At the Singapore Airshow, Asia's largest aerospace event, it is not just commercial planes that are on display but a variety of military ones too.
According to defence publisher IHS Jane's, the Asia-Pacific is the only region to have seen military spending grow steadily since 2008.
As a result, companies such as Bell Helicopters - which makes the V-22 Osprey aircraft - is keen to tap into Asia's growing defence market.
Currently only the US Marine Corp use the V-22, but the company is keen to attract new customers in the region.
The BBC's Puneet Pal Singh got on-board the aircraft to get first-hand experience of its capabilities.
