The Stars have Arrived at FIDAE

The Airbus A400M landed today at FIDAE in Santiago de Chile. With the A400M and the Airbus A380, both Airbus stars of this year’s Air and Defense Show have arrived. It's the first time, the A400M is shown in Latin America.

There were rumors, that the F-22 RAPTOR of the USAF would also be attending, ...not true. Boeing is showcasing the B-787 DREAMLINER.

Other aircrafts that can be seen at FIDAE are the PILATUS PC-12NG, EUROCOPTER EC725, KAI T-50 GOLDEN EAGLE trainer, ALENIA AERMACCHI C-27J, IA-63 PAMPA, FK-27 and many more.

The organisation of FIDAE is expecting the same large attendance numbers as two years ago, when FIDAE was held for the last time.

Here are some events that are worth memorising:
Opening Ceremony – 27/03/12 at 10:00
Press conference Lockheed Martin – 27/03/12 at 12:00, Media Building
Press conference Embraer – 27/03/12 at 15:00, Room 4
Press conference Russian Helicopter – 28/03/12 at 13:00, Conference Hall 4
Press conference Saab – 28/03/12 at 10:00, Chalet B3
