Selangor Aviation Show 2021 – Overview

Selangor Aviation Show 2021 – Overview

Selangor Aviation Show 2021 is the first ever airshow brought together by the Malaysian State of Selangor through Invest Selangor Bhd. and its dedicated aerospace division, S-DAICO. It is being held at the Skypark Regional Aviation Centre, Subang between November 25th and 27th, 2021. The Selangor Aviation Show 2021 is an event dedicated to business aviation, general aviation and helicopters.

Malaysia’s premier aviation event – LIMA, held in Langkawi every two years was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the Selangor Aviation Show was a much needed boost at least for the business/general aviation sector in Malaysia.

The main exhibitors during this edition are Embraer, Dassault Aviation, Bell Helicopters, Piaggio Aerospace, Turkish Aerospace & Robinson Helicopters.

The star of the show is the Embraer E-195 E2. This aircraft adorned in the “Profit Hunter” colours is an eye-catcher wherever it visits, and it was the same here.

As mentioned earlier, the Selangor Aviation Show 2021 was a great opportunity for the general aviation sector to network and display the latest on offer after nearly two years of disruption caused by the pandemic.

Merdeka Day 2015 – Action at Subang

August 31st is Merdeka Day – Malaysia’s Independence Day. This national day sees a huge parade at the Merdeka Square in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, followed by a flypast of Malaysian Air Force (TUDM) fighter aircraft, transport and trainer aircraft and helicopters.

The fighter aircraft fly in from their respective bases around Malaysia, whereas the transport aircraft take-off from the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport, also known as Subang airport (SZB)

This year, the aircraft that flew in from SZB comprised of two TUDM Lockheed C-130 H Hercules transporters, nine Pilatus PC-7 trainers and for the first time ever – the newly delivered gigantic Airbus A400M Atlas.

I caught these aircraft as they departed from SZB on a hazy morning in Kuala Lumpur. Enjoy the photos…
