Dubai Air Show 2013 unveiled in Dubai World Central
The family-friendly Dubai Air Show 2013 was unveiled yesterday by the UAE Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum at the Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai World Central.
The Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, was also present during the inauguration of the five-day forum. After the ribbon cutting, His Highness began his tour of several pavilions at the show.
He said that the event represents the ideal growth platform for commercial and military aviation sectors, and that he hoped the Dubai Air Show 2013 would be an extension of its previous successes, particularly with this year’s event having drawn hi-tech suppliers from across the world.
The bi-annual airshow is the right opportunity for all airplane geeks to catch a view of aircraft displays, and meet people who fly them. There are more than 6000 grandstand seats right next to the runway, from where viewers can watch the show comfortably.

To chat with people at the controls of the aircraft, guests can meet pilots daily between 2pm and 6pm.
Furthermore, children can visit the kidZania, a shuttle bouncy castle, space bouncy castle, space rocket game and a human space-ball, and arts and crafts area. For youngsters aiming to become a pilot, the UAE flying school Horizon have their flight simulator too.
