Here's what you missed on Opening Day at Singapore Airshow

Singapore Airshow 2018 – the headliner event for Asia’s aerospace and aviation industry and also for Thales, kicked off today with countless delegates, visitors and new, significant deals.

This year, we showcased solutions aimed at equipping forward-looking industry leaders with the capability to address future challenges. Visitors were in for a treat when they entered a fuselage right at our booth to experience the Inflyt 360; got a taste of becoming future pilots with the electronic flight bag Aviobook; went on a VR-based flight and mission training on our simulator HeliMission, and more! If you haven’t had the chance to visit us at our stand, do come by when you get one.
