Welcome to the 49th Paris Air Show, possibly the largest aviation event of 2011.
It has more than 2,100 exhibitors, 140 aircraft, 138,000 professional visitors and 200,000 members of the general public coming to admire the largest aviation exhibition in the world and the daily flying show.
Once again, we will also be spectators to the latest episode in the trade war between Airbus and Boeing, and between other manufacturers, many of them from emerging countries, each one more and more determined to win their share of the market.
The show is also an opportunity for an update on the latest technology and research for more environmentally friendly aviation.
All of these area are featured on our web page.
