Jean Pierson, who passed away on November 3, 2021, devoted his professional life to the service of the French, and subsequently, European aerospace industries. He is known for participating in the Concorde programme and contributing to the development of Airbus, which set the company on the path to integration and success.
Airbus, Dassault Aviation, ONERA, the French Ministry of Transports and Safran have launched the first in-flight study of a single-aisle aircraft running on unblended sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Airbus has launched Airbus Scale, a new innovation unit that brings together corporate innovation, startup engagement and company building activities.
In the first major airshow since the COVID-19 pandemic struck two years ago, customers demonstrated confidence in the recovery of the aviation sector and also in Airbus by placing orders and commitments totalling 408 aircraft (269 firm orders and 139 commitments). The agreements covered the full range of commercial aircraft families, including a first commitment for the A350F freighter derivative.
