The Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the Defence Exhibition Organisation (DEO) are all set to review the preparations for the 10th edition of Aero India 2015 scheduled to be held at the Air Force Station (AFS) Yelahanka, in Bengaluru, from February 18-22, 2015. With 58-year-old Manohar Gopalkrishna Prabhu Parrikar taking charge as India's full-time Defence Minister, the 36th individual to head the top ministry, sources confirm to OneIndia that ‘new vision' for the air show will be out soon. Going by the tone of the officials, it is clear that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ‘Make in India' dream will get a major boost during the show.
With just 100 days to go for the plane carnival, the officials are eager to capture the vision of Defence Minister Parrikar. "This time we have been given a free hand to brand Aero India and transparency will be the key. The policy change and the mindset of the government so far has been clear that the show should be meaningful highlighting India's strengths in defence and aviation manufacturing. Officially the show will be called as ‘10th International Show on Aerospace, Defence, Civil Aviation, Airport Infrastructure and Defence Engineering.' The launch of the logo will be held soon after the new minister settles down," a senior government official said.
