Having participated in Saudi Airshow, held for the first time on March 12-14 in Riyadh, Roketsan attracted great interest to its booth where its state-of-the-art products and systems were on display.

Among the senior delegations visiting Roketsan were Ambassador of Turkey to Saudi Arabia Erdoğan KÖK, Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority Defense & Aerospace Industry Directorate and many delegations including Poland and Bahrain.

Held under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Faisal Bin Bandar Al Saud, Governor of Riyadh Region, and with the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Sultan Bin Salman Al Saud, Chairman of Saudi Space Authority Founder and Chairman of Saudi Aviation Club, the inaugural Saudi Airshow saw 14,750 delegates representing 57 countries converge at Thumamah Airport, Riyadh.

A total of 75 aircraft populated the static display, representing the full spectrum of aviation, with single person ultra-light machines sitting alongside an impressive selection of helicopters, a mixed selection of business jets of all sizes, and commercial airliners including Etihad’s Boeing 787, and Saudia’s Airbus 320 and Boeing 777-300, which as sponsors of the international Formula E circuit were decked out in a special livery showing its commitment to the environmentally friendly grand prix circuit.  The world’s largest commercial airliner, the Airbus A380, was also displayed.

The military sector was also well represented with Lockheed Martin and Airbus Defence & Space all showing a strong presence. Education, training and commercial organizations showcased their services alongside fuelling companies, maintenance repair and overhaul companies to make up some of the 267 exhibitors. Business aviation was out in strength too with Gulfstream displaying its G500 and G650 aircraft while Embraer showcased its Legacy 500 model. 

Following the Saudi International Airshow, Roketsan has put its cutting-edge products and capabilities on display during LIMA Fair, which was held in Malaysia, Langkawi from 26 to 30 March 2019.

Roketsan booth attracted great interest during the fair where its indigenous and national weapon systems were presented to many senior delegations, including Turkey, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Pakistan, Japan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, China and Indonesia.

Since then, the company has launched various unique projects and the rate of domestically developed projects and products has reached 87%.
