The biannual event last took place in 2021, and was one of the first global air shows held following the coronavirus pandemic.

The Dubai Airshow trace's its history back to 1986 when it was called Arab Air, a small civilian air show. It has since grown to host over 1400 exhibitors, 180 aircraft, and 120,000 visitors.

Aventure Aviation has participated in every Dubai Airshow since 2003, while individual team members have attended since 1989.

The World Wide Review started in 1987, while Aventure has attended every year since the establishment of its military division in 2010.

"The show was very well attended," commented Amyr Qureshi, Aventure's Senior Vice President. "TCG is always a great opportunity to showcase our services and technical support capabilities to many C-130 end-users in one place."
