Aero India Show-Bangalore

Aero India Show is a biennial aviation exhibition held in Bangalore. Ever since its first edition in 1996, Aero India Show has emerged as the largest air show in Asia and one of the most important in the world. While the primary purpose of Aero India Show is for the global aerospace equipment manufacturers to display their wares and woo the Indian Defence and Civilian Aviation Industry, its a great place to be in for the ordinary aviation enthusiast.


You can feast your eyes on the likes of C130J Super Hercules, KC135 Stratotanker refueller, C17 Globemaster III, Tejas Light Combat Aircraft, Dhruv Advanced Light Helicopter, Sitara Intermediate Jet Trainer and Rafale fighter craft.

Even if fighter jets and helicopters are not exactly in your shopping list, Aero India Show is worth a visit for the spectacular air stunt show by some of the world's finest aerobatic squadrons like the Flying Bulls aerobatic team.
