Farnborough and Airbus

Airbus’ full range of commercial and military aircraft will be on show at Farnborough and whilst the A380 will take part in the air display not so the much delayed A400M, only seen in the aircraft park.

Open to visitors during the trade days will be a customer A380, an Airbus A320 equipped with Sharklet fuel saving wingtip devices, an A319 Corporate jet, and the Beluga transport plane.  Airbus is part of EADS, all units of which are in a new centrally located 2,500sq m Pavilion (row OE13).  Here the multi-national company will focus on new and future programmes and include an A350 XWB cut-away model and movie theatre showcasing ‘efficiency’.

Airbus is also the headline sponsor of the Farnborough Innovation Zone and Future’s Day.  The Innovation Zone promotes inspiring R&T projects and a futuristic vision of a sustainable aviation sector in 2050 and beyond.

Airbus has always attracted some of the best talent from around the world, and this will be one of the themes of a special event on Thursday midday at the static display area.  Friday’s Future’s Day, is dedicated to the next generation that will shape the future of aviation.  A series of career workshops is also on offer. www.airbus.com
