2012 is the 20th anniversary of the creation of Eurocopter, formed in 1992 by a merger of Franceâ€™s Aerospatiale Helicopters and Germanyâ€™s Messerschmitt-BÃ¶lkow-Blohm. It was the first major cross-border rationalisation of the European helicopter industry and was in some ways a fore-runner of the later creation of the European Aerospace Defence and Space Company EADS, in which Eurocopter, along with Airbus, Astrium and Cassidian, is one of the four operating divisions.
Mr Dominque Maudet, Executive Vice President Global Business and Services, Eurocopter Group, and Executive Officer for France, will describe the story of the Groupâ€™s formation, integration and progress up to today, with an insight into the future. His historical narrative will be complemented by an account of some of the technical, commercial and political challenges faced, and lessons learned.
This lecture is free to attend and open to both RAeS members and non-members. Refreshments will be served from 17.30 and the lecture will commence at 18.00. Following the lecture, there will be a networking drinks reception, hosted by Eurocopter.
