Visit the leading trade fair of the German aerospace industry at Berlin’s ExpoCenter Airport on June 3 and 4, 2016. The ILA Berlin Air Show has been held in Berlin every two years since 1992 and is organised by the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) and Messe Berlin GmbH.
More than 1,200 exhibitors from almost 40 countries will present their products, systems and processes from all sectors of the aerospace industry.
The ILA Berlin Air Show features segments devoted to civil aviation, space technology, defence and security, equipment and general aviation.
Aircraft of all sizes and categories and from every era will be on show on the ground and in the air.
There will be several premieres this year, while the highlight of the show will be the various flying displays that feature a range of aircraft large and small spanning all periods of aviation history.
The first two days of the ILA Airshow (1 and 2 June 2016) will only be open to trade visitors, but on the last two days (3 and 4 June) it will be open to the general public. The ILA will be open daily from 10am to 6pm, except for the Long Friday on 3 June when the spectacular flying displays and a varied programme of activities go on until 8pm.
If you are a keen pilot or an aviation enthusiast you can find out more about man’s first attempts at flight and the great aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal at the Otto Lilienthal Museum in Anklam, in north-east Germany. Lilienthal was the first person to make successful gliding flights in an aircraft and made mankind’s dream of flight a reality.
You can also explore the story of flying at the Dornier Museum in Friedrichshafen near Lake Constance where you will find a wealth of information on aerospace history.
