TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Russia’s famous aerobatic demonstration team, the “Russian Knights”, will take part in the Iran Air Show 2016 scheduled to kick off tomorrow on the southern island of Kish, a report said.
"The flight personnel have currently started their flight to the Island of Kish where the air show will be held. During the re-deployment, two intermediate landings are planned," the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday as cited by the Tass news agency.
It added that the Russian pilots will demonstrate aerobatic maneuvers aboard four Sukhoi Su-27 planes, as well as paired and solo flying at the air show.
The 8th International Iran Air Show is slated for November 16- 19 on Kish Island with the participation of over 100 foreign companies, Director of Public Relations Department of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) Reza Jafarzadeh said earlier.
Companies from European and Asian countries, including Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Poland and Ukraine, have announced their readiness to participate in the international event, he said.
Since its inception back in 2002, the prestigious Iran Air Show has been known to attract high-level government officials and reputable senior corporate officials from neighboring countries.
The event represents a significant business opportunity for leading international companies who wish to invest in a multi-billion dollar market.
This year’s Air Show, according to its official website, will also feature two very high profile conferences known as the Iran Presumptive Aviation Leadership Summit and the Iran Five Year Business Projection Conference.
