With a special flight program, the e-flight flying display, and the e-flight expo in Hall 7, the focus on electric aircraft will be even stronger and more comprehensive than before. Attention will also be given to other special theme areas such as Avionics Avenue, the Engine Area and the UAS Expo/Aerodrones for civilian drones and unmanned aircraft.
