“The constructive and progressive dialogue that has taken place on the future of the industry is testament to Abu Dhabi’s emergence as a major hub for aviation and aerospace,” he added.
This week’s ADAAW, characterised by six key events, sees the launch of Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2016, which also features the Middle East Aviation Career Conference and Exhibition alongside the Abu Dhabi Heli Expo. The event, hosted by Abu Dhabi Airports, will bring together thousands of global industry stakeholders at Al Bateen Executive Airport to highlight and discuss the latest developments in aviation innovation and business practice, in line with Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 and UAE Vision 2021.

UMEX 2016 and the Simulation Conference and Exhibition have served as vital platforms in fostering relationships between manufacturers and operators across unmanned systems technology and military training equipment, while the exclusive Global Aerospace Summit brought senior executives under one roof to delve into innovation across the industry going forward.
