It is all systems go for F&E Aerospace, the organisers of the first-ever Skyview, a four-day public event being held alongside the Dubai Airshow. Large numbers of visitors are expected to visit Skyview to witness the world’s best pilots dazzle in the sky, and to enjoy the fun-filled activities taking place on the ground. The UAE’s own aerobatic team, Al Fursan, have confirmed their participation in the world class flying display. Skyview will take place from 18 to 21 November 2013, between 12 – 6pm at Dubai World Central (DWC), Jebel Ali, Dubai; with the flying display commencing at 2pm daily.
Skyview will feature a purpose-built grand stand with a capacity for 6000 visitors, located right next to the Dubai Airshow event to allow the public direct views of the spectacular flying action above. On the ground, Skyview will offer exhibits, games and activities to keep both families and aviation enthusiasts enthralled.
As access to the Dubai Airshow exhibition hall and static display is restricted to aviation industry officials only, F&E Aerospace is working with partners such as KidZania, Gulf News and Etihad Airways, to deliver a different variety of entertainment for the general public in Skyview. In addition to the flying display and ground entertainment, there will be food and beverage outlets catering to every taste and organisers are confident Skyview will offer an unbeatable day out.
Sharief Fahmy, CEO of F&E Aerospace spoke about this exciting new edition to the Dubai Airshow, saying: “We are going full throttle this year to ensure our visitors get an experience they will never forget. Whether visitors are aviation fanatics or novices who want to learn about the wonders of flight, Skyview will have it all. Skyview at the Dubai Airshow is a guaranteed fun filled day out - offering spectators something to remember both on the ground and in the sky.”

The Dubai Airshow is organised under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and in co-operation with Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Dubai Airports and the UAE Armed Forces.
