Bauhaus Luftfahrt convinced participants at the ILA Berlin Air Show 2016
After its successful trade fair appearances in 2012 (“Ce-Liner”) and 2014 (“Propulsive Fuselage”), again at this year’s ILA Berlin Air Show, Bauhaus Luftfahrt attracted the attention of important trade visitors and the wider public.
In collaboration with twelve students from Glasgow School of Art, 25 scientists from Bauhaus Luftfahrt have developed a well-matched airport and aircraft concept: “CentAirStation” and “CityBird”. Their mission statement: New inner-city airports and new aircraft operating regionally between these new inner-city airports and conventional airports will contribute greatly to solve major air transport challenges in 2040 and beyond.
More details related to “CentAirStation” and “CityBird” can be found here.
At the stand of its industrial partner MTU Aero Engines (hall 2, no. 301), Bauhaus Luftfahrt illustrated its concept based on a model in scale 1:200 as well as two animations in 3D and 360 degrees.
Federal Minister of Transport Alexander Dobrindt (CSU), Federal Minister of Defence Ursula von der Leyen (CDU), Brandenburg’s Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD), and Bavaria’s Minister of Economics Ilse Aigner (CSU) were among the guests of Bauhaus Luftfahrt.
