Undeniable showcase for the aeronautics and telecommunications industry and its actors, the Paris Air Show once again encountered a real success and welcomed a record number of Exhibitors with more than 2,450 companies present. A place ideal for opportunities and meetings, it was as ever an extraordinary platform for trade, with over $140 billions’ worth of orders placed.

Visitors could also admire the 140 aircraft on Show, 36 of which on flying displays. Lastly, the event consolidated its international dimension, with over 300 Official Delegations present, and visits from France’s President and the great majority of the French government.
MGM COMPRO had the honor to be a part of the whole thing. Topics of our presentations were obvious – we believe in electric aviation using our complex propulsion systems in various applications such as e-VTOLs, LSA, drones and others.
Paris’ audience was very welcoming and receptive to messages of us and our partners. It is very interesting to see electric propulsion becoming one of the primary topics of aviation worldwide and this year’s Paris Air Show really proved that.
It was our honor and pleasure to witness this event and we really look forward to next venues.
In recent months, our engineers have been working intensively on the development of the first Czech electric utility vehicle – named elZebra – which is being developed by the Zebra Group based in Pardubice, Czech Republic. The electric car, which prides itself for adhering to the highest ecological standards, is just entering the market at a price comparable to its diesel version.
We are excited to announce that one of our significant partners – Dufour Aerospace – bring great news for electric aviation field. The reason is completion of going trough first testing phases of their tilt-wing e-VTOL called aEro 2.
