Aventure Exhibits in USA Pavilion at the 2023 Dubai Airshow

DUBAI, UAE – Aventure Aviation exhibited at the Dubai Airshow, which was held November 13–17 at Dubai’s Al Maktoum Airport in the United Arab Emirates. 

The Aventure exhibit paid tribute to Dubai’s aviation history, where visitors were able to be photographed “piloting” a 1930s flying boat. A daily raffle was held, where guests won model aircraft featuring the Sikorsky S-42 flying boat, C-130 military transport, and Boeing 737 in Aventure Aviation livery.

Attending Aventure staff included senior vice president Amyr Qureshi, manager of military sales Ron Taylo, regional director for Asia Saurabh Tripathi, sales manager for Asia Salman Basheer, and military accounts manager Nayle Siddiqui.

The biennial Dubai Airshow began in 1989 with 200 exhibitors and 25 aircraft. This year’s show featured some 1,400 exhibitors from 95 countries, 190 aircraft, and 350 speakers. The event hosted 20 individual country pavilions, with Aventure exhibiting at the one representing the United States.

“The show had record-breaking deals worth over $101 billion,” Basheer said. “It was convenient to hold meetings and attend events…a nice change from the COVID restrictions last time.” 

Aventure has participated in every Dubai Airshow since 2003, while individual team members have attended since 1989.
