You all know I love talking about, writing about and generally espousing the virtues of the increasingly modern commercial aircraft cabin. But when an air show strikes, I need to be able to jump out of my comfort zone and cover other parts of the industry, including defense, for Flightglobal.
Last week at the Farnborough air show, I had the chance to interview a Eurofighter Typhoon pilot. But even though this video has nothing to do with IFE or interiors (and falls squarely into the ‘light and fun’ category), I should note that Panasonic Avionics, Thales and Row 44 are all working on new in-flight connectivity solutions for the defense market. Check out Row 44 partner Hughes’ new ‘Airborne Comms on the Move’ video. Thales also had its defense offering on display at its Farnborough chalet.
Now there is where some real money lies….
