In keeping with the new slogan ‘If you are rotors – we got it!’, the new show will create a global networking platform for the helicopter industry from 10-12 November 2020 at Koelnmesse, Germany. It will also integrate the renowned EASA Rotorcraft and VTOL Symposium.
Airbus, Bell, Leonardo and Safran are supporting the new format both through their presence as exhibitors and with an advisory function. “I am proud to announce the launch of EUROPEAN ROTORS in cooperation with EASA and with the great support of all our members,” declared Peter Möller, Chairman of the organizers, European Helicopter Association, at the opening press conference. “The new gathering for the industry marks an important milestone in our endeavours to promote the social and economic value of rotorcraft operations for European society. We will offer operators, manufacturers, aviation authorities, the supporting industry, mechanics, pilots, customers and suppliers the opportunity to network and also to be informed on state-of-the-art equipment and services. Visitors will additionally have the chance to discuss present and future regulations as well as to participate in dedicated training.”
Another fundamental component of the three-day event will be the integration of the renowned EASA Rotorcraft and VTOL Symposium. David Solar, Head of VTOL Department at EASA explained: “Through our participation in EUROPEAN ROTORS, in collaboration with EHA, we are integrating our very successful and established Rotorcraft and VTOL Symposium to reach out to the broader industry, enabling better collaboration and mutual understanding to enhance global aviation safety. Direct exchange with manufacturers, operators, Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) and maintenance organisations will provide us with valuable 360° feedback for our work.”
