What our attendees say...

“This event provides a unique opportunity to hear directly from key players in the global aviation industry. Key issues, such as the need to enable more evidence-based approaches in pilot training and professional development, have emerged which could have a profound effect on the sector.”

Dr. Darryll Bravenboer, Middlesex University


“During my aviation career I have attended many air shows and what makes Dubai airshow so unique is its excellent organization, the mass products of the latest technology on display with a very close and friendly environment.”

Capt. Suhail Ismaeel, Senior VP ITC, Integrated Training Center, Qatar Airways


“It is nice to know Dubai is continuing to grow and becoming an increasingly important global aerospace hub. Dubai Airshow is helping to drive and shape this growth. I have attended Dubai Airshow several times and every time I see advancement in civil and military aviation through exhibition and display. We are facing growing regional demand for civil aviation training, recruitment and simulation, hence I am also looking forward to participate in Gulf Aviation Training Event (GATE) during the airshow.”

Ajay Rajbanshi, AVP-Ground School, SpiceJet Ltd


“The projected growth in air traffic within the Gulf region is rapidly coming to fruition. GATE allows us to better understand the challenges we face, review forthcoming changes to regulations and identify the best way to implement them, ultimately enabling us to deliver more relevant and realistic training to our crews.”

Capt Martin Mahoney, Senior Vice President Flight Training, Emirates Airline
