47th International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget
The 47th Paris Air Show promises to be an outstanding event, as the industry’s key players, including manufacturers, subcontractors and SMEs, have already confirmed their participation. Over 200,000 trade visitors are expected and, as always, the Show will be a great success on the days it is open to the general public.
This year will see the Show’s first Business & Technology Forum devoted to B2B meetings. At a time when large manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing are subcontracting most of their production, it is important for subcontractors at all levels of the supply chain to be able to promote their expertise.
The 2007 Paris Air Show will bring together almost 2,000 exhibitors in a packed exhibition space: apart from the essential Rotonde housing aircraft manufacturers and Hall 1/2 with, as usual, the Western European national pavilions, Hall 4/5 will for the first time welcome large international companies (such as Rolls Royce, UTC, Goodrich, etc.) and will include an area dedicated to SMEs grouped according to European region (for example South West France, Hamburg and Andalusia, as well as national pavilions for the rest of the world). Hall 3 traditionally remains the American pavilion, while Hall 6 will be housing the Business & Technology Forum this year.
This Show will present the world’s newest aircraft, including the Airbus A380, the Boeing 777, Bell AG’s BA609 (on show and flying for the first time at an exhibition), Ukrainian and Russian aircraft, Embraer’s and Bombardier’s regional aircraft to name just a few. Business aviation will of course be represented by Dassault and its Falcon 7X, as well as by Gulfstream, Raytheon, Piaggio, Pilatus, etc.
Military aviation will play a significant role with the Rafale, the A330 MRTT, the F-18 and F-16, the MiG-29 OVT, while the world’s leading helicopter manufacturers will also be present: Eurocopter, AgustaWestland, etc.
The space sector will be well represented with large delegations from ESA and French space agency CNES as well as French manufacturers and Russian players in this event.
