Powervamp has once again been awarded the unique contract to supply ground power to the oldest, and most prestigious, airshow in the world – the Paris International Airshow held at Le Bourget airport.
The contract is to provide ground power to all aircraft on display in the static park for the duration of the show. The airshow runs from Monday 19th to Sunday 25th June, although Monday to Thursday are classed as ‘trade’ days, Friday is reserved college and university students and the weekend is general admission.
The Paris International Airshow alternates each year with the Farnborough International Airshow, (which was also powered by Powervamp earlier this year), and is the 8th time Powervamp has been awarded the contract.
The event is the world’s largest and oldest air show and was established in 1909. Presidents, prime ministers and royalty are regular guests and one of the major purposes of the events is to demonstrate military and civilian aircraft to potential customers. Major aircraft sales contracts are often withheld, only to be announced by manufacturers during the show.
With more than 2,300 exhibiting companies, the 2015 show not only posted record visitor and business numbers, but also stood out for the numerous new events designed for both professionals and the general public, including “The Careers Plane”, presenting all the jobs in aviation, and “The Sky of Tomorrow” – a genuine overview of environmentally-friendly aerospace research.
