France Air Expo will be back with a bang in 2021
General aviation is considered a laboratory for the creation and development of technological advances that are then adapted and adopted by civil aviation. Many of these innovations will be on display at France Air Expo.
The expo is expecting good footfall; many major cities are a mere 90-minute flight away from Lyon.

France Air Expo will take place from 3-5 June 2021 at Lyon-Bron airport, and will be hosted in collaboration with organisers Adone Events. The location represents a strategic choice, as Lyon-Bron is a preferred destination for aviation enthusiasts and is close to a number of large cities, some of which are a 90-minute flight away by single-engine aircraft. The proximity of countries such as Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg is expected to draw international visitors.

The 1,820m runway makes it possible for numerous aircraft types to land without weight restrictions and is anticipated to attract a wide range of aircraft giving heavier, as well as light aircraft, easy access to the show. The airport layout also supports the event with ample parking for visitors and an exhibition and static display located a few metres from the FBO.

“We were warmly welcomed by Pierre Marnotte, director of Lyon-Bron airport, and his team, who share the same passion and commitment as us for setting up a great event in 2021,” enthuses Didier Mary, the event organiser. The hosting at Lyon-Bron has already created a strong partnership between the airport and the organisers, with both sharing the ambition of successfully promoting the event and positioning Lyon-Bron as one of France's preferred airports for private aviation.

General aviation is considered a laboratory for the creation and development of technological advances that are then adapted and adopted by civil aviation. Many manufacturers are strengthening their focus on technology supporting greener aviation, and at this year's event an area dedicated to electric and hybrid propulsion advancements will showcase general aviation's contribution in this field. Sustainability will also be represented by a number of exhibitors displaying technological innovations promoting the ecological transition of the general aviation sector. “The development and incorporation of sustainable resources is a major component of the aviation sector, so we are proud to showcase the concepts originating from the GA market at the June 2021 event,” adds Mary.

The next generation of aviators visiting the show will be acknowledged, with the Greater Lyon Aviation initiation certificates (BIA) being awarded to nearly 1,000 young pilots. This year's event will also welcome an expanded section dedicated to training for careers in aviation.
