AOPA HELLAS and the organizational committee of ICARUS 2010 would like to invite you to participate to the 2nd International Aero Expo of Athens ICARUS 2010 to be hosted at Tatoi Airfield (LGTT), Athens. ICARUS Aero Expo Athens 2010 is the only International Business and General Aviation Exhibition in Southern Europe.
Southern Europe is proving to be a rapidly developing aviation market thanks to the good weather conditions and to the recent enlargement of the European Union. The aviation world currently has the potential to advertise and dynamically penetrate to the surrounding market, based on Athens, the crossroads between East, West, and a bridge to Middle East.
In June 2008, AOPA Hellas organized ICARUS AEROEXPO 2008, the 1st International General Aviation and Business Aviation Exhibition in Greece, under the auspices of ΙΑΟΡΑ, the Greek Air force and the Ministries of Transportation and Tourism, and sponsored by the Ministries of Transportation and Tourism, ΑΝΤΕΝΝΑ Channel, AIRBP, the aviation press and many others. With more than 40.000 visitors, 60 exhibitors, representing 108 companies, 20 international seminar speakers, 105 airplanes from 12 countries of Europe and the Middle East, airshow with the participation of both civilian and military airplanes, ICARUS 2008 was a great success. It appealed not only to the aviation world but to the general public as well and rightfully gained the 3rd position among European Aero Expos
