The three-day event, being held at the Orlando Executive Airport (ORL), will feature a record-setting 139 aircraft, marking a significant increase of last year’s 115 aircraft on static display at Fulton County Airport (FTY) in Atlanta. Displaying the most exciting aircraft in the marketplace, the static display offers NBAA2008 Attendees an unparalleled opportunity for a one-stop shopping experience to compare and contrast and discover what best suits their business needs.

Sustainable design will play a key role in all the static display has to offer Attendees. Recent spikes in fuel prices and business aviation incidents have focused attention on the ability of our industry to get passengers where they are going as safely and affordably as possible. To meet this renewed interest, the static display will place an increased emphasis on the advanced composite materials, propulsion systems and avionics that are leading the industry to new heights.
