The 11th edition of the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (Ebace) is set to open on Tuesday in Geneva. Joint organizers EBAA and NBAA expect the event to be 16 percent larger than last year’s and, in terms of the area of booked exhibit space, it could even be the biggest yet with almost 500 exhibitors signed to set up shop at Geneva’s Palexpo center. JetOptions is a member of the NBAA and will be attending. The Ebace static display will be packed and at least one major airframer is known to be ready to announce a new model by opening day. There will be several aircraft order announcements pending, and this will provide further evidence of a European bizav sector taking some tentative steps toward a sustained recovery. EBACE is set in Geneva on May 17, 18 and 19.
