SP's Aviation - - SHOW PREVIEW -

it has been held bian­nu­ally in Ber­lin/Bran­den­burg. In 2012 the Ber­lin Ex­poCen­ter Air­port was in­au­gu­rated. This is where, 25 years af­ter the fall of the Ber­lin Wall, the ILA will be tak­ing place from June 1 to 4, 2016. The ILA is co-or­gan­ised by the Ger­man Aero­space In­dus­tries As­so­ci­a­tion (BDLI) and Messe Ber­lin GmbH. For the first time ILA in­cludes a Startup Day that will give founders of new com­pa­nies the chance to net­work with key aero­space in­dus­try play­ers. More than 140 star­tups have ap­plied to take part. These will be rep­re­sented with their prod­ucts in the ILA Startup Area in Hall 6 and cover ev­ery area of the in­dus­try, in­clud­ing un­manned flight, the In­ter­net of things, so­cial net­work plat­forms as well as new busi­ness ideas. The Aero­space Ac­cel­er­a­tor Air­bus Bi­zlab will be of­fer­ing visi­tors a look at its ac­tiv­i­ties and will be rep­re­sented with star­tups such as Ter­aki and Syn­er­geti­con, for ex­am­ple. Other star­tups, in­clud­ing Ar­tiMinds Ro­bot­ics, eightyLEO, M2MGO and many oth­ers, prom­ise B2B so­lu­tions ca­pa­ble of pro­mot­ing dis­rup­tive trends. im­pres­sive dis­plays of in­no­va­tive prod­ucts on the ground and in the air, in­clud­ing the Blue­copter, which rep­re­sents a new tech­nol­ogy plat­form. The con­fer­ence on June 3, will be de­voted to new types of eco-ef­fi­cient tech­nol­ogy in he­li­copter con­struc­tion and flight op­er­a­tions and ar­eas of civil­ian and mil­i­tary use. For the first time, lec­tures and dis­cus­sions will ad­dress the lat­est he­li­copter-re­lated top­ics at the HeliLounge, which will pro­vide an out­stand­ing plat­form for di­a­logue and in­for­ma­tion.”

Lead­ing he­li­copter man­u­fac­tur­ers at the show are Air­bus He­li­copters, Bell He­li­copter Tex­tron Inc., Boe­ing and Siko­rsky Air­craft Cor­po­ra­tion. One of the tech­nol­ogy high­lights at ILA will be the pre­sen­ta­tion of the Blue­copter by Air­bus He­li­copters. With its com­bi­na­tion of in­no­va­tive, eco-ef­fi­cient tech­nol­ogy and a new he­li­copter de­sign, the Blue­copter paves the way for a lower-noise and more fuel-ef­fi­cient he­li­copter gen­er­a­tion of the fu­ture.

The US Air Force and Royal Air Force will be ex­hibit­ing a CH-47 Chi­nook and AH-64 Apache re­spec­tively in Ber­lin. The Boe­ing CH-47 Chi­nook is a tan­dem-ro­tor, heavy-lift he­li­copter. It is used mainly as a troop, ve­hi­cle, ar­ma­ment and equip­ment car­rier. The AH-64 Apache is a twin-en­gined at­tack he­li­copter, de­signed by Hughes Air­craft (USA) and cur­rently man­u­fac­tured by Boe­ing. In Hall 2 on Stand 232 Bell He­li­copter Tex­tron Inc. (USA) will be ex­hibit­ing a mock-up of its lat­est sin­gle-en­gined Bell 505 JRX (Jet Ranger X).
