Who remembers the first air shows of the world, with thousand people impressed with a new incredible machine flying up and down and performing low passing flights above the public, calling the attention and making the public sigh. The years were passing and the air shows were getting better with new technologies and big business deals closed. Now it is time of Brazil to enter in this area with the International Brazil Air Show (IBAS). The air show was officially presented last Monday at Rio de Janeiro International Airport.
IBAS will be realized by Sator and RIOgaleão, the air show count with the support of ABEAR (Associação Brasileira das Empresas Aéreas) ANAC (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) and IATA (International Air Transport Association). IBAS has also FIDAE as a partner. The total investment for IBAS is valued at 7 million Brazilian Reais (BRL).
The air show was created with the aim of gathering the aerospace chain of airport infrastructure and commercial aviation suppliers, military and executive for interlocution of these three categories, developing improvements to the market. With the mission to encourage discussion and promote business between the sectors involved in order to boost this market, thus generating value and leadership to the sector in Latin America.
Organizers has the expectation to gather around 300 companies of the aerospace sector in a 40 thousand square meter area at the Cargo Terminal of Rio de Janeiro International Airport. They also expect to receive a public of 150 thousand people and a monetary movement of 1 billion Brazilian Reais (BRL) during the five days of air show.
The event will count with a specially designed program to attract international audiences, such as business meetings, seminars and national and international delegations. The event structure will feature aircraft and equipment on display, exhibition hall, a space of formation of technology and innovation, air shows and flight simulators. It will be the biggest event after the 2016 Summer Olympics, the major event of aerospace industry ever held in the country and one of the largest in Latin America.
Since Brazil has 1.3% of its GDP led by aviation economic chain, the country has 600 aircraft serving the commercial aviation and 1.650 jets serving the private segment (the second biggest business jet fleet of the world). So IBAS is a missing event of aerospace that the country was in need. With the quick growth of aviation in Latin America, the air show will certainly have a huge success.
