After its trade fair appearances in 2012 with “Ce-Liner” and 2014 with “Propulsive Fuselage”, Bauhaus Luftfahrt again wants to attract the attention of important trade visitors and the wider public at this year’s ILA Berlin Air Show form June 1st until June 4th.

In collaboration with twelve students from Glasgow School of Art, 25 scientists from Bauhaus Luftfahrt have developed a well-matched airport and aircraft concept: “CentAirStation” and “CityBird”. Their mission statement: New inner-city airports and new aircraft operating regionally between these new inner-city airports and conventional airports will contribute greatly to solve major air transport challenges in 2040 and beyond.

Please find more details related to “CentAirStation” and “CityBird” and more background informatoin in the links:
