    U.S., European allies map out larger role for F-35 fighter

    Lockheed Martin (Swiss: LMT.SW - news) 's F-35 fighter jet is arriving in growing numbers in Europe, and is poised to play a much broader role in missile defence and other warfare plans than conventional fighters, according to U.S. and European officials. After years of technical challenges and programme delays, the F-35, the world's most expensive arms programme, is rapidly gaining a foothold in the United States and Europe. The new warplane's high-end sensors will give it a bigger role across all domains of war than previous fighter planes, including in missile defence, said General Tod Wolters, the top commander of U.S. and NATO air forces in Europe.

    Saab CEO Says Warplane Maker Could Join U.K.-Led Fighter Program

    Saab AB, maker of the Gripen warplane, said it’s interested in joining a U.K.-led project to develop a cutting-edge combat aircraft that would be a mainstay of defense programs in two decades time. While Saab is also evaluating a rival Franco-German fighter plan, the Tempest program funded by Britain’s Ministry of Defence and including BAE Systems Plc and Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc has more appeal for the Swedish company, Chief Executive Officer Hakan Buskhe said Friday.

    Aviation industry urged to hire more women as staff shortages loom

    Executives from top aerospace and aviation companies called on Thursday for stepped-up efforts to attract more women, saying this could help solve looming shortages of pilots, mechanics and top managers in the traditionally male-dominated sector. The industries are coming under scrutiny because of the low numbers of women employed as senior executives or airline pilots. The head of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker, caused a storm last month when he said that a woman could not do his job, although he later apologised, saying his comments had been intended as a joke and were taken out of context.

    Tempest jet takes UK engineering by storm

    It is to be the UK's sixth generation fighter jet - and I was one of the first people in Britain to climb into its cockpit. The first thing that strikes you about the full scale model of the proposed Tempest, which is due to take to the skies by 2035 and which will eventually replace the Eurofighter Typhoon, is what a sleek, aerodynamic beast it is. The futuristic twin-engined aircraft is at the heart of the Future Combat Air Strategy unveiled by Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson at the Farnborough International Airshow this week and, while some comparisons have been made with Lockheed Martin (Swiss: LMT.SW - news) 's F-22 'Raptor', it looks like nothing else on earth.

    Brexit cloud hanging over Farnborough Airshow

    Political concerns overshadowed the second day of the Farnborough International Airshow as business leaders and politicians alike expressed concerns about the government's ability to get its Brexit proposals through the House of Commons. Following a successful first day at the event, during which a record $46.2bn (£35bn) worth of deals were announced, there was anxiety that a deal on frictionless goods trade between Britain and the EU post-Brexit - the key element in the Chequers Agreement that forms the basis of the government's Brexit white paper - may be in jeopardy. Carolyn Fairbairn, director-general of the CBI, said MPs (BSE: MPSLTD.BO - news) needed to "calm down" so that clear heads would prevail.
