Located in the south-west suburbs of Paris, the Elancourt site focuses on intelligence, secure and satellite communications, C4ISR, maritime and cyber security, as well as on-board space and defence electronics, all of which contribute to making Airbus the European leader in defence, space and security and the No. 1 defence supplier in France.

Paris Le Bourget

Around 650 people work on the Paris-Le Bourget site in Dugny (next to Le Bourget airport, near Paris), within this Center of Excellence specializing in the production of rotor blades and research on materials composites. Interns on site have the unique opportunity to have access to all services, thus being able to quickly acquire knowledge about the division's activities and projects.

Manufacturing some 3,000 blades per year and repairing almost half of them, the site is an essential link in the Airbus helicopter production chain, whose ambition is to become the world reference in blades.
