Saint-Cloud, France, 4 June 2019 – Dassault Aviation is particularly proud to present its dual civil and defense know-how at the 53rd edition of the International Paris Air Show at Paris-Le Bourget from June 17-23, 2019.
The Dassault Aviation stand will be located in Hall 2A, position 251. The display will include mockups of Falcon, Rafale, special-mission Falcon, ATL2, UAVs, future aircraft and space vehicles, accompanied by information panels, video screens and showcases describing our activities. A “Rafale Inside” space will offer visitors a virtual reality experience. The stand will also describe our environmental protection work.
The static display will feature the Rafale, Falcon 8X, 900LX, 2000S/LXS and the Falcon 6X cabin. There will also be a special exhibit, with a simulator demonstrating the operational capabilities of the Rafale. Dedicated high tech areas will focus on Customer Support.
Every day in the early afternoon, the Rafale flight demonstration will be performed by the French Air Force, while the Falcon 8X demonstration will be flown by our test pilots.
Dassault Aviation will take part in the fourth edition of the “Careers Plane” and the Employment and Training Forum. These events will allow people interested in a career in aerospace to watch demonstrations and explore career opportunities directly with our engineers, technicians, production line specialists and recruitment personnel. In 2019, we are recruiting 1,000 people in all sectors of activity (design, production, support, digital).
Dassault Aviation will also be present in the Paris Air Lab innovation zone, where our specialists will coordinate the “Big Data & Artificial Intelligence” exhibit: pilot decision-making aids (MMT advanced study program); Big Data applications in civil and military maintenance; Big Data visualization using a digital twin.
Finally, Dassault Aviation will welcome to the show a number of partners which it supports under its charitable actions:
