Airbus 350 – Design & Development

13 November 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Speaker: Gordon McConnell 

Gordon McConnell was the Chief Engineer for the Airbus 350 – a long range wide-body jet airliner that entered service in 2015. An important feature is the aircraft’s all-new carbon fibre reinforced plastic wing and fuselage that results in lower fuel consumption, as well as easier maintenance.
In 2014 he was awarded the Royal Aeronautical Societies Gold Medal for work of an outstanding nature in Aerospace. The Council of European Aerospace Societies made their 2016 award to Gordon, stating that ‘Through his exceptional leadership in technical and engineering development and personal contribution to the success of Airbus, has made an outstanding contribution to European aerospace.’
