Airbus prepares for Dubai Airshow 2017

The European manufacturer will show aircraft, helicopters, satellites and will carry out demonstration flights.

One of the main aeronautical events of the year is about to begin, the Dubai Airshow 2017, which will take place between November 12 and 16. The event is held every two years since 1989 in the Dubai World Central complex of that city, in the United Arab Emirates.

For this edition, Airbus will participate with commercial aircraft, military aircraft, helicopters and space systems.

In the exhibition areas there will be numerous Airbus aircraft, such as the A250-900 that will also carry out a demonstration flight, and also the business jet ACJ319ceo developed in association with Comlux.

The European manufacturer will also exhibit aircraft such as the new generation of the A400M and the EADS CASA C-295 Transport and Mission, already within the field of defense and space.

The spacecraft section will have a full range of satellites, including SES-12, a highly flexible and powerful telecommunications satellite. Attendees at Dubai Airshow will also be able to obtain information about the Zephyr, a high-altitude pseudo-satellite (HAPS) that operates exclusively with solar energy.

Airbus has other surprises reserved for the event, such as the new Airbus A330neo Airspace and some special virtual reality equipment that will allow attendees to “fly” through the international space station, experiment with the H160 helicopter, sit inside the cabin of the A400M while driving on rugged terrain or exploring the airspace from inside the cockpit.
