The first-ever Kuwait Aviation Show is slated for Jan. 10 to 20. XTI Aircraft Company said it has accepted a “special invitation from Kuwait representatives” and plans to exhibit the one-third scale model of its TriFan 600.

“The show will also target the private/charter aviation industry,” said Robert LaBelle, XTI’s CEO. “With Kuwait boasting one of the highest [gross domestic product] per capita in the world, and one of the most well-travelled populations in the world, the opportunities are great for private jet and charter suppliers to promote their services and become more familiar with the TriFan 600.”

XTI said the Kuwait Aviation Show would be the fourth major trade show for the company in the past seven months. Most recently, XTI attended the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. Following the event, XTI announced it had booked over 60 orders for the TriFan.

“We see the Kuwait show as the next major opportunity to attract customers and investors,” said LaBelle.
