Was suddenly getting a lot of comments on a post I wrote 2 years ago. All very complimentary – then I realised this must -sigh- be spamming. It has nudged me into a quick update today. Sooo busy finishing a book on private jets, writing a couple articles prior to heading to Hamburg next week for the Aircraft Interiors Show (http://www.aircraftinteriorsexpo.com) for Inflight magazine (www.hmgaerospace.com) , which I edit , then to China for the Asian Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition.
Hamburg’s going to be very buzzy. Thales, Panasonic and Lufthansa Systems have kindly invited me to go visit them for an update on their latest cabin innovations, while our technical editor Steve Nichols will be chewing the fat with the likes of Inmarsat and Cobham to find out what’s new in the world of connectivity. With Ka coming online later this year, there’s going to be a LOT of new info on satcomms.
Apart from that of course, there’s the joy of good convivial company and the general ambience of Hamburg. itself. Home to the early days of the Beatles, worldwide shipping and a men only road in the red light district, it’s an eclectic mix of sophisticated international culture and well…trashy tourism. I’ve always had a fun time there though, and this April promises more of the same.
Note to self – update this blog when u get to Hamburg…:)
