  • ANALYSIS: What you will and won't see at 2015 Paris air show


    ​Paris is the undisputed queen of the air shows. The most venerable – the first was staged in 1909 – it is also by far the largest, with over 2,200 exhibitors and almost 140,000 professional visitors turning up to the 2013 event. The week-long bonanza – with four trade days – is not to everyone’s taste. Its sheer scale and location – on a business airfield in a down-at-heel suburb north of the city, often gridlocked during the week – mean getting into and around the show can be difficult. Humidity and frequent downpours can add to the discomfort. However, there is no doubt that the biennial event remains the place to meet and be seen for anyone in the aerospace industry.

    News | 22 May 2015 06:27 | Mike Gerzanics

    When Airbus conceived the all-new A350 XWB almost a decade ago, it did so after first attempting to create a challenger to the Boeing 787 based on its existing “big-twin”, the A330.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Flight-test-Airbus-keeps-family-faithful-with-A350-412426/

  • OPINION: Airbus delivers great wide hope; but what next?

    News | 06 Jan 2015 11:31

    ​A year ago, Airbus’s widebody strategy looked ragged at best. At one end of its offering, the A330 was a two-decade-old programme with a depleting backlog (its thirsty A340 sibling having already been killed off). At the other, the A380 was struggling to expand its appeal beyond Emirates. In the middle, Toulouse’s great hope was the A350. But while the -900 variant was selling well, the smaller -800 looked doomed.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OPINION-Airbus-delivers-great-wide-hope-but-what-next-407633/
  • OBITUARY: Jean-Paul Bechat, the industrialist who steered the Safran merger

    News | 03 Dec 2014 12:29 | Murdo Morrison

    ​The announced merger of state-controlled French engine maker Snecma and privately-owned defence electronics group Sagem 10 years ago may have been greeted by scepticism by analysts and been more about Gallic industrial machismo than smart business. After all, Safran, the seemingly unweildy conglomerate it created, made everything from photocopiers to unmanned air vehicles. The two seemed far from a natural fit.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OBITUARY-Jean-Paul-Bechat-the-industrialist-who-steered-the-Safran-merger-406666/
