Aerospace 2006

Wednesday was an early start to make it up to London for the Royal Aeronautical Society's Aerospace 2006 conference. Today was the Sustainability day, and featured speakers from around the world focussing on how we are working together to minimise the impact of aviation globally and locally. We were exhibiting as part of our Future Flight Greener by Design project, trying to show everyone what we've been up to over the last year. The winners are being notified very shortly, and will be receiving fantastic prizes and a VIP tour of the Airbus factory in Filton, Bristol. It was a very fascinating day, and we have some new partners coming onboard Future flight which we'll be announcing soon!
