Civil Aviation Day 2021
Today is the 28th International Civil Aviation Day. The purpose of this day is to remind the world how important civil aviation is in regards to global development and our everyday lives. Check out these statistics from the United Nations:
- The global Air Transport sector supports 65.5 million jobs and $2.7 trillion in global economic activity.
- Over 10 million women and men work within the industry to ensure 120,000 flights carry 12 million passengers a day safely to their destinations.
- At least 3.6% of global economic activity is supported by the aviation industry, according to research by the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG).
As you can see, civil aviation impacts millions of people around the world, including you. Whether you are an individual working in the industry or traveling by plane, civil aviation should matter to you.
Through 2023, the theme of Civil Aviation Day is Advancing Innovation for Global Aviation Development. Innovation is what we do at Radiall, and we are excited to be part of a global industry that is advancing every day. Radiall entered the aerospace market in 1995 when we acquired Jerrik Connecting Devices. Since then, we have become a leading supplier in the industry, with a reputation for high quality interconnect products and innovative solutions for harsh conditions and environments. In 2004, Radiall’s range of fiber optic termini, LuxCis®, was selected as the ARINC 801 industry standard.
We have a team of expert engineers located around the globe that enables us to locally support all major aerospace manufacturers. Our comprehensive range of interconnect components support many aviation applications, including in-flight entertainment, connectivity (IFEC), sensors, EWIS and power distribution.
On Civil Aviation Day, we’d like to give a shoutout to our amazing employees who design and manufacture components for this industry, as well as the manufacturers that we work with to make air travel possible.
