Christina Balis, Doug Berenson and Alek Jovovic comment on future aircraft production trends, demand for unmanned airborne systems, emerging countries’ military aviation programs, fueling efficiency upgrades, and MRO requirements—in an article for the European Security and Defence Union Magazine.
“Budgets in the US and Europe will remain constrained for years to come, accelerating a number of paradigm shifts in military aviation. Sophisticated aircraft may be increasingly designed and produced by emerging powers, and the number and nature of both manned and unmanned platforms will change in the coming decade. At the same time, greater efficacies and savings will be sought at both ends of the aircraft lifecycle, resulting in more fuel-efficient engine design and greater competition for the increasingly important maintenance, repair, and overhaul market.”
