Paris, 20 June 2019 – In only 45 days, AKKA Technologies has put all its expertise and capability into helping AURA AERO create a first prototype of the cockpit of their aerobatic, training and tourism aircraft in record time.

At the 2019 Paris Air Show, AURA AERO unveils its new family of aircraft named “INTEGRAL”. Its first prototype demonstrates the Toulouse-based company’s ambition to deliver a new generation of 100% French and eco-responsible two-seater aircraft by 2021.

The AKKA Technologies teams were able to build the model of the INTEGRAL Cockpit in just 45 days thanks to the efforts of the Group’s team of experts. The model offers future pilots and buyers of this aircraft a taste of a level of comfort and design which has yet to be achieved in this sector.

INTEGRAL is a family of two-seater aircraft designed for aerobatics, civil and military pilot training and also for leisure travel.

The family consists of two aircraft, INTEGRAL R & INTEGRAL S, to offer high-performance capabilities according to operators’ needs. They combine a forward-thinking design made in France with the integration of an intelligent wood and carbon alloy to develop a fully connected, eco-responsible and intelligent aircraft, for unrivaled operational efficiency.

AKKA Technologies, as a key player in the aeronautics sector valued for its expertise throughout the value chain and the entire product life cycle, has established itself as a strategic partner alongside AURA AERO in the production of this modern cockpit model that meets the needs of its key customers, namely the aerobatic community, instructors, military trainers, airline pilots and passengers.
