During the event there were a lot of Forum activities, Parachuting jumps, presentation of the new Aerospatiale Technology portal, several aeronautic activities like flight baptism, air exhibitions, and performance demonstrations.
There were permanent displays too, like Photography Exhibition, painting exhibition related with aviation, wind tunel, extreme sports and kid's play area.
