At the forefront of pursuing more sustainable, connected flight, RTX will display its electric and hybrid-electric propulsion capabilities, as well as its end-to-end Connected Aviation Ecosystem solutions that help streamline operations, improve sustainability and enhance the passenger experience. Demos will also be available on the Next-Gen Commercial Cockpit Demonstrator.

Highlighting defence solutions, the company will display an array of capabilities that support air warfare needs and a more connected battlespace. Models of both the F100 and F135 engines that power F-15s, F-16s and F-35s in the Asia Pacific region will also be on display. RTX recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the F-16's first flight - powered by the Pratt & Whitney F100 engine – and is looking to the future with the F135 Engine Core Upgrade, which will deliver the performance needed to fully-enable Block 4 capabilities for all F-35 operators starting in 2029.

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in the aviation industry with a forecasted demand of almost 9,000 new aircraft required over the next decade – with about 3,800 of those required within the next five years.
