See Every Aircraft That Was on Display at NBAA2012

November 20, 2012

For the first time ever, the Online News Bureau of NBAA’s Annual Meeting & Convention includes a photo gallery featuring every aircraft displayed at the show, which this year was held from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 in Orlando, FL.

Review the photo gallery.

Always a popular attraction at the NBAA Convention, the 2012 static displays featured some of the world's leading business aircraft. Light business airplanes and helicopters were showcased both inside and outside the Orange County Convention Center, while nearly 100 additional business aircraft were on exhibit at Orlando Executive Airport. The static displays enabled business aircraft buyers from around the globe to evaluate a wide spectrum of aircraft options in person.

“Year over year, the most popular features of the Online News Bureau are the photo galleries.” said Jason Wolf, NBAA director of Internet communications. “It’s no surprise that NBAA Members just love to look at pictures of airplanes.”

People interested in browsing the images can view them by make/model or exhibitor. Aircraft shown range from the AgustaWestland AW139 to the Pilatus PC-12. The galleries also include multiple products from major manufacturers such as Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream and Hawker Beechcraft.

In addition, the galleries include notable historic aircraft that were on display at NBAA2012, such as the Beechcraft Staggerwing and Boeing Stearman.

Two other historic aircraft – the North American P-51 Mustang and T-6 Texan – were on display as part of NBAA’s tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, the pioneering group of World War II African-American aviators that received the Association’s highest honor, the Meritorious Service to Aviation Award.

The NBAA2012 photo galleries are integrated with social media sites, allowing visitors to share photos on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. “We encourage NBAA Members to share these images with colleagues, friends and family” said Wolf. “These aircraft aren’t just gorgeous. They provide an economic lifeline to communities across the U.S. The more people that learn about the true nature of business aviation, the better.”
