This year’s European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) featured plenty of game-changing technologies, new aircraft announcements, exciting market opportunities and groundbreaking solutions for sustainable flight.
EBAA Chairman, Juergen Wiese, commented: “At EBACE, we saw how business aviation is reinventing the very technology of flight to take on new missions, serve new customers and connect the world sustainably. For decades, our industry has pioneered breakthroughs to fly not only further but more efficiently, and at EBACE, we accelerated our incredible pace of innovation.”
The popular business aviation opened with a keynote by Formula One powerhouse duo Toto and Susie Wolff and featured the unveiling of Textron Aviation’s new Cessna Citation Ascend, as well as the EBACE debut of Airbus Corporate Jets’ ACJ TwoTwenty, Bombardier’s Challenger 3500 and Gulfstream’s G800 aircraft.
“We saw amazing new aircraft announced and debuted, designed to meet the needs of an evolving global business marketplace,” said National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen. “We had a first-hand look at the fuels, propulsion systems and technologies that will lead to net-zero flight. We were inspired by the trailblazers in our industry who are championing teamwork and inclusion. EBACE showed us all that is possible today, and how our shared vision will shape tomorrow.”
Some other highlights for the show included a busy exhibit floor, a sold-out aircraft display and insightful sessions in the new sustainability theatre. The 2023 show was dedicated to the memory and legacy of Athar Husain Khan, the Secretary-General of EBAA.
