Abstract : For a long time the A400 was considered a problem at Airbus. Deadlines could not be met due to technical hurdles and the rising cost of the project kept the A400M in the headlines for a long time. Originally planned as a traditional military transport aircraft, requirements increased over the years. With regard to comparable aircraft types, payload and range had to double. Today, the complex project includes parachute and load capabilities, air refuelling and unpaved runway operations. The A400M thus became a mammoth project, requiring cutting edge technology. In the meantime, it proved itself in military and humanitarian operations following natural disasters.

At this round table, four presentations and a panel discussion will show what the A400M can do, what challenges the development teams had to master, what was really behind the headlines in the media, and what services the A400M can provide now and in the future. Representatives from the A400M Chief Engineering and Flight Testing departments at Airbus will provide insights into the design, development and testing, and the German Air Force will report on its introduction into the air force and operational experience. Come and meet us in Bremen, discover the flight test phase and technical developments and find out what is really behind the A400M.
