Saudi Arabia will not be left out anymore when it comes to the international Air show circuits. Thanks to His Royal Highness Prince Sultan Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Saudi Arabia is scheduled to host its first ever Saudi Air show hosted by the Saudi Aviation Club according to an article published by Ainonline. "Starting next year, Saudi Arabia will join the international air show circuit with the debut of the Saudi Air show, to be held from March 12 through 14.  The exhibition—a mix of business, general, and commercial aviation—will take place at Riyadh’s Thumamah Airport, which will be dedicated solely to the event. It will feature 100,000 sq m (1 million-plus sq ft) of static display area that will accommodate more than 100 aircraft from single-engine light aircraft to widebody jetliners. Chalets next to the runway will facilitate demonstration flights. Three exhibit halls will house 700 exhibitor booths and international pavilions. The show, hosted by the Saudi Aviation Club, founded and chaired by Sultan Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, will be coordinated by Adone Events, which also manages the Abu Dhabi Air Expo, the African Air show, and France Air Expo. “I am honoured that the Saudi Aviation Club has shown its confidence in Adone Events by agreeing to collaborate with us on this exciting new venture,” said general manager Didier Mary. “Our experience, knowledge, and network of aviation contacts are such that we can already confirm that more than 200 aviation companies have expressed strong interest in attending. The growth of aviation in Saudi Arabia reflects the need for this type of international exhibition and we are delighted to be involved.”
