EADS is to ditch the Eurocopter, Cassidian (if you ever heard of it) and EADS brand names and trade under the names Airbus, Airbus Defence & Space and
Airbus Helicopters in future.
While this does give a unified brand name to the companies, it seems odd that the name Airbus should apply to helos and stealth drones too!
Maybe its just me and the fact the the very name Airbus was originally a BEA airliner requirement to which Hawker Siddeley designed what was to become
the A300 all those years ago, but my how its all changed now.
