With today’s launch of Rethink the Skies and announcement of a new Chairman, Hybrid Air Vehicles Limited is entering a new chapter. Hybrid Air Vehicles has long been an organisation challenging the status quo. From day one, we have pushed the boundaries of what aircraft can do. As we move forward with the production Airlander, we are now providing entirely new solutions to our customers’ needs. This year at Farnborough, we are encouraging customers to "Rethink the Skies" and make our long-time philosophy part of their operations. HAV CEO Stephen McGlennan is looking ahead towards the future that opens for both HAV and our customers when we Rethink the Skies. He comments: "Rethink the Skies is a message that is just as applicable to defence and security as it is to adventure tourism. All around us, we see new challenges to provide services into remote places, provide airborne connectivity, and reduce our industry’s environmental impact. The aerospace industry can’t solve these new challenges with variations on the same answers. With Airlander there is a way to do things differently – and better." At the same time as we drive forward towards the production Airlander and embrace Rethink the Skies, HAV is also pleased to announce the appointment of a new Chairman. Kevin Taylor has been involved in the aerospace community at executive level for more than 30 years, including as the Group Strategy Director at BAE Systems plc. "I am very excited by the opportunity Hybrid Air Vehicles has to help our customers to rethink the skies," Taylor comments, "and open a new chapter in aviation history as Airlander becomes a production aircraft in service worldwide." Note Kevin Taylor will be available at Farnborough International Airshow on the HAV stand (#1520 in Hall 1) on Wednesday 18th July from 930-1200. Direct requests for interviews to Rebecca Zeitlin, HAV Media and Communications Manager at
