Be Sure to Visit Avalon 2009

Airplane enthusiasts in Australia will no doubt be looking forward to the 2009 Avalon air show with great anticipation. The Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition will take place over six days and will showcase all the latest developments and trends in these various facets of the industry.

The 2009 Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition is set to take place from March 10 to March 15 next year. However, the first three and a half days of the show will be industry-only trade sessions, which will not be open to the public. Instead only accredited industry personnel and defence and government professionals will be allowed access to the show during this time. That does not mean, however, that the general public will miss out entirely. The doors will open to the public on Friday, March 13, at 2pm and from that point on will be accessible every day, starting at 08:00 and ending at 18:00 on Saturday and Sunday. As is normal with good air shows, the 2009 Avalon air show will see dozens of aircraft take to the sky while many, many more remain on the ground for visitors to get a closer look at. The flying displays will take place from 15:00 to 21:00 on Friday and the aircraft will take to the skies between 10:00 and 16:00 on the Saturday and Sunday of the event.

Static displays will display a broad range of both military and civil aircraft, covering virtually every aspect of flying imaginable. From combat aircraft to UAVs, helicopters to airline aircraft – there will be no shortage of great things to see and discover. And, if the last air show was anything to go by, visitors can expect to see close to 500 different aircraft on display. There will also be a variety of associated industry and technology conferences, while those looking at pursuing a career in the industry will definitely find plenty of information on the subject. Of course there will also be plenty of great food to share with thousands of like-minded airplane-loving individuals who will be present at this great air show in Australia. So if you enjoy looking at airplanes, make sure you get yourself to the next air show in Australia – Avalon 2009.
