ILA: A320 with Sharklets on show for the first time in Germany
Airbus will showcase a large number of new developments at this year’s ILA Berlin Air Show, including the A320 with Sharklets for the first time in Germany.
Also present at Schönefeld will be a customer A380 and the Airbus Beluga transport aircraft in a special livery. The A400M will also be on static and flying display, contributing to a major EADS exhibition of the use of its products in humanitarian operations. In addition, the C295 will be present at the show with the Polish Air Force.
The EADS Pavilion in row 7-14 will focus on new and future aircraft programmes and include an A350 XWB cut-away model and a movie theatre showcasing ‘efficiency’. Other models include the A320neo and the C295 in Airborne Early Warning (AEW) and Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) configurations.
Airbus will push the boundaries of virtual reality by allowing some lucky winners from the visiting public to experience virtually flying an A320. For current and future talents, a series of career workshops will be held throughout the week to discuss opportunities at Airbus.
