Official: Iran to Present Commercial Drones in Aviation Exhibit on Tuesday 

TEHRAN (FNA)- Managing-Director of the Iranian Aviation Industries Organization (IAIO) Manouchehr Manteqi announced that the country plans to present its home-made commercial drones in the 7th Air and Aviation Industries exhibition on Kish Island, the Persian Gulf, on Tuesday.

"The commercial drones designed by the private sector will be presented in the 7th Air and Aviation Industries Exhibition in Iran," Manteqi said in a press conference in Tehran on Saturday.

Explaining that UAVs and drones used to be only used for defensive purposes, he said now drones are also used for commercial, such as delivery, purposes and such drones will be extensively presented in the exhibition which is due to kick off work on Kish Island on Tuesday.

"The private sector has gained self-sufficiency in building commercial drones and at present the technology for building drones in Iran has become indigenized," Manteqi said.

A large number of Iranian and foreign companies are due to take part in the international aviation industries exhibition on Kish Island on November 18.

"100 Iranian and foreign companies will participate in the biennial international air and aviation industries exhibition on Kish Island," Spokesman of the Exhibition Ali Mohammad Khanmohammadi said on Wednesday.

Noting that the exhibition has so far been held 6 times, he said the exhibit is one of the most creditable exhibitions in the field of air and aviation industries.

Khanmohammadi said that displaying the capabilities of the Iranian air and aviation industries in the fields of passenger and cargo transportation and paying more attention to the expansion, renovation, updating and economical use of the country's airports as well as infrastructures and laws are among the goals pursued by holding the exhibition.
