Russian business aviation industry is relevantly young, it has 25 years, but within this period we have done a solid way. Now it’s the time to chronicle our success and be proud of the achievements. We have put a lot of effort to make the Award happen and I was very glad to see what a rush it created in the industry. I hope that next year we will see more participants in all nominations, both Russian and foreign”.

The masters of the awarding ceremony were Russia’s crowd-pullers Oxana Fedorova and Dmitry Kharatyan who demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the business aviation market. The official awarding ceremony came with a fantastic show: a faery laser show, fireworks, sand drawing under the touching words of a little girl who loves airplanes. The final of the evening was highlighted by a concert of Valery Syutkin, the major aviator of the Russian stage.
