Digital Cabin by ADS heads to AIX 2022

The UK has delivered ground-breaking and influential aircraft interiors designs over the years. It’s this innovative spirit and capability that motivated UK aerospace trade association, ADS, to create its Digital Cabin: a virtual interiors capability showcase. Reuben Gomez, from ADS will be at AIX 2022 this year.

“We are thrilled to be meeting face to face at AIX Hamburg this June”, says Reuben Gomez, ADS aerospace business development lead. We welcome the opportunity to showcase UK innovation at its best from our cabin exhibitors, including some sustainable new technology. The 3D visualisations are incredibly realistic and I can quickly show a number of products from the single cabin geometry, which can be tricky at a physical trade show”.

Digital Cabin – a one-stop global shop

From pioneering seat concepts to advanced electronics, lighting, and expert contract manufacturers, view UK interior excellence in our digital cabin.

Exhibitors include Cecence, an award-winning composite solutions development and manufacturing company, developing lightweight aero interiors using recycled carbon, natural fibres and bio-based resin systems and Airtek, a government-funded consortium between Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), JPA and SWS Aircraft Certification and was the first entity to sign up.


“When ADS told me about the Digital Cabin concept I thought it was a great idea”, notes WAE’s senior commercial manager, Stuart Olden. “The Airtek seat is a pioneering, premium-class, totally lie-flat configuration and in the virtual cabin environment, people can interact with the seat and its functionality. Airtek’s all-composite construction reduces weight dramatically and so cuts all-important fuel burn and CO2 production. Our individual web page incorporates 3D renders, fact sheets and video enabling us to get this message across in a number of different ways.”

Other exhibitors include TT Electronics, STG Aerospace, IPC Mouldings, Flitetec, Future Plastics, Cecence and Bradfor with a new exhibitor due to be unveiled at AIX 2022.

“3D visualisation helps build customer confidence and is playing an increasingly important role in the B2B sales process. Buyers can see the products in situ, at scale and from all angles, something that helps for more complex products”, comments ADS Marketing & Engagement Manager Nicola Green. “The UK is world-leading in its innovative aerospace products and I’m delighted that we are able to leverage 3D technology to help UK SMEs reach a global marketplace.”
