Paris Air Show Turns 50

Jun 12, 2013 No Comments by

Hollywood’s stars may have moved on from the red carpets of Cannes, but the real “jet set” — the CEOs and executives who decide how, when and what we fly — are heading back to France.

The A-listers of global aviation will be at Le Bourget from June 17 to 23 for the 50th Paris Airshow – the biggest and most important event in the industry’s calendar, where billion-dollar deals are done at the edge of the runway as stunt pilots swoop through the skies overhead.

More than 2,100 companies from 44 countries around the world will fly in to showcase their wares at Le Bourget; from jumbo-sized jets and massive manufacturing tools to the tiniest springs, cogs and other components, as well as high-tech concepts which may not see the light of day for decades.

About the author

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
