Crowded sky

A general view of non-commercial aircraft at LABACE (Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on August 14. Non-commercial aircraft are expected to carry as many as one in nine international visitors to the World Cup in Brazil next year by some estimates, but industry leaders say the country is unprepared for the oncoming swarm. Desperately needed new airstrips will not be ready in time for the tournament and air-traffic plans at crowded airports are still unresolved, said executives in Sao Paulo this week for LABACE, the world's second-largest business aviation conference.
