International Paris Air Show 2013
Clean Sky was present at International Paris Air Show, the greatest international event dedicated to the aviation and space industry.
In close cooperation with integrated technology demonstrator (ITD) leaders and with the support of the european commission, Clean Sky offered a rewarding experience to those who visited the Clean Sky stand (Hall 2 - Stand 2B -106) and attended our conference programme (Hall 2C).
Clean sky showed tangible results of the environmentally friendly technology that our organisation has generated since its start back in 2008. Clean Sky offered visitors the chance to see a wide array of hardware such as an open rotor mockup, an open rotor composite blade, a wing flap, a mockup of the upcoming A340 flying test bed for laminar wing, a helicopter diesel engine as well as a performing power electronic model, an ice detector sensor and an air intake. Not least, we displayed a selection of brand new eco-design samples. Those objects represent cutting–edge technology developed to help meet by 2020 the environmental goals set by ACARE. They have been tested and evaluated and will be part of the performing aircraft of tomorrow.
The stand also offered extensive visual and printed information on Clean Sky, our supporting membership, our technological priorities and objectives. Not least the Executive Director Eric Dautriat and the team of Project officers guided visitors through the details of the pieces of work on show.
In addition to the stand, Clean Sky organised three thematic conferences (upon invitation only) :
- 19 June (9.00-11.30): Clean Sky 2: The Future ahead
- 20 June (9.00-11.30): Eco-Design for sustainable aviation
- 21 June (9.00-11.30): Technology Evaluator: Main facts and figures
Further a presentation of Eurocopter new high compression engine for light helicopters took place at Clean Sky Stand. Two sessions were organised: 19 June 14.30-15.00 and 20 June 14.30-15.00.
