Airbus will be one of the largest exhibitors at Avalon 2019 with a presence covering its entire range of products and services, including commercial and military aircraft, helicopters, and unmanned and space applications.

The air show will be held at the Avalon Airport in Geelong, Victoria, from 26 February to 3 March.

At the exhibition hall, the Airbus stand (#1M16 in Hall 1) will feature scale models of the new A350-1000 long-range airliner, the H145M twin-engine helicopter, the C295 maritime patrol aircraft, and the new-generation Eurostar Neo communications satellite.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to experience the capabilities of various Airbus products via the latest augmented and virtual reality HoloLens applications. These will include a tour of the new A330neo mid-size widebody, the H145M fitted with the HForce weapons system and a specifically tailored Taipan MRH-90 Multi Role Helicopter.

Highlights at the air show include cutting-edge Airbus military aircraft such as the Royal Australian Air Force A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT), as well as a Royal Malaysian Air Force A400M transport aircraft (pictured).

Visitors will also be able to get up close to the Australian Defence Forceís Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (ARH) and the Taipan MRH-90.

 Also on static display will be two versions of the versatile twin-engine H135 helicopter - one in a corporate configuration and the other equipped for medical services.

In a dedicated exhibit near to the static display, Airbus will also showcase Zephyr. This new solar-powered stratospheric High Altitude Pseudo Satellite is currently undergoing trials in Western Australia. The exhibit will focus on Zephyrís unique capabilities and applications for missions including maritime surveillance, real-time bush fire management and geo-mapping, as well as its ability to enhance connectivity in remote regions of the world.

The Pacific region is a key market for Airbus. Customers from the region have ordered over 300 commercial and military aircraft and more than 600 helicopters from the manufacturer. The company also has a major industrial presence in the region via its Brisbane-based subsidiary Airbus Australia Pacific.
