Historically, the biennial Paris Air Show has provided a snapshot of the state of aerospace industries around the world. The 2017 event at Le Bourget near Paris is likely to be no different. Two F-35A Joint Strike Fighters will conduct a flight demonstration at the Air Show. In addition, U.S. defense companies will send many top-of-the-line aircraft and helicopters to the show. On the commercial side, Boeing is sending its 737 MAX 9 and 787-10 Dreamliner flight test airplanes and Airbus will fly for the first time its new A321neo, powered by the Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan Engine. I have written more on the Paris Air Show for The National Interest here.
