Dubai Airshow 2021 has launched a dedicated startup hub, VISTA - the ultimate platform for innovators, creators, and market disruptors to display the latest technologies and play a part in accelerating the future of the aerospace and defense industries.

Taking place from 14 – 18 November 2021, VISTA in partnership with Boeing will connect startups with venture capitalists who are looking for disruptive new entrants that can accelerate the growth of the aerospace sector. The event will be attended by national leaders, CEOs, investors, developers, technology disruptors, operators, and other key experts. Successful entrepreneurs from established global startups will also be present to inspire and guide aspiring teams.


VISTA will feature over 80 startups that will receive a chance to participate in a number of sub-events including mentorship programs, workshops and high-level networking with key decision-makers and global investors. Commenting on his startup’s participation in VISTA, Co-founder of SARsat Arabia, Ahmed Alzurabi highlighted “We are delighted to be taking part in Dubai Airshow 2021 and have the opportunity to display our technologies to the wider industry. We look forward to receiving high-level guidance from significant mentors in the field, to support us in achieving our goal of using cutting-edge Earth Observation satellite technologies to help improve life on Earth.”

Mohamed Shawky, the Founder and CEO of GeoDrones Aerial Services startup in Dubai added “Our startup aims to provide superior quality drone commercial services as we see a great potential in drone technologies. We have a wide range of innovative ideas that are key for achieving a major transformation in the aerospace industry and we look forward to presenting these innovations to key experts in the field.”

Maximillian Buerger, Founder and Managing Director of Aviationfly startup commented“Exhibiting at the Dubai Airshow was an easy decision for us – the event will most likely be the largest aviation industry event of 2021 and the meeting point of aviation leaders from around the globe. Aviationfly is a United Arab Emirates headquartered startup, which, similar to the Dubai Airshow connects different stakeholders in the aviation industry – our focus being the global pilot training ecosystem. The pandemic has significantly affected our industry but we used it as an opportunity to diversify our activities and are excited to be launching a new platform in time for the event in November.”

VISTA will include startups from 12 different sectors, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Future Mobility, Software, Space, Aerospace, Material Science, Cyber Security, Defence, Tourism, Robotics, Drones, and Sustainability.
