    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. This study examines the creation, development and significance of the Airbus Industrie (AI) consortium. Now the world's second largest manufacturer of commercial airliners, A1 brings together the design and construction skills of Europe's premier aerospace firms. Formed under French law in 1970 as a Groupement d'Interet Economique (GIE), A1 is jointly owned by Aerospatiale of France (37.9%), Deutsche Aerospace of Germany (37.9%), British Aerospace of the United Kingdom (20%) and CASA of Spain (4.2%). Having developed a family of seven technically sophisticated designs, A1 has delivered aircraft to 109 customers world-wide and now claims approximately 30% of new orders in a highly competitive global market.
