PIONEERING SUSTAINABLE AEROSPACE FOR A SAFE AND UNITED WORLD

 

For decades, the Farnborough International Airshow has been a leading global platform for the aerospace, defence and space industries, where Airbus presents its latest innovations, products, and services, and reveals new aircraft orders and partnerships. This year, the show carried an even greater significance for Airbus being the first major event to reconnect in person with our colleagues, partners and media from around the world, enabling business growth and recovery. It was also the first real opportunity to physically showcase our ambition to decarbonise aviation.

COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT


In commercial aviation, which connects and unites millions of people each day across the globe, our most modern portfolio was spearheaded at Farnborough by the A350 together with the A220 – both of which were featured in the static display. This was the opportunity to appreciate the common design principles and advantages between the two aircraft families – both being the only new-generation products available in their respective market segments. At Farnborough these two aircraft types were displayed in customers’ livery – ITA A350-900 and airBaltic A220-300 respectively. Meanwhile, in the flying display, our A350-900 MSN002 flight-test aircraft was put through its paces every day during the week.

DEFENCE AND SPACE


In the Static Display, some of Airbus’ state-of-the-art military aircraft took centre-stage: Visitors were able to see a Royal Air Force A400M airlifter and the multi-role tactical airlifter C295. Meanwhile, in the Airbus Tent, visitors were able to study a variety of large scale models such as: the A400M; the solar-powered Zephyr Unmanned Aerial System (UAS); as well as Skynet 6 military communications and OneWeb Internet satellites. A demonstration there also showed how the Multi-Domain Combat Cloud (MDDC) will enhance defence power in the future. Over in Hall 4, at Airbus’ Space Zone, Airbus Defence and Space also presented models of its cutting-edge space systems, including a Skynet military communications satellite and the Aeolus weather satellite.

Airbus Helicopters offers the full spectrum of solutions for civil, government, military, law enforcement and parapublic uses. From its extensive range of rotary-wing products, visitors to the Static Display were able to see ‘up close’ the H175M – made in the UK and a ‘super-medium’ class aircraft suited for longer range missions and a multitude of support roles; an H135 – Airbus’ light twin-engined helicopter in a law enforcement configuration; and an H145M full-scale mock-up – a modern and versatile helicopter that offers a wide range of tactical options. Meanwhile, in the adjacent Airbus Tent there were scale models of CityAirbus NextGen - Airbus’ electrical vertical takeoff and landing vehicle designed for zero emission flight, the VSR700 – a multi-mission navel unmanned aerial system (UAS) currently under development as well as the NH90 - the modern, multi-role NATO standard helicopter in its tactical transport (TTH) version. Also present were Airbus Helicopters Support & Services representatives who showcased the new HCare S&S offer, which matches customers to the best combination of services according to their profile and fleet make-up.
Ushering in the next generation of CityAirbus, the fully electric vehicle is equipped with fixed wings, a V-shaped tail, and eight electrically powered propellers as part of its uniquely designed distributed propulsion system.
