ILA 2014 to take place in spring again
Next year’s ILA Berlin Air Show will once again be taking place at the usual time of year, in spring. From 20 to 25 May 2014 the Berlin Air Show will be showcasing cutting-edge aerospace technology from all parts of the aerospace industry.
The first three days of the ILA (20 to 25 May) are reserved exclusively for trade visitors. On the weekend the show will be open to the public (23 to 25 May). Among the highlights will be a flying display programme over several hours featuring aircraft of all types and sizes from all eras.
The venue is Berlin ExpoCenter Airport, which was inaugurated at ILA 2012. Located directly adjacent to BER, the capital’s future new airport, it is connected by taxiways to BER’s new south runway. ILA 2014 will feature halls and chalets covering around 50,000 square metres, an outdoor display area for aerospace industry exhibits occupying 100,000 square metres as well as an area covering 100,000 square metres for spectators and transportation.
With individual aerospace sections concentrated in small areas at the ILA visitors need cover only short distances. Sections include Commercial Aviation, Space Flight, Defence and Security, including the UAS Plaza featuring unmanned Aircraft Systems, Equipment, Engines and Materials, alongside the International Suppliers Center ISC (20 to 22 May), Helicopters and the ILA Career Center (23 to 24 May). Also taking place will be a comprehensive programme of conferences with numerous leading events representing almost every sector of the aerospace industry.
