Two PH teams compete at Airbus tilt

MANILA, Philippines — Two teams from the Philippines are among the 84 teams from various universities worldwide that were selected to advance to round 2 of the Airbus Fly Your Ideas (FYI) contest. They will also have a chance to participate in the finals at the International Paris Airshow-Le Bourget in France.

Over 2,600 participants have earlier registered for Airbus’ second university contest which challenges students from all around the world to develop new ideas for a greener aviation industry.

Philippine participants Green Bang and Team Strategos both from the Asian Institute of Management are among the strongest contenders. Team Strategos entered in the Designing of Cabin Solution category while Green Bang competed in the Supply Chain Green Purchase category.

Airbus invited students to make proposals on any or all stages of the aviation ‘Environmental Life Cycle’, an approach Airbus uses to improve the environmental performance of an aircraft and its production process in five areas: design; supply chain; manufacturing; aircraft operations and aircraft end-of-life.

The FYI contest, like Airbus, brings people of different cultures and horizons together. The tilt involves three challenging rounds. Five teams with the most exciting projects will be chosen in May and advance to the FYI final. The winning team will be picked by a high-profile panel of judges and take home the €30,000 first prize. The runner-up will receive €15,000.
