Said to be the largest in Asia and the second largest in the world, we’ve been visiting it since the inception in 1996, and it is spectacular. The dates are February 3 to 5, and this time too the Aero India Exhibition will include aerospace exhibitions from over 22 countries, and 400 plus companies showcasing their technology. And, this time it's all digital, so you can check out all the exhibits 24/7.
If you’re interested in the field, check out the displays, audio-visual presentations and models of planes, engines and all things aeronautic! It’s great for kids, and anyone interested in the science of it all. But the star of the event is, and probably always will be the air display.
Hosted by the country’s Defence Ministry, along with several other aero-related organisations, the show features over 70 aircrafts — light combat aircrafts, helicopters, fighters and unmanned aerial vehicles to name a few. If you’re looking for some vicarious thrills, you’re definitely not going to want to miss this — pilots orchestrate their ability to skilfully navigate, coordinate and synchronise — aerobatics with oodles of flair and style, leaving trails of coloured smoke all across the sky. Make a day out of this spectacle because it’s a real visual treat for the family.
But this year, there will only be 15,000 people allowed to enter, and only 3000 per display session. Prices are INR 1,000 for just the show, and INR 2,500 for the exhibition for half a day. Get your tickets here.
