The Spanish Ministries of Defence and Interior have ordered 36 Airbus H135 helicopters. This signature takes place in the context of the stimulus plan activated by the Spanish government to support the industry.
The ECLIF3 study, involving Airbus, Rolls-Royce, German research centre DLR and SAF producer Neste, marks the first time 100% SAF has been measured simultaneously on both engines of a commercial passenger aircraft – an Airbus A350 aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.
The latest test flight of an A350 operating on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) has mobilised DLR’s Falcon 20E to capture and analyse in-flight data. Flying within 100 metres during the test campaign, the two aircraft are already delivering invaluable insight, the preliminary observations of which point to the positive impact of SAF on aircraft emissions.
Airbus Helicopters has delivered the first H225M in naval combat configuration to the Brazilian Navy. Stationed at the naval base in São Pedro d'Aldeia, the aircraft will boost the Brazilian Navy’s mission capabilities including anti-surface warfare and maritime surveillance.
Images of devastation and flooding…helicopters dropping winches to rescue people from the roofs of their houses. This is what life looked like during July for many in the German regions of North Rhine Westphalia and Rhineland Palatinate.
Airbus has performed the first long-haul demonstration of formation flight in general air traffic (GAT) regulated transatlantic airspace with two A350 aircraft flying at three kilometers apart from Toulouse, France to Montreal, Canada. The aircraft were greeted at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport. Over 6 tons of CO2 emissions were saved on the trip, confirming the potential for more than a 5% fuel saving on long-haul flights.
Airbus will showcase a wide range of products, cutting-edge technologies, services and innovations that are leading the way to a sustainable future for aerospace at the Dubai Airshow 2021 from 14-18 November. The Company’s presence at the airshow will be in strict accordance with COVID-19 protocols set by the UAE Government to ensure the safety of employees and visitors.
The first in-flight study of a single-aisle aircraft operating on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) has taken off. In doing so, the aviation industry inches one step closer to certification of 100%, unblended SAF for commercial use by 2030.
