Dassault Aviation formalizes its agreement with Airbus on the future European combat aircraft

The horizon is finally clearing for the Scaf, the future European combat aircraft financed by Germany, France and Spain. After more than a year of tough negotiations, Dassault Aviation claims to have finally reached an agreement with its main partner on this program, the Airbus group. “So, yes, today it is done. We have an agreement with Airbus. All blockages have been lifted. We will be able to begin the execution of the new phase of studies, called 1B, which must prepare the development of a demonstrator, which should fly around 2029”revealed on December 1 Eric Trappier, CEO of Dassault Aviation, in a interview given to Figaro – the Dassault group being the owner of the daily.

All the indicators therefore seem to be green for the continuation of the program. On November 18, the French and German states had already welcomed their cooperation in this armament program. Berlin emphasized that it was part of “an approach of cooperation between equals”, while Paris estimated that “the political agreement on Scaf was a big step forward”.
