Fly Your Ideas is all about harnessing the power of innovation and inspiring students around the world to engage with the work we do constantly at Airbus – looking for better ways to fly.
Here, we speak to people at the heart of innovation at Airbus, to give you some insight into life at Airbus and what innovation really means in the world of work. Head of Passenger Comfort Kevin Keniston tells us why innovation for him is “the right idea at the right time”.
Throughout Round 1, we will be sharing the experiences of Airbus Fly Your Ideas veterans - don’t miss the chance to learn from their involvement. Here’s what Javier Puig had to say about participating in the challenge, and how to maximise your chances of success…“I took part in the 2013 edition of Airbus Fly Your Ideas as part of 5-strong ‘TeamDisaero’ from the Polytechnic of Valencia in Spain.
Airbus Fly Your Ideas 2015 touched down in St. Petersburg, Russia on 16 September 2014, at a special event as part of the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences (ICAS) 2014 congress.More than 100 people attended, including students and faculty from 6 Russian universities. The international audience responded enthusiastically to the delegation from Airbus, who presented a short history of Airbus in Russia, as well as news from the A320neo production line at the Engineering Centre of Airbus in Russia (ECAR).
You wanted it, so we built it!
Introducing Let’s Connect. This is a new platform for the Airbus Fly Your Ideas community to network, connect and share their interest in innovation, as well as the future of aviation.

With Round 1 of Fly Your Ideas 2015 now
open for submissions, we have compiled the ultimate list of Dos and
Don’ts for teams completing their Round 1 questionnaire. Keep this
advice in mind, and make your entry stand out!
When it comes to unlocking some of the greatest challenges facing the aviation industry, innovation that goes beyond the aircraft can often hold the key.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to innovation for the aviation industry. In the latest instalment of Airbus’ future-gazing programme, The Future by Airbus, the SmarterSkies project provides innovation inspiration from across the industry…
Are you interested in
innovating with Airbus for the future of aviation? Would you like the

want to keep up-to-date with Fly Your Ideas?
We already know that lots of you
are – and it’s great to see the various informal Fly Your Ideas groups where
individuals are discussing this great global student challenge.
Improved teamwork skills, insight into the aviation
industry and a ‘great help’ with academic studies – just some of the benefits
from taking part in the Airbus Fly Your Ideas challenge, according to a recent
survey of previous Fly Your Ideas participants.
If you’re a PhD student, you’ve probably already identified Fly Your Ideas 2015 as a great opportunity to apply your academic knowledge to the real-world challenges of the sustainable aviation industry of the future. You may have already registered, and be brainstorming ideas with fellow students.
an inspiring day in London mapping out future plans for collaboration, the
