  1. Hi Vishal, I am planning to visit Aero India 2015 on Saturday, I have a confusion, does buying the Visitors Exibition Area ticket (Rs 2500) allow me to visit the static display and the flying display area? Or for the flying display I need to buy a separate ticket (Rs 600)


    1. Hello Aatish,

      The Rs.2500/- Business Visitor Pass will let you access the static display area.
      I don’t think you can access the ADVA (Air Display Viewing Area) which is closer to the end of the runway as you have to alight almost 2 miles before Yelahanka AFB’s Main Gate to go to the ADVA which is for the Rs.600/- General Visitors pass holders.

      You can easily see the flying display from the Business Visitors Area


  2. Ok, thanks bro, I just booked the Business Visitor pass 🙂

    Btw, I saw your work on your website and I must say it is the best I have seen by a Indian photographer. Wish you good luck and more national and international fame in future.

    I am not a professional at photography but like others I too like watching and capturing military planes. I stay near the Lohegaon AFB, Pune.

    If you get some spare time, please see some of the pics I clicked at RIAT 2010/2011/ 2012 at this link



  3. Dear Vishal,

    I’m looking to photograph the flight display (Rafale in flight would be most interesting).
    Should I get the business (2500) or ADVA pass (600).

    Thanks – Gagan


    1. Hi,

      If all you’re looking to do is get some good aerial shots of the Flight Displays then ADVA is fine, infact you will also get good taxing shots of the aircrafts as they head to enter the runway if you’re near to the fence.

      Best of Luck – VJ
