$US17 BILLION DEALS IN OPENING FOUR HOURS
OF 15TH DUBAI AIRSHOW

Emirates, Boeing, UAE Ministry of Defence all reveal high ticket deals
Dubai, UAE. November 12, 2017: Dubai Airshow 2017 opened its doors at DWC, Dubai Airshow Site today, Sunday November 12, to a record number of exhibitors, aircraft on display, visitors – and an array of ground-breaking deals.

 

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, opened the 15th Dubai Airshow before taking a walking tour around the 645,000 square metre site, pausing to speak with several exhibitors.

 

He was accompanied by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces; and Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

 

His Highness then joined officials from Emirates airline and Boeing to witness the signing of a US$15.1 billion commitment to purchase 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners. Emirates is already the world’s largest Boeing 777 operator and the airline will be first to receive the new 777X in 2020.

 

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive Emirates airline and Group, said: “Emirates’ orders today will be delivered from 2022, taking the airline well into the 2030s. Some of these will be replacements so that we maintain a young and efficient fleet, and others will power our future network growth. We see the 787 as a great complement to our 777 and A380 fleet, providing us with more flexibility to serve a range of destinations as we develop our global route network.”

 

“It has always been Emirates’ strategy to invest in the most advanced and efficient aircraft, and today’s orders reflect that. Today’s announcement also speaks to our confidence in the future of aviation in the UAE and the region.”

 

The 787-10 Dreamliner is the newest and longest member of the super-efficient 787 family. Boeing says it offers 10 percent better fuel and emissions than competitive aircraft in the sector, and some 25 per cent better fuel efficiency per seat and emissions than the aircraft it is replacing.

 

Emirates also unveiled what it’s branding a “game-changer” in the first class travel market. The Dubai-based carrier’s upgraded 777 fleet will see the introduction of the world’s first fully enclosed private suites, described by president Sir Tim Clark as akin to “a six-star hotel room” in the sky.

 

Inspired by Mercedes Benz, the new six-suite first class cabin features leather seating, hi-tech control panels, mood lighting and floor-to-ceiling doors, as well as face-to-face screen-based cabin crew contact, food delivery hatches to protect client privacy and virtual ‘windows’ in the central suites of the 1-1-1 configuration.

 

The first aircraft in the fleet, flown into Dubai Airshow from Seattle for the unveiling, will shortly begin flying on the airline’s Brussels and Geneva routes, with plans to expand throughout the network as an additional seven or eight refurbished 777-300ERs are completed, before the new look is adapted for the upcoming fleet of next generation 777x.

The UAE Ministry of Defence revealed an order book of more than US$1.77 billion, including the purchase of 60 Lockheed Martin F-16s. The order book includes new deals for international and local companies, including Abu Dhabi Aviation, Thales, Augusta Westland and Global Aerospace Logistics.

 

Dubai-based flydubai unveiled its brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8, the first of 76 ordered from Boeing, all of which will be delivered by 2023. Six of these will join the flydubai fleet by the end of 2017.

 

flydubai Chairman, His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, said: “[This] is another milestone in Dubai’s aviation success story. The efficiency and enhanced performance this aircraft promises is going to play an important role in the new chapter of flydubai’s growth strategy.” The new Boeing 737 MAX 8s will initially be deployed on the furthest points on flydubai’s network, including Bangkok, Prague, Yekaterinburg and Zanzibar.

 

Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of show organisers Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East, said, “The Dubai Airshow has always been the place for the industry to meet and do business, and to see new product launches and industry innovations. The first few hours of 2017 have shown demonstrated this to still be the case and we look forward to what the rest of the week will bring.”

 

More than 72,500 trade visitors and 1200 exhibitors are expected across the event’s five-day run, representing the entire spectrum of the aerospace industry.

 

The Dubai Airshow takes place 12-16 November at DWC, Dubai Airshow Site and is open to trade visitors from within the aerospace industry. Visitor tickets can be purchased from www.dubaiairshow.aero and are valid for the full five days.

PILOT TRAINING AND RETENTION CENTRE STAGE AT GULF AVIATION TRAINING EVENT

 

   Inspiring and funding the next generation of aerospace professionals a key challenge for the Middle East

 

Addressing challenges in the recruitment, training and retention of both pilots and engineers will be key to the future success of the Middle East’s aviation industry, according to the experts present at day one of the Gulf Aviation Training Event (GATE), a dedicated conference which took place on day two of the Dubai Airshow today.

The programme kicked off with a panel discussion on airline training developments, examining how the Middle East region intends to stay ahead of the industry curve, featuring speakers from across the Gulf aviation training industry.

Education funding, the panel noted, is a key concern for the industry with airlines now less likely to pay high fees to train pilots they then risk losing to competitors. “Look at the amount of money a person would have to pay today to become a pilot. It’s a large sum. Ten or 15 years ago, the airlines themselves would have paid for that,” noted Osama Al Sayed, Head of Business Development at GAA. “Now they’re shying away from doing that and that leaves us with a challenge we need to address.”

Changing the way we train, however, could have wide-reaching impact, Mr Al Sayed explained. “Training now needs to be customized to industry need, that’s absolutely the way forward, with more on the job training needed.” National development funds, he added, were one way to address the gap ensuring that in future airlines have easy access to well trained professionals at the time they are needed.

The conference heard how Mubadala is looking to inspire the next generation of engineers and operational professionals by expanding its education programme into even earlier school years. The Abu Dhabi-based investment firm now runs programmes designed to interest youngsters in the aerospace and engineering fields from all the way through from pre-school to university age, taking professionals into schools to offer real world examples of the benefits of a career in the field.

Meanwhile, Pierre Wannaz, an A380 pilot and advisor to CEFA, explained that as pilots increasingly enter the field directly from training, rather than from traditional military routes offering previous flight experience, ensuring educational programmes adequately prepare entry-level pilots for real-time reactions is key. Highlighting yesterday’s launch of his company’s Aviation Mobile Services (AMS) technology, a software solution which basically allows pilots to review an animation of their flight immediately on landing via tablet, he explained: “Such animations would normally take days or weeks to produce and often rely on crew recollection of what happened – now AMS cuts that out.”

The animations will increase pilot awareness, safety and training, offering high-fidelity visualisations of landing, take-off and other flight moments derived from actual flight recorder data within minutes of landing. The system can also help pilots analyses unusual conditions and landing patterns, in line with the industry desire for better evidence-based training technologies.

Speaking about GATE, Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of organizers Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East said: “The future success of the aerospace industry depends hugely on the recruitment, training and retention of talented pilots, engineers and operational professionals. It relies just as heavily on providing them with the most up-to-date tools and technology available. In the opening hours of GATE, we have seen how, by bringing together the greatest minds across the training and technological fields, we can continue to ensure that the Middle East remains ahead of the global curve.”

The Dubai Airshow ends on Thursday, November 16, and this year includes a number of new features, including a zone dedicated to Space, the UAS Summit, Cargo Zone and Airport Solutions.

UK AND UAE LAUNCH JOINT VENTURE AT DUBAI AIRSHOW

Host of groundbreaking deals unveiled on opening day

UK Secretary of State for International Trade, Dr Liam Fox, today witnessed the signing of a groundbreaking new joint venture between the UK and the UAE, as the Dubai Airshow 2017 opened its doors and immediately facilitated a host of major business deals.

The agreement, between target manufacturer QinetiQ and Middle East General Enterprises will see the UK-based firm invest in the development of both infrastructure and training capability designed to enable a new Emirati workforce to provide the skilled manufacture of maritime, land and air targets, both for use by the UAE armed forces and for export around the wider region.

Managing director international at QinetiQ, Ian Farley, said: “For us, this is a real statement of intent to invest in the UAE to transfer knowledge so that we can hire new recruits and develop local Emiratis to be able to do skilled jobs related to the assembly, test and supply of a target service to the armed forces here in the UAE. It’s the way that we want to build business going forward, where we make investments in local markets in partnership with local companies that we feel provide us with enduring capability.”

“This is going to be an Emirati business, it’s primarily for this market and the technicians and engineers that are going to be building this product are local. However, this is not just a business for the UAE, nor is it just a regional export opportunity. This is an integral part of our target business globally.”

The joint venture was the latest in a series of far-reaching deals agreed on day one of the event at DWC, with more than US$17 billion in sales agreed in just the first four hours of opening.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, was joined by his son, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and officials from Emirates airline and Boeing to witness the signing of a US$15.1 billion commitment to purchase 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners.

Commenting on Dubai Airshow 2017’s opening day, Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of organisers Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East, said: “The Dubai Airshow has always had truly international appeal, attracting exhibitors from 60 countries this year. To see international agreements, especially those that bring investment to the UAE, being signed here on day one proves the value of the show.”

More than 72,500 trade visitors are expected across the event’s five-day run, representing the entire spectrum of the aerospace industry.

The Dubai Airshow takes place 12-16 November at DWC, Dubai Airshow Site and is open to trade visitors from within the aerospace industry. Visitor tickets can be purchased from www.dubaiairshow.aero and are valid for the full five days.

DUBAI AIRSHOW 2017 WELCOMES INDUSTRY FIRSTS AND INNOVATIONS

   Global aviation sector chooses Dubai as launch platform for new technology

Dubai Airshow 2017 opened yesterday with a magnificent fly-past: the first time two Emirates wide body aircraft – the Boeing 777-300ER and A380 – have performed a flying display together. The aircraft were closely followed by the UAE’s air display team, Al Fursan. Both the Emirates 777-300ER and A380 flying display aircraft were decorated with the HH Sheikh Zayed decal as a tribute to the late founding father of the UAE.

The Emirates aircraft were operated by a flight deck crew of four UAE National captains. Piloting the Boeing 777-300ER was Captain Ahmed bin Huzaim and Captain Ali Salahi, supported by First Officer Marti Gonzalo. Commanding the A380 was Captain Abbas Shaban and Captain Saeed Al Maktoum, supported by Captain Patrick De-Roeck.

Meanwhile CEFA Aviation, the pilot training and flight safety company, chose the Dubai Airshow to launch its Aviation Mobile Services (AMS), a software solution described by CEO Dominique Mineo as “a revolution in pilot training.”

Pierre Wannaz, an A380 pilot and advisor to CEFA, present at the launch, explained that pilots increasingly confronted by adverse weather conditions, time pressures and higher density traffic at airports. On top of this “Everyone on the aircraft is focussed on a single task, it’s hard to get a global view of what’s happening.” Capt. Wannaz welcomed the AMS system, which basically allows pilots to review an animation of their flight immediately on landing via tablet.

“Such animations would normally take days or weeks to produce, and often rely on crew recollection of what happened – now AMS cuts that out,” said Capt. Wannaz.

The animations will increase pilot awareness, safety and training, offering high-fidelity visualisations of landing, take-off and other flight moments derived from actual flight recorder data within minutes of landing. The system can help pilots analyse unusual conditions, landing patterns, with different aircraft controls – and training.

CEFA’s safety and flight data monitoring systems are used by more than 80 airlines globally, but this is the first time the system has been made available to individual pilots.

As a first-time exhibitor at Dubai Airshow this year, 100 per cent Emirati company Atlas Aerospace, the new aerospace arm of Atlas Group, is proudly displaying its next–generation digital training device – a universal flight simulator, a digital training device fully made of touchscreens and flight controls; an innovative mission computer system that can integrate as many sensors as needed on a rotary wing aircraft; and the world’s first airborne certified two-channel networking radio, the Harris Multi-channel Airborne Networking Radio.

Ahmed Siddiq Al Mutawaa, Chairman of Atlas Aerospace, said: “As a leading local aircraft integrator of equipment and sensors in the UAE and the GCC, we are excited to demonstrate at the Dubai Airshow what Atlas Aerospace can deliver to help boost and support the ongoing contemporary industry transformations at the local and regional levels.”

Dubai Airshow 2017 features more than 1,200 exhibitors – including 100 taking part for the first time – and 159 aircraft on display during the show.

Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of organisers, Tarsus F&E LLC, said: “The Dubai Airshow continues to be a platform for new technology and industry firsts – whether it’s the incredible fly-by we witnessed this afternoon to mark the opening of the event, new pilot training and safety schemes, or new forms of communication, the world aviation sector has its eyes firmly set on Dubai and the UAE this week.”
