Join me for this exciting video detailing the 53rd Paris Air Show of 2019 from Paris-Le Bourget Airport! The Paris Air Show is quite simply the largest air show event in the world and has been held every other odd year since 1949. It attracts all of the major aircraft makers and representatives of the world’s major military forces. This year’s event occurred between 17th and 23rd June 2019.
Enjoy a stunning collection of footage with me of a diverse range of aircraft taking off and landing at the airshow including the Airbus A350-1000, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, the Airbus A330-900, the Profit Hunter Embraer E195-E2 and Embraer Preator 600 and the Beriev BE-200. I am also proud to share with you footage of a number of exciting military helicopters and aeroplanes including the Turkish Aerospace T129 Atak, the Embraer KC-390 and even a Pakistani fighter jet!
After this montage, I take a specific and detailed look at eight particular aeroplanes which were present at the Paris Air Show 2019:
1. The ATR72-600 aeroplane of the US airline Silver Airways (although it is not silver, but rather painted in a bright pink livery!) This plane is the world’s best selling turboprop aeroplane and I take great pleasure in exploring its insides with its great storage space and comfortable, 18 inch wide seats. Compared with competitors like Bombardier, ATR’s turboprop plane has the widest cabin space and also uses 40% less fuel than a comparable plane running on a jet engine. High wings ensure great “native in-flight entertainment” or as you probably know it better, passenger views!
I also take the opportunity to make use of a simulator which demonstrates the astounding utility and function of the ATR ClearVision ETS system. This system compliments the real vision of the pilot with added synthetic information in real time so that the pilot can clearly see the surrounding terrain or runway when landing, even when there’s low cloud or fog!
2. The Air Tahiti Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. I am interested to learn that this aeroplane has the largest passenger window of any commercial aircraft and the windows let you see outside, even when it’s dark! Air Tahiti celebrate local art and I am treated to a viewing of the painting “Tahitian Women on the beach” by famed French painter Paul Gauguin, painted in 1891.
I also meet with Boeing’s chief Boeing 787 test pilot and see the cockpit of the plane and its advanced LCD information screens and head up display.
3. The Air Asia Airbus A330-NEO. I see the fully flat, black and red seats of premium economy and the “hot seats” of economy class with extra leg room. I also see the crew rest area and the extensive rear galley for food preparation.
4. The Airbus A321-NEO of the French airline La Compagnie. This plane is single aisle and all 76 seats on board are business class. It is used for trans-Atlantic flights between New York and Paris.
5. The Airbus Vahana – A very high-tech plane which is the flying of the future! It is capable of vertical take off and landing and is 100% electric. It is a “personal air vehicle” for one, which is envisioned to be used by everyday commuters instead of cars or trains. Did I mention that it flies itself? Very cool!
6. The Mitsubishi SpaceJet M100.
7. The Airbus A350-1000 of Qatar Airways. Qatar Airways have recently introduced the “Qsuite” on these aeroplanes. Exclusive to business class, these pods allow a group of four people to interact in comfort, whether that be a two adult and two children family or four businessmen discussing their latest venture. I see the beautiful economy class of this aeroplane and the advanced cockpit – it’s no wonder Qatar Airways were crowned Skytrax airline of the year 2019!
8. The Dassault Falcon 6X – A corporate, long range private jet with an eye-watering price tag of $47 million US dollars. For this, you get stone and marble floors and the largest cross section in a business private jet ever – 104 inches wide and 6ft 6 in tall. A lounge and comfortable dining area await, with the lounge containing long seats which can join together to make a bed.
I had such a great time at the Paris Air Show and the weather was great too! Let me know what your favourite aeroplane was down in the comments and, as always, thanks for watching!
