Military Airlift Renaissance:
New Players in the Arena

Thursday 25 January – 15:00 (UK) / 10:00 (ET)

The Military Airlift market is undergoing a huge renaissance. New players, often with airliner manufacturing experience in the civil market, are entering the sector with support from their respective governments.

The market for fixed wing airlift of all classes has ‘exploded’ as nations improve or expand both tactical and strategic capabilities, and leverage decades of commercial aircraft product development and learning. Companies like Embraer from Brazil, Airbus from Europe and Xi’an from China are disrupting the historic norms, using their civil design and manufacturing experience to build highly competitive lifters. This is coupled to indigenous demand from nations guaranteeing a launch market, while countries such as New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa show interest in replacement programmes.

The briefing will examine the transport market and global trends for fixed wing aircraft and it will cover:

  • Commercial cross-over programmes as a boost to military airlift.
  • Overview of airlifter types, both well established and lesser known, like the Pilatus PC-12, Airbus C295 and Alenia C-27J, Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules, Airbus 400M, and newcomers like Embraer KC-390 and Kawasaki C-2.
  • Forecast and trend analysis of tactical and strategic airlift capability, including future technological developments.
Speakers include:
  • Beatrice Bernardi – Senior Analyst, Jane’s Air Platforms
  • John Sneller – Manager, Aviation Desk
  • Charles Hollosi – Senior Analyst, Jane’s Military Platforms
  • Mark Bobbi – Principal Analyst, Aviation
