    Gonna throw French into the picture, purely based on Airbus.

    Either German or french if you're in Europe(i'm assuming you are since you're asking). If you speak one of those two, you're probably in good shape, at least thats the impression i get from a few aerospace engineering majors I know that have been looking at jobs with airbus potentially.

    :rofl: :rofl:
    Spanish? Ok, we are partners (up to 10%) of EADS, but it does not imply spanish is spoken in aerospace industry. We are also partners of ESA (5%), but it's negligible compared with the cake piece of Germany, France and GB in european aerospace industry. For instance, the two official languages of ESA are english and french.
