The Washington Times Daily - - Business - From wire dis­patches and staff re­ports.

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMI­RATES | Tucked near the back of one of the world’s largest air­shows is a mod­est pavil­ion for the state of Florida, where a hand­ful of busi­nesses are try­ing to get a piece of the bil­lions be­ing in­vested in the avi­a­tion in­dus­try by wealthy Arab gov­ern­ments.

Fac­ing stag­na­tion and even eco­nomic down­turn back home, 11 Florida com­pa­nies are hawk­ing avi­a­tion equip­ment and train­ing ser­vices at the Dubai Air­show, lo­cated in a sprawl­ing Ara­bian desert site that will soon be home to the re­gion’s new­est mega-air­port.
