The world‘s leading trade show for general aviation would have celebrated its 28th anniversary in year 2020. Due to the requirements and impacts of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic AERO Friedrichshafen was forced to postpone the trade show to year 2021. In year 2021 the 29th edition of AERO Friedrichshafen will take place.
AERO Friedrichshafen first began with some exhibitors from the aviation sector who presented gliders and motor gliders as part of the motorsports exhibition. Numerous exhibitors kept faith to AERO right from the start, many joined the venue in the course of time and all of them contributed significantly to the AERO Friedrichshafen success.
The success of AERO has depended not only on Friedrichshafen's reputation as a cradle of aviation, which was initiated by Ferdinand Count Zeppelin in the year 1900, but also on a fast-growing ultralight aircraft sector. The Business Aviation segment was launched at AERO 1995 and strong expansion especially in the fields of avionics, aircraft maintenance and services was implemented in recent years.
In 2002, Messe Friedrichshafen moved to its new facilities, right next to the airport, giving a strong boost to AERO's continued growth and development into the world's leading trade show regarding innovations for general aviation.
International – Informative – Innovative
In the frame of AERO CONFERENCES aviation specialists and connoisseurs of the industry will present and discuss current topics and latest developments available for everyone at AERO Friedrichshafen.
The Avionics Avenue informs about flight control and management systems, communications systems, navigation devices, displays, weather radar, and air and ground radar systems of different manufacturers at first glance.
Possibilities to experience the avionic equipment by yourself will be given in the Headset Test Area or learn about new developments in product presentations and workshops.
Engines and propulsion systems are in the focus of the Engine Area again at the AERO Friedrichshafen 2021. Whether it be radial engines, hybrid propulsion systems or electric motors, this special exhibition gave its visitors a comprehensive overview of the products available on the market.
Moreover, additional topics such as maintenance and engine management are part of the Engine Area 2021.
The e-flight expo organised in co-operation with Flying Pages GmbH will be, once again, a major section at AERO Friedrichshafen 2021.
In addition to the e-flight expo special exhibition, there are dedicated e-flight lectures at AERO. As part of the AERO Conferences, high-calibre speakers talked about the history and development of electric flight.

A diverse range of artwork including photography, painting, furniture, graphic painting and sculpture will be on display. Of course, all of the displayed artwork was also available for sale.
