Defence Connect to deliver essential Avalon insights

Defence Connect to cover Avalon Airshow 2017

The much anticipated International Airshow Avalon 2017 today kicks off at Avalon Airport, Geelong, Victoria, with Defence Connect there ready to deliver all the action as it happens.

Avalon 2017 will showcase products, technologies and services from Tuesday to Friday before the public airshow and exhibit commences on Saturday.

Defence Connect will be there to bring you all the latest in news, announcements and conferences.

Director of Defence Connect Phillip Tarrant said the event is an excellent opportunity to deliver great exposure to the industry.

"Defence Connect will be there to drive media exposure to the industry at Avalon and to market industry intelligence with daily news stories and podcasts available from our website," he said.

"Defence Connect endeavours to transform the way in which defence and industry connect, and our presence at Avalon will do just that."

Two Joint Strike Fighters (JSFs), AU-001 and AU-002, will make their debut at Avalon 2017 before returning to the United States via RAAF Base Amberley, allowing Australian pilots to continue their training.

AU-001 and AU-002 have been based at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, since late 2014 as part of the International Pilot Training Centre.

The JSFs will be alongside the RAAF's first Boeing EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft at Avalon 2017.

Avalon 2017 will also showcase modern drone technology for the first time in the event's history, along with many other products and partnerships from industry leaders and newcomers.
