    The availability of frequencies - Revised edition (june 2017)

    Many basic aircraft, satellite and radar functions are provided by data transmission over the air waves. The frequency spectrum is divided up by usage to avoid interferences with the other airwave users (telecommunications, etc.).

    The frequency spectrum is a limited natural resource which is being depleted because of the sharp increase in demand as new applications come on stream. The electronic communications industry in particular is pushing for allocation for its high-speed mobile telecommunications networks.

    GIFAS represents the industry’s interests in its dealings with the stakeholders.

    The availability of frequency bands and the control of the regulatory framework are key issues that will shape GIFAS member company product and equipment launches.

    Frequency Commission publishes four documents to describe the sector (stakes, social weight and specifities of the sector) and explains sector evolution as per industry view and spectrum needs: frequencies for commercial and business aircraft; frequencies for radars; frequencies for satellite communication systems.

    "The aerospace industry and the challenge of climate change" (June 2017)

    brochure_2015_anglais.jpgThe climate system is warming. Around 2,000 billion tonnes of CO2 have already been emitted since the begining of the industrial age.

    In order to limit global warning to a 2°C increase between pre-industrial levels and 2100, we will need to lower current rate of emissions increase by 2020, cut them threefold between 2020 and 2050, and then continue to bring them down thereafter.

    In air transport, the entire industry (aircraft manufacturers, airlines, airports, etc.) has made continued efforts to reduce its environmental footprint. Despite increased air traffic, the air transport industry have been working to reduce its CO2 emissions for the past several decades.
    Major innovations in the last few decades have brought about a fivefold reduction in kerosene consumption (and thus CO2 emissions) by planes produced between 1960 and 2010.

    The air transport sector was the first to make a collective commitment to achieving specific environmental objectives at an international level.

    1909 - 2009 Aeronautics & Space: from Paris to Le Bourget, a century of Air Shows

    1_copy2.jpgThe Paris Air Show is 100 years old - that is, a century of promotion for the breathtaking technical progress that aeronautics and aerospace manufacturers have achieved.

    How far they have come, and especially what vision our predecessors must have had to regularly organize an exhibition of such magnitude.

    For years, the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget airfield has been the world's largest exhibition of its kind, a fantastic dispaly of the most advanced technologiers, and a not-to-be-missed rendezvous for business and the general public alike.

    This air fair first opened its doors at the start of the twentieth century, in step with the  emergence of the French aeronautics industry.
