The Habibi Group Guide to The Paris Air Show

The Paris Air Show is one of the world’s earliest air shows put on every two years by the French Aerospace Industries Association (FAIA) taking place in the city’s northern suburbs. This event is perfect and ideal for one who has passion and love for aviation and all things that fly. Over 150 aircraft display the latest aerospace technology to more than 350,000 attendees. The show has been taking place in June for 53 years now. The event is open to Trade visitors and the General Public.

Some of their most remarkable aircraft in attendance include the Airbus A220, A350-1000, A380, Boeing 787-9, and HondaJet. The biggest factors that set these apart from one another would be design and performance. The HondaJet for example features unique wing mounted engines, having them sit uptop where they usually would. A well known rivalry between Airbus and Boeing grabbed most attention at the 2019 Paris Air Show but it was new technology that dominated behind the scenes. Better efficient technology is important, as aviation currently accounts for about 2.5% of global carbon emissions. In effort to fight this worldwide problem, some of these new inventions include hybrid engines, urban mobility vehicles, and autonomous flight systems at the annual event. Investment Bank UBS estimates sales of hybrid engines to be worth around $178 billion by 2040, with the electrical takeoff around $285 billion business by 2030.

This creates business opportunity left and right for established aero-companies to team up with tech firms Intel, Amazon, and Siemens. This would eventually make air travel cheaper and more eco-friendly for everyone, in addition to saving 30% more fuel. Israel has already made an all electric plane, named “Alice”. Alice is designed to fly up to 650 miles per hour, producing exactly zero emissions whatsoever.

While out in such an area of the world, it’s important to check some of the best, and most renowned restaurants in Le Bourget.
