The euphoric mood of recent years has disappeared in the aviation industry. To make matters worse, there is the uncertainty drama , not only around the Boeing, but in the whole industry.
Largest International Aviation Exhibition
The aircraft builders also notice that. Both Airbuses recorded significantly fewer orders in the current year than in previous years. Even more than usual, the industry observers are looking for Europe, where the world’s largest aviation exhibition takes place annually – once in London and Paris. This year, it will be held from 17 to 21 June 2019 in Le Bourget.
It is an unmissable event that attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world at every edition; the general public as well as professionals. The fair brings together the world’s aviation and aerospace industry and is the industry’s oldest and largest exhibition.
The first days are reserved for trade visitors. The general public can then discover the latest technological innovations on the following days.
Strong Focus On Electric And Hybrid Aircraft
Really new in Paris, is the strong focus on electric and hybrid aircraft and autonomous flying, hardly visible at the last fair in Le Bourget two years ago. Now very different suppliers are trying their luck with their innovative ideas in this segment. The offer in Paris ranges from recently acquired US companies, now subsidiaries of Airbus and Boeing, who present somewhat misshapen aircraft for two or four passengers, with which they will soon be in a radius of about 50 -60 kilometers at up to 190-200km / h over the main areas. A major challenge for autonomous flying, as one Boeing manager for future programs puts it, “is that we not only have to redevelop the aircraft, but most of all the infrastructure in which these types of aircraft will travel in the future. “As little as it is clear how everything will look exactly, so are all industry representatives that mankind will begin in a decade or less, to make short hopes in large cities by autonomous air taxi.
