Bengaluru Takes Flight: Aero India 2023 to be Held in the City


Aero India 2023, one of the largest aerospace and defense expositions in the world, is set to take place in Bengaluru, India. The event, which is held biennially, will showcase the latest advancements in the aerospace and defense industry and provide a platform for companies to showcase their products and services. The expo will feature a wide range of exhibits including aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, engines, avionics, and defense systems. The event will also include a flying display, where visitors can see aircraft in action and witness aerobatic maneuvers.

The decision to hold Aero India 2023 in Bengaluru was taken due to the city’s strong aerospace and defense ecosystem. Bengaluru is home to several leading aerospace and defense companies, including Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The city is also a hub for aerospace research and development, with several premier institutions such as the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) having a strong presence.

The five-day event will include a substantial aerospace and defence trade fair as well as an aerial performance by the Indian Air Force. International think tanks, as well as key aerospace investors and world leaders, will be involved. So far, 737 exhibitors have registered to participate in the event. According to the Aero India website, 643 of the 737 exhibitors are from India, with the remaining 94 coming from 30 different countries. The Aero India event aims to provide a unique platform for the sharing of information, thoughts, and innovations in the aviation industry.

From February 13 to 17, the 14th edition of “Aero India 2023” will be held at Air Force Station Yelahanka in Bengaluru. The Bengaluru municipal administration has ordered the closure of meat stalls, non-vegetarian hotels, and restaurants in the area of the site from January 30 to February 20. According to local officials, the rule was enacted because non-vegetarian food left out in the open attracts scavenging birds, which might cause mishaps in mid-air. In preparation for “Aero India 2023,” which will be staged in Silicon City Bengaluru, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has banned the sale and serving of beef within a 10-kilometer radius of Yelahanka’s Air Force Station.
