Come March 14, citizens of the twin cities are in for an aero treat. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner will make its maiden landing at Begumpet airport.

The Dreamliner, set to be inducted into Air India's fleet, will be on display with specifications – interiors, colours and logo of the country's premier carrier – and will give a chance to citizens to have a look and feel of the aircraft. The plane is expected to fly 16,000 km non-stop making it ideal for medium and long haul routes.

Sukhoi Superjet

Giving company to the Dreamliner will be the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.

Accompanying the two much-talked-about aircraft are the new business jets from Embraer – Phenom 300 & 100 that are sure to make their presence felt at the third edition of the India Aviation 2012 being held at Hyderabad.

The five-day show from March 14 to 18 will be open for business visitors for the first three days and general visitors over the next two. Billed as the only focussed event on civil aviation in the country, India Aviation will feature participation of over 200 exhibitors including aircraft manufacturers and those related to the industry.

Being jointly organised by the Ministry of Civil Aviation and FICCI, the event will feature display of commercial aircraft, helicopters, cargo planes, business jets, regional aircraft and motor gliders. It will provide networking opportunities for those engaged in the airline industry including airlines, aviation service agencies, airline charters & taxi operations, satellite imagery companies and financial institutions besides flying schools and charter transport organisations.

Major names in the airlines space like Pratt & Whitney, part of the United Technologies Corporation and largest suppliers of the aircraft engines, Russian Aerospace organisation IRKUT and Piaggio Aero, in addition to aircraft machinery & equipment manufacturing companies and others will participate in the third edition.
