Innovations at EBACE

Some of the world’s most advanced, efficient and cutting-edge business aircraft, along with the most forward-looking innovations in advanced air mobility (AAM) will be on display at the 2024 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2024) in Geneva, Switzerland.

Taking place from May 28 to 30 at Palexpo and Geneva Airport (GVA), the event is co-hosted by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA).

Included among the dozens of aircraft on display at Geneva Airport will be Piper Aircraft’s M700 Fury turboprop single (making its EBACE debut), the Airbus ACJ TwoTwenty business jet, a newly certified Gulfstream G700 (operated by Qatar Executive) and five aircraft from Textron Aviation, including the flagship Cessna Citation Longitude Jet and the Beechcraft King Air 360.

The Dassault Falcon 6X is making its first EBACE appearance since receiving Federal Aviation Administration and European Union Aviation Safety Agency certification.

For the first time ever, the outdoor aircraft display will feature an AAM aircraft, with VoltAero’s Cassio hybrid-electric aircraft making its EBACE debut.

Inside Palexpo, Lilium will unveil for the first time its full-scale jet as part of the manufacturer’s largest EBACE presence to date. The Lilium Jet, an all-electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft with zero operating emissions, represents a significant advancement in sustainable aviation.

Also inside, the show floor will feature the Airbus Helicopters ACH160, billed by its manufacturer as the “quintessential ultimate helicopter”. The convention floor will also feature an Innovation Pavilion where several pioneering companies will display their models.

EBACE Innovation Pavilion inside the Palexpo will host several pioneering AAM companies, including:

Beyond Aero: Beyond Aero’s ONE is the first electric business aircraft designed for hydrogen propulsion. The company recently completed France’s first manned flight powered entirely by hydrogen-electric technology.

Electron: The Rotterdam-based company manufactures a 100% battery-powered aircraft for regional use and it is developing an all-electric cargo plane.

Hydroplane Limited: The California company is developing a modular hydrogen fuel cell for general aviation, Urban Air Mobility and vertical lift aircraft.

Vaeridion: The company, based in Munich, has developed highly efficient electric-powered “microliners” that it plans to begin operating before 2030.

“Innovation is always front and centre at EBACE, and this year is no exception,” said Rachel Clementi, EBAA Conference and Innovation Lead. “There is perhaps no better example of game-changing innovation underway in business aviation than with the advent of electric, hybrid and hydrogen propulsion systems for aircraft. EBACE2024 is proud to feature the latest of these pioneering technologies poised to enter the market.”

In just the past few years, AAM technologies have advanced from vision to reality, putting the industry on course to deliver a new era of emissions-free flight.

Several EBACE panels will feature CEOs and other industry experts with perspectives on:

•  Growth projections for the sector in the coming years.

•  How AAM will reshape transportation with uses such as public transit, ride-sharing and humanitarian missions.

•              Autonomous flight and the role AI can play in aviation safety.
