The 10th International AEROINDIA 2015 show opened on the 18 of Februray 2015 at the Yelahanka Air Force Base. Mr Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, inaugurated the mega event AEROINDIA 2015. The highlight of the inaugural ceremony was the stress on the theme 'Make in India' in the aerospace, defence, civil aviation, airport infrastructure and defence engineering. Prime Minister Narendra Modi making a strong pitch to end India’s dependence on defence imports, promised a conducive environment for manufacturers, including a discrimination-free tax system, and asked foreign firms not to be just “sellers” but “strategic partners”.

The event spread across 2,50,000 Sq.Mts. in Yelahanka Air base, Aero India attracted a large number of visitors from India and abroad. AEROINDIA 2015 has surpassed all previous records with a total participation of 49 countries through 328 exhibitors and 295 Indian exhibitors.  The show held from February 18 to 22 was an air extravaganza for lakhs of Bengalureans and outsiders. By footfalls,  Airshow  attracted 5 lakh visitors, the biggest Indian show ever. The air show had static and air display by various aircraft including fighter, transport, helicopter and aerobatic display teams. HAL’s Light Combat Helicopter (LCH), Light Combat Aircraft (LCA)-Tejas were on display at the event.  The aircraft participating in static and air displays were the  Indian Air Force Sarang Team and air display teams from Sweden, UK, Czech Republic and open sky jump by USA Special Forces were  among the major attractions.

A breathtaking display of air power and brilliant aerobatics by fighter jets and helicopters enthralled the audience where famed international aerobatic teams left the crowd awestruck with their death-defying stunts. In the skies a tiny Tiger Moth, the vintage aircraft that was once used as primary trainer aircraft for the Royal Air Force during World War II and was also the basic trainer aircraft in the IAF initially,  followed by India’s Light Combat Aircraft Tejas which pulled off some stunts. Another Indian product that amazed all was the Light Combat Helicopter made by state-run HAL. Its reverse flying, a feature uncommon for conventional helicopters, was much appreciated along with its maneuvering skills. The wing walkers from Sweden left everyone stunned as two girls did aerobatic feats on board a flying plane.
