Group Research Paper - Airbus 2A description of the company (aeronautical, aircraft production, etc.) the environment where it operates in:The foundation of the aviation industry can be seen through the increasing supply and demand which has allowed companies to continue to keep creating new and more advanced aircraft. With the continuous rise in the aviation industry, it is imperative for the current aircraft manufacturers to work towards maintaining their current position.
