After the excitement of attending the International Air Show recently, now seems the perfect opportunity to reflect on the show and highlight some of the key announcements and takeaways. Here are some of our highlights…

Orders

More than 400 fossil fuel-powered aircraft worth $15 billion were sold during the show as airlines stocked up to serve the world’s burgeoning demand for air travel, with a further $4 million order for Alice; the electric plane. 

The big winner at Paris Air Show with 250+ orders was from the Airbus A320NEO, with Air Lease Corporation (ALC), Saudi Arabian Airlines, Cebu Pacific, China Airlines (CAL), Flynas and Atlantic Airlines confirming orders. Find out more here

Consolidation of the Supply Chain

There was a clear message from larger primes and tier 1 OEMs looking to consolidate their suppliers. UK SMEs will have to work hard to improve competitiveness and innovation if they are to grow in scale as OEMs continue supply chain consolidation initiatives. Most interestingly, nations with smaller market shares are joining forces to sell ‘clusters’ of businesses to the big players as a way of staying competitive. ADS has considered the challenges SMEs will face as procurement evolves. Read more here.

First Came Propellers, then Jet Engines. Now the Electric Motor is Starting to REshape Aircraft 

Cape Air’s order of the first commercial electric airplanes drew particular attention. The Israeli startup Eviation Aircraft took a double-digit orders for their $4 million electric plane dubbed Alice. The aircraft can fly 650 miles (1,046 km) at around 500 miles per hour (805 km/h) with three electric motors on the tail and one on each wingtip. Find out more here.

Green Credentials

Aerospace Manufacturing’s vlog highlights an increasing emphasis on reducing impact on the environment. Ed Hill, Deputy Editor explains: “Many of the OEMs and engine makers are thinking of ways of developing new technologies, new aircraft and new fuels that will help to reduce CO2 impact”


Cross-Section Collaboration

Rolls-Royce’s plan to acquire Siemens’ electric and hybrid-electric aerospace propulsion activities accelerates its electrification strategy, Leonardo and Sapura’s joining forces on  cyber security and Premium Aerotec and Lockheed Martin collaborating on 3D printing; collaboration was king at this year’s event.
