With less than two weeks until the start of the inaugural Saudi International Airshow,  organisers have announced that AMMROC, has joined the growing line up of sponsors for the new event.  Headquartered in Abu Dhabi, UAE, Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Centre (AMMROC) is a leading provider of military aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services across the South Asia, Middle East and North Africa (SAMENA) region supporting  more than 35 fixed and rotary wing aircraft types.

As a joint venture company owned by Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC), Lockheed Martin Corporation and Sikorsky Aerospace Services (A Lockheed Martin Company) the AMMROC participation demonstrates the value of the Saudi Airshow in connecting the international aviation and aerospace industries with Saudi Arabia.

With the addition of AMMROC to the sponsorship roster organisers are also confirming that  some 80 aircraft are booked for the static display, more than 200 exhibitors are signed up, and registrations stand at over 13, 000 representing visitors from some 50 countries. Situated just outside of Riyadh, Thumamah Airport, the 2019 show will connect the world’s aviation experts and industry players to Saudi Arabia. The event has been organised in response to a huge demand from leading regional industry professionals and will be the first in a series which will take place over the next five years.

Saudi International Airshow, which will debut from the 12th to the 14th of March 2019 at Thumamah Airport, Riyadh, will be the first aviation & aerospace exhibition of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Exhibitors and delegates from across the world will be welcomed to Thumamah Airport which will be dedicated solely to the exhibition.
