Airbus Defence and Space is demonstrating a mock-up of the Pléiades Neo satellite. A four-satellite, high resolution earth observation constellation ideal for precision mapping and in-depth intelligence, but also particularly suitable for emergency response and up-to-daily change detection. With an industry-leading collection success rate, Pléiades is the unanimous choice for new collections and timely decision-making, affordable even in the most inaccessible locations.
“An Innovation Journey with Airbus” is displayed on the stand featuring some of the most innovative projects the company is working on and that will eventually change the way humans travel, connect and interact.
The static display will feature an A220-300 (an airBaltic aircraft), which is the newest member of the Airbus single-aisle Family. The airBaltic A220-300 will fly to Chengdu on 8th November as part of its world demonstration tour after its display at the show.

Always ‘ready for duty’, the H145 is capable of being equipped with a modern mission management system suitable for a variety of missions, especially for police operations, EMS, and SAR.
In addition, an H135 with the latest medical interior and Airbus’ latest generation Helionix avionics suite (also available on the H145, H160 and H175), which increases safety and decreases pilot workload, is displayed in the pavilion of United General Aviation Industrial Development Co.
