Nobody will bring the action, showmanship and adrenaline like Paris Air Show – the international trade show for aerospace, aircraft and aviation that has been going on for over a century. Yes, the first edition of the air show (also referred to as Salon International de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace or SIAE for short in its native French) first took to the skies in 1909, when aviation existed more as a novelty than a real industry. Now the Paris Air Show is one of the chief platforms for business negotiations and innovations in Europe and the world. The event combines live demonstrations with purely networking events where experts, decision makers and major buyers mingle. In terms of product categories, visitors are able to see 140 aircraft and oversee the latest in aircraft engines, aerospace power plants, related equipment, cabin interior, pilot aids, subcontracting, aircraft construction, helicopters, defense technology, satellite communication systems, space research, space vehicles.
Paris Air Show has been a fixture of modern Paris’ cultural calendar since the dawn of last century and in that time has been staged every two years with editions falling on odd years. The show runs for a week at the start of summer usually in late June. Because it’s an air show it needs the right facilities, so the organisers, Salons Internationaux de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace, located it at Le Bourget airport in Paris. Everyone is welcome to come whether they are aviation professionals or members of the general public. Trade visitors are admitted between 08:30 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon every single day, while the general public are admitted only on Friday through to Sunday. Le Bourget is an active airport so it’s well-connected to the city and the rest of France through train lines, the metro, RER and three separate bus lines.
