Multiple Operational Aircraft to be Featured
Boeing’s exhibit at the Dubai Airshow later this month will have a commercial aviation flavour, without a doubt – but the defence and aerospace behemoth will not neglect the opportunity to showcase its very considerable defence capabilities, either. “The show is a perfect opportunity to come together and remind the world of the importance of our industry and discuss technology and innovations that are critical to advance a more sustainable aerospace industry over the long term,” commented Kuljit Ghata-Aura, President of Boeing Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
Defence products to be highlighted in Dubai will include the F-15EX EAGLE II combat aircraft and the T-7A Advanced Pilot Training System, as well as its Autonomous Systems portfolio, including the Boeing Airpower Teaming System and the Insitu INTEGRATOR ER and ScanEagle unmanned systems. Global defence customers are expected to display several operational Boeing aircraft, including the MV-22 OSPREY, KC-46A PEGASUS, P-8A POSEIDON, C-17 GLOBEMASTER III, AH-64 APACHE and CH-47F CHINOOK.
Boeing also will discuss its parts, modifications, digital, sustainment and training solutions, including an expansive global supply chain, maintenance and logistics network. Government services will feature in-country partnerships with on-the-ground support for its installed base of defence platforms.
