Bell shows FCX-001


The concept aircraft was built to address the evolving demands of our customers and demonstrate key technologies that revolutionize the pilot and passenger experience, including:

A new anti-torque system in the tail boom designed to change the safety, noise and performance parameters of vertical lift aircraft forever.

Hybridised propulsion combines advanced thermal engine cores for the main propulsion with, for example, electric distribution and motors to drive the anti-torque system for more control and simpler vehicle operations and maintenance.

An airframe that is made from advanced sustainable materials to provide structural performance and offer configurations that our customers desire. In order to provide enhanced situational awareness, visibility and room, we are exploring the right combination of material and geometry. The airframe is also our front line for energy management where we harvest, store, attenuate and distribute external energy or system energy not already employed for useful work on the air vehicle.

A landing gear with non-traditional geometries that facilitate function when combined with advanced materials and actuation.

Morphing rotor blades that allow aircraft to optimise performance in different flight regimes.

A single pilot seat and an entirely new flight deck experience with the pilot controlling the aircraft through augmented reality and an artificial intelligence computer assistance system.

A highly modular passenger cabin enhanced with the same augmented reality technology for individualized infotainment to catch up on world news, hold a video conference call, share documents with other passengers or simply watch a movie or play music to relax.


“For the past 80 years, Bell Helicopter has imagined the art of the possible and brought those dreams to life,” said Bell Helicopter’s President and CEO Mitch Snyder during the opening ceremony at the HAI Heli-Expo.

“Being a pioneer in the aircraft industry is in our DNA and we want to share this renewed passion with the world. The FCX-001 points the way for our future – a renewed focus on innovative solutions and technologies. When the time is right we look forward to sharing more of what we’re doing behind closed doors,” added Snyder.

Company records 40% of new business from former aircraft owners as customers shift toward sharing economy models.

  • Company took on 15 new business jets in 2016, equaling 26% fleet growth
  • Has now connected 250,000 passengers to over 1,600 airports in 187 countries
  • New customers included principals as young as 25, and major technology companies purchasing 400+ flight hours
  • 40% of its new business in 2016 came from customers moving away from fractional or full aircraft ownership

VistaJet, the first and only global aviation company, today announced that it has safely performed over 100,000 flights in its history, recording significant growth as corporations and UHNWIs continue using business jets to travel the world.

In the first nine months of 2016, 7.7% fewer new aircraft were delivered year-on-year, and the total number of deliveries remained at the same level as it was in 20121 . At the same time, VistaJet took on 15 brand new business jets in 2016 to meet increasing demand, equaling 26% fleet growth. The company has now connected 250,000 passengers to over 1,600 airports in 187 countries.

The company forecasts this growth to continue as a rising number of millennials enter the business aviation market and look to participate in the shared economy trend rather than own a depreciating asset. Among its new customers were principals as young as 25, and major technology companies purchasing 400+ flight hours for their executives to fly worldwide. The firm reports that 40% of its new business in 2016 came from customers moving away from fractional or full aircraft ownership in favour of anytime access to its global fleet.

VistaJet Program customers accounted for the majority of the company’s business in 2016. The VistaJet Program is a bespoke solution aimed at individuals and corporations flying between 50 and 1,000+ hours per year, offering guaranteed access anytime and anywhere to a global fleet of silver and red branded aircraft.
As part of its 71 business jets, VistaJet now also counts the largest privately owned Global 6000 and Challenger 350 fleet in the industry. In 2016 the company moved its global headquarters to growing European business hub, Malta, whilst expanding its offices in key cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, Hong Kong, Seoul and Lisbon.

ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet gives a guided tour of the International Space Station’s exercise machines. Staying fit is important on Earth but even more so in space as bones and muscle are used less in microgravity and tend to waste away. Astronauts spend around two hours every day doing fitness routines.

The Space Station has three types of exercise machines: a treadmill (T2), an exercise bicycle (CEVIS) and a weight-lifting machine (ARED).

Thomas is spending six months on the International Space Station as part of his Proxima mission. During Proxima, Thomas will perform around 50 scientific experiments for ESA and France’s space agency CNES as well as take part in many research activities for the other Station partners.

The mission is part of ESA’s vision to use Earth-orbiting spacecraft as a place to live and work for the benefit of European society while using the experience to prepare for future voyages of exploration further into the Solar System.
