Together, let’s take a new take off!

All of the aerospace’s mobility fields are coming together against climate emergencies.
Big groups, supply-chain, start-ups, and all of the actors of the sector have put ecology matters at the top of their to-do lists for the Paris Air Forum’s 10th edition, which is matching the 59th anniversary of the Paris Air Show. A shared goal : to conceive a new generation of carbon-free mobility in order to enable the whole world to take-off again. This scientific, technological and industrial revolution – awaited by all – is highly expected by developing countries. For a large majority of our planet’s inhabitants, it is not about a choice but more about an absolute necessity to ensure the future of its territories or maybe just the survival of sheltered-from-all-solidarities areas. A situation aggravated by the climate crisis, and for which aeromobilities are the only solution. This key and tangible evolution of the players of the field has been made possible thanks to the widespread awareness that the Paris Air Forum, edition after edition, led every step of the way.

For ten editions, the Paris Air Forum gathers, figures out, analyses, debates; turning the ‘PAF’ into a major rendez-vous for everyone involved in the field like the press and the speakers as well as the public. As a real meeting and interaction place, it enlightens the role of aerospace as the backbone of international industrial dynamism thanks to its capacity to innovate, to create sustainable solutions which will spread and benefit all of our societies.

 

This is the breath of fresh air that we wanted to bring center stage on the occasion of this 10th anniversary, about a ‘manifesto’ theme: ‘together, let’s take a new take off’. With the firm belief that in order to overcome the continuous crisis, a thoughtful convergence is needed between technology and consciousness, between progress and emergency. All of this forms the anniversary substance of the 2023 Paris Air Forum that will be held at ‘Maison de la Mutualité’ in Paris on June 16th, the Friday before the opening of the largest aerospace event in the world : the Paris Air Show.
Max ARMANET – President of the scientific council of the Paris air forum
