Thursday the 6th of May saw the close of EBACE 2010 which by all accounts was very successful.
The main story of this year’s exhibition was the growing optimism within the private jet sector of the aviation industry which is being fueled by increasing demand for business jets within the $25m category. Even the various proposed new supersonic jet projects are gaining momentum with talk that we may actually see one built within the decade!
Client wise, Bombardier is forging ahead with the development of the new Learjet 85. Currently, tooling and production processes are being finalised and the first model should be ready at the end of the year. The Learjet 85 will continue to deliver the outstanding performance, technology and value Learjet aircraft owners have come to expect. The Learjet 85 is the first all-composite structure business jet too!
Also, Bombardier has just opened its first wholly-owned European service centre at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. The facility features 4,240 sq. meters (45,639 sq. feet) of hangar space, includes a staff count of approximately 50 and is equipped to perform a variety of maintenance tasks.
The next big aviation exhibition is the Farnborough International Airshow 2010 on the 19th of July through to the 25th. There will be the usual mix of commerce, networking, displays and entertainment. Design Inc will be in attendance throughout providing marketing support and assistance to our exhibiting clients with the set up and display of the exibition stands and show literature we’re currently designing for them. Hopefully see you there!
