The world's largest aeronautical event is about to take off. Airbus Helicopters' air show team previews some of the action to come on the rotorcraft side of this biannual event.
On the static display visit the H225M and the H135, plus full-scale mockups of our newest aircraft: the H145M and the H160, whose innovative Blue Edge blades are also on display at the CORAC (Civil Aviation Research Council) tent nearby.
Learn more about how blades in general are constructed at the Avion des Métiers exhibit, and then check out the X3 high-speed helicopter demonstrator next door at France's National Air and Space Museum. Finally stop by Clean Sky to see a mock-up of a High Compression Engine.
