With just over six weeks to go, ACE'19 (Air Charter Expo) is set to become the most successful edition of this one-day air charter exhibition so far. The show is now almost booked to capacity, registrations are significantly higher to date compared with the same stage in 2018, and it promises a diverse array of aircraft on the static display and a full day of training and presentations.
There will be more than 60 exhibitors from a wide range of leading supply companies including airports and FBOs, aircraft manufacturers, charter operators and brokers, aircraft management and technology experts, maintenance providers, finance, insurance and specialist consultancies.
The programme of training topics and presentations covers some of the most important issues currently threatening the industry. These include a panel discussion on illegal charters and two concurrent presentations on the future of broking and the future of operating.
On the static display an excellent selection of aircraft will be on show. These will include a Dassault Falcon 8X, a VIP Boeing 737 and a Gulfstream G500 along with many other aircraft types, already exceeding the number of aircraft seen on display in 2018. Visitors to ACE'19 will have plenty of opportunities to climb on board and explore the aircraft, learning about the different cabin capacities, seating configurations and discussing operational capabilities with pilots and crew.
The Air Charter Association chairman Nick Weston says: “ACE'19 is shaping up to be an outstanding occasion and a must attend event for brokers and operators. The level of interest for 2019 has been exceptional and confirms how ACE has become a firm fixture in the schedules of so many executives in our industry. I look forward to welcoming many new and old friends on 17 September.”
ACE'19 will take place at London Biggin Hill airport on Tuesday, 17 September. It is free to attend and to register: visit www.aircharterexpo.com. The exhibition is organised by the Air Charter Association in partnership with Business Air News and London Biggin Hill airport.
