The air show being organised by the Defence Exhibition Organisation, Ministry of Defence (MoD), Government of India and managed by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) at the Air Force Station in Yelahanka, the seventh edition will see more than 500 firms (300 international and 200 Indian) with participating countries such as Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Israel, Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Spain, Ukraine and the United States.

A strong participation from the Defence Public Sector Undertakings (DPSU) viz, Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is also expected at the exposition.

Aero India 2009 apart from displaying more than 100 military and civil aircrafts will also showcase the latest in the field of military and civil aircrafts, vital components for aircraft engines, use avionics systems and sub systems in the aviation industry, airfield radars and new age technologies used in the defence sector at exclusive chalets.
A seminar on aerospace technology will precede the expo on February 9 and 10, 2009.
