On the 18.19. June 2019 CEO Bishop visited the Paris Airshow Le Bourget, to see what is new, and to meet existing, past and future customers (and of course the traditional stand parties on Tuesday afternoon). Compared to the Farnborough Airshow, the French had a hugely better show which was circa 30% larger. I believe there were 2400 stands to see.
I was very interested to see the Pakistani Navy ATR72 conversion, with torpedoes and special sensors – this is a project which my company invested a great deal of time, but we did not win the tender. Secondly, I was very interested to see some whacky designs for electric air taxis.
Unveiled at the show was the French/German/Spanish New-Gen Fighter – but unless Berlin can realign its views on defense exports the effort could be 0.
In the attached photos, please see some impressions of this highly successful show – which I would like to visit in 2 years time.
