BANGALORE: The city will play host to a wide range of aircraft as the country’s premier airshow Aero India kicks off at the Yelahanka Air Force Base next Wednesday.

Business deals worth crores are expected to be sealed during the first three days of the five-day event. However, for the common man, there is a lot of fun to be had over the weekend. This year, Aero India promises four aerobatic teams which will take to the skies to provide an exciting display of flying skills.

There are two kinds of passes being sold this year. Access to the visitors’ exhibition area can be gained by paying `2,500 and registering online. According to the organisers, the general public will have access to this area only on the last two days of the show. However, the pass does not permit entry to the air display viewing area.

For people interested in aerobatics, access to the air display viewing area will cost `600 and the timings for the display will be between 1 pm and 5 pm on February 18 and 9 am to 5 pm on other days. However, people holding these passes will not be allowed into other areas.

The general visitor’s pass will be valid for one entry on any day. All visitors will have to compulsorily bring a government-issued identification to enter the Air Force base and those who registered online will also have to carry proof of payment and registration ID.

Teams participating this year include the Saarang Helicopter team, Flying Bulls from Czech Republic, Aero Super Batics and Yakovlevs. More information can be accessed at www.aeroindia.in.
