Lt. Gen. Desgroux delivered the final guidelines to all the staff working for FIDAE.

Lieutenant General Jean Pierre Desgroux Ycaza, Logistics Command Commander and FIDAE President, inspected the Fair this Monday March 28th by the facade of the Administrative Building of the International Air and Space Fair, FIDAE, one week before the beginning of the 22nd edition of this exhibition, to check progress and to fine tune any final details of the longest standing and most recognized Air, Space, Defense and Security Exhibition in Latin America.

Similarly, during the general formation line and after the Chilean flag hoisting ceremony, General Desgroux shared a few words with all the staff currently working for FIDAE, stating that "this event is organized by the Air Force, which is characterized for contributing to national development," also pointing out that its implementation means a true contribution to the country.

"This year the fair will be completely different compared to previous versions, considering that FIDAE 2020 had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. Despite the difficulties we have faced, nearly 400 exhibitors and 40 countries have already confirmed their participation, which reflects how important FIDAE has become worldwide and how trustworthy it is for those who gather together for six days around this event," he added.

In light of the meaningful scope of FIDAE, General Desgroux encouraged everyone to step up efforts and to continue doing a job of excellence, so the Chilean Air Force, through FIDAE, can remain perceived as a world-class event, providing status to the Institution and to Chile.

The International Air and Space Fair will be held from April 5th to 10th on the north side of the Arturo Merino Benitez Airport, in Santiago, Chile.
