What was launched over 40 years ago with a handful of gliders and motor gliders as a small aviation exhibition in the context of a regional automobile exhibition has developed into one of the world's most important industry meetings with a impressive line-up of all kind of aircraft types.
Numerous exhibitors have remained loyal to AERO from the very beginning, while many new ones have joined over the years and have contributed significantly to the successful development of AERO Friedrichshafen.
AERO has also benefited from Friedrichshafen as an aviation location, which was established in 1900 by Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin, as well as from the booming UL industry. In 1995, the Business Aviation section was introduced at AERO for the first time. In addition, the trade show significantly expanded its offerings in the areas of avionics, maintenance and aviation services in the following years.
The move to the new exhibition halls at the airport followed in 2002. AERO is one of the few trade fairs to have its own taxiway to the exhibition center. The focus of the trade show on active people in aviation and future topics has always driven the growth of AERO and made it the world's leading trade show for innovations in General Aviation that it is today.
Since 2022, AERO is organized by fairnamic GmbH, a joint venture between Messe Frankfurt and Messe Friedrichshafen.
