OCCAR-EA Director, Matteo BISCEGLIA, accompanied by the A400M PM, Gary Palmer, visited the Seville staff in charge of A400M Aircraft Acceptance and Deliveries.
This visit was an opportunity to meet with Airbus Executive Managers. The day started with a meeting where Airbus explained its sustainability objectives for its Commercial business and detailed how the military business was shared in Spain, with MMF and Eurofighter (Getafe), Tiger and NH90 (Albacete), CASA 295 and A400M (Seville).
This was followed by a visit of the Final Assembly Line (FAL) in Seville where the A400M Aircraft is assembled and a detailed presentation of all its capabilities was provided by Airbus. The OCCAR delegation was then given the opportunity to go on-board and see the cockpit and the impressive Cargo hold first hand.
