AIRBUS Aero-notes   A380 – a modern icon
AIRBUS Aero-notes
 Following a review of its operations, Emirates is reducing its A380 orderbook by 39 aircraft. As a consequence of this decision and given the lack of order backlog with other airlines, deliveries of the A380 will cease in 2021.
Former CEO Tom Enders said: “Keep in mind that A380s will still roam the skies for many years to come and Airbus will of course continue to fully support the A380 operators.”
In March, Japan’s All Nippon Airways took delivery of its first A380. Each ANA A380 will feature a special livery depicting the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, also known as the Honu.

AIRBUS Aero-notes Urban Air Mobility (UAM): on the path to public acceptance
AIRBUS Aero-notes
A century ago, nobody ever would have imagined so many aircraft in the sky at any given moment. But today, our skies are busier than ever: current air traffic has quadrupled in the last 30 years and is set to double in the next 15.
But how ready are people to see their sky filled with even more aerial vehicles – of various shapes and sizes – zipping around above their heads?
A recent preliminary study on UAM public acceptance addresses that very question.

pre-determined ‘aerial corridors’ to vessels as far as 3 km from the coast.
