Cannes Air Show 2013

The Cannes Air Show 2013 will be held at Cannes-Mandelieu International Airport, June 6-8 2013. The air show is the only one of its kind in the south of France. Each year it attracts buyers, sellers and airplane fans for the three day exhibition and conference programme. Both the new and second-hand airplane markets are catered for, with private individuals and professionals exhibiting planes.

Among the exhibitors will be the US manufacturer Piper, with new models in the M-Class series. This reflects a growing trend in Europe toward new, more fuel-efficient business aircraft. “More buyers are selecting new fuel-efficient aircraft to replace larger twin-engine airplanes as attention turns to higher fuel costs,” said Peter Winters, General Manager of Winters Aviation. “With Piper M-Class turboprops and piston-powered airplanes, they keep their cabin-class travel options.”
