AERALIS, the transformational British military jet developer, will be supporting the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2022. RIAT takes place at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire, from 15th – 17th July, and AERALIS will be exhibiting on the chalet line.

Inside the company’s chalet AERALIS will be demonstrating the model-based systems engineering approach which is enabling the effective assessment of aircraft performance in a digital test and evaluation environment. Members of the AERALIS team will also be available to explain the concept in further detail, supported by videos, graphics and a sub-scale model of the aircraft, allowing visitors to fully visualise the modularity of the jet and its applications.

RIAT marks an important step in the company’s growth, following a successful year for the British jet developer. The last year has seen AERALIS partner with several companies for the ultimate delivery of the aircraft, including Thales UK, Atkins, Siemens, Martin-Baker and Hamble Aerostructures. AERALIS also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Rolls-Royce to explore initial and future options to meet the company’s propulsion requirements. AERALIS is also in phase two of a three-year contract with the Royal Air Force’s Rapid Capabilities Office.

Most recently, AERALIS further developed its partnering arrangement with Hamble Aerostructures by hosting Paul Holmes, MP for Eastleigh, for a tour of Hamble’s facility and a briefing on the collaborative partnership between the two companies. 

“We are greatly looking forward to exhibiting at RIAT this year. The event presents a wonderful opportunity to engage further with industry and government, and we are looking forward to briefing visitors on the possibilities offered by the cutting-edge modularity of our jet.”
