Among all the aviation events with “-BACE” in their acronyms (including the recently renamed NBAA Convention), this tenth edition of the Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (LABACE 2013) probably has the biggest diversity of airplanes with propellors than any other BACE event.

São Paulo, Brazil, is again hosting the static display for the Latin America Business Aviation Confernece and Exhibition (LABACE 2013) and helicopters are there in force. This should not be surprising given that travel to and from the continent’s vast interior that can be made quickly and conveniently only by air and helicopters can land and takeoff from almost anywhere.

According to the latest data from Brazilian industry group ABAG, jets are still in the minority in the country’s business aircraft fleet, with piston-powered equipment still firmly in the majority. But this is changing and jets are now the fastest-growing segment of Brazilian business aviation.

Terrafugia

The Terrafugia flying car made its debut at EAA AirVenture 2013 this week in Oshkosh, Wis. Attendees watched in awe as it drove down the taxiway in car mode before stopping short of the runway, transitioning to the airplane configuration and then taking off. Here are sequential photos of the Terrafugia demonstration at this year’s AirVenture. (Photos: Matt Thurber/AIN)

Sometimes a dream starts with a model, and in the case of potential Chinese aircraft manufacturers, it's more than one.

The Paris Air Show is, well, a show. The “performers” include not just the aerial display aircraft and pilots, but also the exhibitors with their products and services on display for all the world to see, literally.

2013 saw a strong showing of defense aircraft. The thrilling Russian demonstrations returned after a 12-year absence, though U.S. aircraft were shut out of the party due to sequestration budget cuts. All in all, the military muscle on display every afternoon was impressive – and loud.

Airbus A380

Air Transport has always been among the most important players at the Paris Air Show. At this, the 50th anniversary of the LeBourget salon, the heavyweights from Airbus and Boeing were out in force. And as usual, the war of words between the Big Two was part of the festivities. But at least both have been busier signing orders than trading barbs, which is good news for everyone.

The main flight line was well drenched during the downpour.

The first day of this years Paris Air Show got off to a thunderous start, as a line of violent storms blew through Le Bourget Airport just as the show got underway. The dark clouds gave way to a deluge that sent some showgoers running, while the well prepared simply popped open umbrellas and carried on. Later that day, the sun came out to smile on the opening of the 50th running of the iconic event.
