European aircraft manufacturer Airbus will showcase A400M, the new-generation military airlifter, at the upcoming Singapore Airshow to take place at the Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore, 6-11 February.
The A400M Atlas was designed specifically to meet the needs of European NATO nations, as well as the requirements of international air forces. Powered by four modern turboprop engines that drive state-of-the-art eight-bladed propellers, the A400M is capable of cruising speeds of up to Mach 0.72 and reaching altitudes of up to 37,000 ft/11,278m. The aircraft at the show is operated by the Royal Malaysian Air Force.
Completing the line-up will be two of the company’s most popular helicopters – the H130 and H135. These single and twin engine rotorcraft offer unrivalled efficiency in the light-medium category for a wide range of operations, including public utility, tourism and private or corporate transportation.
Airbus will also organise several media briefings during the show covering the commercial, helicopter and military aircraft markets, the fast-growing MRO and services business and unmanned aerial systems.
The Spanish Air Force has taken the delivery of second of 27 A400Ms turboprop military transport aircraft from Airbus. The Directorate General of armaments and Material (DGAM) delivered the aircraft to the Spanish Air Force at the Airbus factory in Seville, the defense ministry reported Friday
Leonardo has announced a contract on Sunday, signed with the UK Ministry of Defence, to provide equipment that will simulate radar threats to the RAFs new A400M transport aircraft prior to take-off. By simulating threat radars while the aircraft is still on the ground, commanders will be able to ensure that the complex defensive aids suite fitted to the A400M will function correctly during flight and can, therefore, make an evidence-based decision on whether or not to commit to a mission in hostile territory
Airbus is considering slowing down the production rate of the A400M military transport aircraft to lengthen activity at the final assembly line in Seville and gain time to get new customers. The company has a backlog of 174 aircraft and has delivered 46 units, ABC De Sevilla reported Saturday
