Airbus gears up for display at Aero India 2021

Airbus will showcase its technologies and services at the Aero India 2021 exhibition to be held in Bengaluru from February 3 to 5. The display will include Airbus’ products along with its customer services and training capabilities. A section will be dedicated to highlight the company’s strategic local industrial partnerships focused on developing a sustainable aerospace ecosystem in the country.

A scale model of the C295 – medium transport aircraft – will be on display while there will also be a digital display of the A330 MRTT – Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft.

Among helicopters, there will be scale models of the H225M – the combat-proven multi-role helicopter and the AS565MBe Panther – the all-weather, multi-role force multiplier. A special attraction will be the S850 Radar on a digital platform, a high-power satellite offering extensive SAR capabilities, including the monitoring of a high number of targets with frequent revisits and enhanced performance in a single pass.

The United Kingdom is keen to collaborate on India’s future combat aircraft programme.

British Deputy High Commissioner to Karnataka and Kerala, Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford, on Thursday said that the UK has held constructive discussions with India on future combat aircrafts and seek potential cooperation on systems and subsystems.

“We believe that the UK has a major role to play in the LCA MK2 and AMCA fighter programme. We are also partnering with India on an advanced core-tech study with a potential to develop an indigenous jet capability,” said Pilmore-Bedford. 

He also said that his country is looking for collaboration in the field of Maintainance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) in the civil aviation sector.
