the latest aviation district in the Middle East capable of enhancing the growing demands in the aviation sector in the UAE and across the region.
