Press Conference Christian Ehler MEP

The European Aeronautics Research Programme Clean Sky has a longstanding and successful partnership with Germany and its aerospace stakeholders. The Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking is organizing a conference at ILA Berlin Air Show to emphasise the importance of this partnership. On the occasion of the CleanSky Conference “Boosting European Aviation Research & Innovation: Clean Sky building synergies with Member States and Regions” Mr Christian Ehler, Member of the European Parliament, would like to invite you to a press conference in order to focus on the importance of aeronautics as a key contributor to the European economy and competitiveness. This conference is crucial with regard to both the preparation of the European Multiannual Financial Framework post-2020 after Brexit and the planning of the future Ninth Framework Programme for Research and Innovation with a potential Clean Sky 3. Thus the ILA and the conference will offer a key opportunity to express political support for the Aviation R&I sector in Germany and for an even more ambitious Clean Sky 3 programme in the future.

Press meeting The Return of the Candy Bombers - Celebrating 70 years of the “Berlin Airlift”

It was the most spectacular and largest relief operation in history; an organizational masterpiece and an impressive demonstration of humanitarian support and adherence: the Allied airlift to West Berlin. From 1948 to 1949 it kept more than two million people alive by transporting food and other crucial goods. In summer 2019 about 40 original machines from four continents will once again fly along the former routes all the way to Berlin repeating the Candy Drop.
