On May 23–25, Palexpo in Geneva will become the podium for business aviation from all over the world – EBACE 2023 will open its doors to visitors.

This year, both sellers and buyers have a lot of interest in this exhibition. Manufacturers will try to impress the visitors with a wide variety of new vessels. Dassault’s new luxury twin-engine 6X flagship, already heralded as the best-seller in its class, will be the highlight of the show. The company has promised that the new jet will feature a radically new interior design. Dassault’s other new product, 10X, is also drawing much attention worldwide. For this very reason, a whole cohort of French senior executives will come to Geneva to once again prove to customers that this line is exceptional.

North American manufacturers are also going to have their hands full in Geneva. Gulfstream Aerospace will showcase its mega-long-range G700 with a brand-new cabin. There are speculations of a first live demonstration of their latest G800. Canadian company Bombardier will bring its Global 7500 as a static exhibit, but it’s also sure to amaze us all with new information about the Global 8000 project. And, of course, the static exhibits will feature the legendary Challenger and Global ranges in their entirety.

The Swiss manufacturer Pilatus Aircraft always makes a very powerful performance on its homeland exhibits. The tremendous success of PC-24 and PC-12 provides ample opportunity for these two popular platforms to develop further. This exhibition will be no exception.

When it comes to Embraer and Cessna, they always present many aircraft at the same time. The Brazilians will bring their top-of-the-line Phenom and Praetor ranges, while the American company will showcase Longitude and the new Gen2 family. The extravagant HondaJet Elite II and SF50 G2+ from Cirrus Aircraft will also be present – few will turn down the pleasure of climbing aboard.

The two giants, Airbus and Boeing, are going to challenge each other, presenting their NEO and MAX aircraft. Out of this rivalry, true masterpieces of business aviation are born, with each liner being a true work of art and technology. Let’s see how these two companies are going to surprise us this time.

Helicopter manufacturers are following right behind their colleagues. Airbus Helicopters, Bell, and Leonardo are going to present their creations, which are more akin to modern sports cars with their luxury interiors. Without a doubt, the newest Airbus H160 is going to be a hit.

This year, EBACE expects to see an influx of brokers working in the secondary market segment. This means that there will be a huge number of planes and helicopters that you can buy without waiting for a new aircraft to be delivered.
