Airbus Fly Your Ideas, in partnership with UNESCO, challenges student teams worldwide to develop new ideas for the future of aviation. The ideas should address one of the six themes identified by Airbus as key challenges for aviation in the 21st Century: Energy, Efficiency, Affordable Growth, Traffic Growth, Passenger Experience, and Community Friendliness. While the jury is still deliberating to select the five teams that will make it to the final of this fourth edition of the Fly Your Ideas global challenge, online voting has started for the eight teams that submitted the best videos to present their innovative ideas.
The video competition is part of the 2nd round of the global challenge. One hundred teams made it to this round, comprising 413 students from 48 countries. Eighty five teams submitted a video to present themselves and their Fly Your Ideas journey. The 8 best videos were selected by a jury of 50 Airbus experts and innovators. The eight shortlisted teams for the Video Competition are from Poland, the United States, Canada, France, Brazil, Italy, Jordan, and India.
Now it’s up to the public to select the best video, as these eight teams compete for online votes. The team that has received the most votes on Sunday 17 May 11:59 GMT will be crowned winner of the Fly Your Ideas “Best Video Team”. We encourage you to take a look at the creative and innovative work of these teams, and to vote on your favourite.
