Aciturri is participating since Monday in the International Fair of Aeronautics and Space Paris Air Show, which takes place in the French capital until next Sunday June 23rd.
During the first day, the Minister of Defense, Margarita Robles, and the General Secretary of Industry and Small & Medium Enterprises, Raül Blanco, visited our stand.
The minister's visit took place, as part of her greeting to the different Spanish companies participating in the fair, after signing the Spanish incorporation to the european FCAS (the Future Combat Air System) project.
A mock-up of the new warplane which aims to replace the current fleets of European combat aircraft in 2040, was presented this morning in an act chaired by French President Emmanuel Macron, accompanied by the German, French and Spanish Defense ministers.
According to the statements of Robles to El País, the project will represent "a key change from the point of view of the Armed Forces (...) and the Spanish industry", since Spain will participate "in 33% of the technological projects".
For this, after the signing of the framework agreement today, will start the integration process of the Spanish industry in the "joint concept study" already underway, as well as in the different work packages of the technological demonstrators.
