Israel Aerospace Industries

  • This was our first time exhibiting at DSEI and it’s been a very useful place to meet with our current customers and suppliers. It’s been a well organised event and it’s been very efficient to see so many people in a short period of time. It was good to be part of the aerospace cluster at DSEI, and we hope the Aerospace Zone will grow in the future.
    Steve Patrick
    Vice President, Bombardier Specialized Aircraft
