Possibilities Abound at the Paris Air Show

June 16, 2015 | Author: Steven Brecken

With previous attendance records topping 300,000 people, 3,200 journalists, more than 2,000 exhibitors and numerous daily aircraft flying displays – the International Paris Air Show (PAS) was the place to be! For more than 50 years, this week-long event drew industry leaders from around the globe to showcase the latest and greatest technology innovations. This year’s show – June 15-21 – promised even more amazing statistics and engagement.

Honeywell has long been in attendance at the Paris Air Show. It is a great way to engage more directly with key stakeholders: customers, investors, and the media – with special activities for each. This year Honeywell focused on existing relationships while cultivating new ones.

Honeywell kick started its Paris events with a rare visit to Le Bourget by the B757 test bed aircraft. Aerospace’s Flight Test had been in the United Kingdom testing the new JetWave® satellite hardware for GX and made a one day stop in Paris to demonstrate how the company uses the aircraft to develop and test the latest avionics, engine and Wi-Fi technologies. Reporters from CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, Xinhua News Agency, Aviation Week, Flight International, and Aviation International News participated in the demo flight on board the company’s largest experimental aircraft.

Honeywell’s chalet was a beehive of activity each day with multiple customer meetings and media interviews packing the conference rooms and viewing decks throughout the day. Highlights for Honeywell included customer demonstrations of the Boeing®787, the Airbus®380 and 350 Xtra Wide Body and the Dassault®Falcon 8X business jet.

In the two-level chalet, more than 300 customer meetings took place. “We were eager to meet with customers one-on-one and provide detailed information on our investment in creating technologies that are modernizing passengers’ flight experience, getting them to their destination more safely, efficiently and more comfortably,” said Carl Esposito, Vice President of Marketing & Product Management.”

Honeywell continues to drive innovation throughout the aviation industry; and while we did not display products, we were able to showcase our latest offerings via virtual reality. We are building the future of aerospace today.
