Expanded ACE24 line-up takes shape

After 2023’s sell out show, we are really looking forward to this year’s event on September 10th. ACE is now firmly established on the expo circuit and in the business air charter calendar. This year there will be more booths and another incisive conference programme – all in one glorious day.

Enhanced security means there will once again be a free, four-minute shuttle bus service from the visitor car park to the show itself. For those unable to attend, or simply wanting to catch up later, the conference sessions will be broadcast live and online for review afterwards. ACE always delivers an excellent programme on a diverse range of subjects, delivered by those in the game. The speaker schedule will be confirmed nearer the time.

As you probably know by now, ACE is not just about learning; the small but perfectly formed expo also offers the best face-to-face networking opportunities. There was a lively buzz at ACE23 as operators and industry professionals engaged with customers. This unique event enables industry-based exhibitors to present their products and services to their most important customers either at a stand or, just a few metres away, on the static display onboard the aircraft.

The inside static for the 2024 show is now sold out, but there are still a few places available outside on the apron with no landing fees, no parking fees and only one day’s commitment. Contact me on +44 (0) 1279 714521 or email to book your aircraft position.

This year, from the larger size of aircraft, ACE will showcase a Falcon 6X from Dassault Aviation, your first chance to see it in the UK. Textron is bringing a Citation Latitude, and there will also be a Gulfstream G600 from Pen-Avia and a G700 from Qatar Executive.

On the lighter side, there will be a Citation M2 Gen2 from Textron Aviation, Haute Aviation is bringing its Phenom 300, Rheinland Air Service/Bookajet its HondaJet Elite II, Silver Aviation its Pilatus PC-24 and IAS Medical is bringing its King Air 250.

From the helicopter industry we have a Leonardo AW139 from Castle Air.

But this is just the start, with around six months to go, more operators are lining up to secure a spot outside.

For delegates, pre-registration starts in June. Tickets can be purchased online up until 11:00 on Monday, 9th September; they cannot be bought on arrival. Tickets are restricted to professionals in air charter companies, business aircraft owners, operators and passengers, and the related supply chain.
