Airbus all set to make a mark at Aero India this year

The Airbus Group will have a big presence at the five-day 10th Aero India show scheduled to kick off at the Air Force Station, Yelahanka here on February 18.

 From commercial and military aircrafts to helicopters and radars, the Group will take a two-pronged approach: Showcase its footprint in India and its commitment to the “Make in India” campaign.  

On display at the Group’s pavilion (no OD8) in front of Hall C, will be scale models of A380 and A320neo besides the A330MRTT mid-air refueller which has been selected by the Indian Air Force (IAF). Also seen will be the C295 transport aircraft which has been offered to India, in partnership with Tata, for the Avro replacement programme. Two ‘Made-in-India’ products – High Accuracy Air Pressure Measurement System and Structurally Integrated Antenna – will also be part of the display line up. Both these products have been developed at the Airbus Defence and Space Engineering Centre in Bengaluru. 

A model of the EC725, which recently underwent Field Evaluation Trials (FETs) for the Indian Coast Guard’s tender for 14 shore-based helicopters will be an exhibit as well. The EC725, fitted with the relevant weaponry and sensor suites, is designed to meet the Indian Navy’s 120+ Naval Multirole Helicopter (NMRH) programme requirements and the Indian Army’s 150+ Tactical Transport Helicopters’ fleet expansion plan. 

Models of the AS550 C3e Fennec and the AS565 MBe Panther will also be there. On the civil helicopter side, scale model of the single-engine EC130 T2 will be showcased. The other models on display include TANAN unmanned aircraft system, SPEXER 2000 border / coastal surveillance radar, MILDS missile warning system and TRS-3D multi-mode surveillance and target acquisition radar.Recruitment fair

On the last two days of the show, the Group will organize a recruitment fair at its pavilion for experienced aviation engineers. Airbus is looking for engineers with post-graduation or more for open positions in Avionics, Structural Analysis and Repair Approvals. HR representatives from the company will be available at the fair to meet interested candidates, review their CVs and guide them on the selection process.
