Dear member,

This year the Foreign excursion will take you to two very exciting destinations; Lucerne and Milan. From the 28th of April until the 4th of May we will travel to Switzerland and Italy where we will visit multiple aeronautical related companies.

Our first destination, Lucerne, is one of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland. It lies in the center of Switzerland sited on Lake Lucerne, surrounded by 3 mountains. While being here we will visit two of the most interesting aerospace companies in the country; Pilatus and RUAG Aviation. Pilatus is the only Swiss company to develop, produce and sell aircraft, the company is famous for its private jets. RUAG Aviation is part of the bigger RUAG group, this company is a supplier, service provider and integrator of systems and components for civil and military aviation. They make fuselage sections, wings and many other structures and systems for companies like Airbus and Bombardier.

The second city that we are visiting is Milan. A popular tourist destination for very good reason. It is the fashion and football city of Italy and has an amazing selection of food. More importantly, the capital of Lombardy houses some exciting companies. While not confirmed, we are in contact with Leonardo and Thales. Leonardo is one of the key players in the aerospace, defense and security industries. They develop for example the NH90 and the Super Lynx 300. Thales is a company with 64,000 employees and operates in 56 countries, it is focused on keeping the public safe and secure, guarding vital infrastructure and protecting the national security interests of countries around the globe. These two companies also have a shared venture; the Thales Alenia Space, which is focused on innovation in spaceflight.

Our goal is to visit as many interesting companies as possible and to explore these beautiful cities. Of course, you will also receive the 2018-2019 Foreign Excursion sweater!

We cherish the positive expectation that you will join us on this unforgettable journey!
