Sharing in Growth beneficiaries have been offered the opportunity to attend an event hosted by the ATI and Airbus for suppliers to learn more about collaborating on E-Fan X. Attendees will be able to meet Airbus representatives to discuss generic requirements for components and identify opportunities for capability and technology development for future hybrid-electric vehicles.
