Helicopters, with their unique flying characteristics, are indispensable tools and an important part of General Aviation. Their ability to take-off and land vertically opens them up to a wide range of applications. Helicopters help security agencies fight crime, support search and rescue missions, transport patients to hospitals, support the maintenance of offshore installations, inspect rail lines and power lines, and fly heavy loads to construction sites with pinpoint accuracy and without the need for costly ground infrastructure. In the Helicopter Hangar in Hall B5, visitors will find new and proven helicopter models in a wide range of categories. Helicopter manufacturers and distributors, helicopter operators and service providers as well as suppliers for helicopter operations will be presenting their services and products.
The German Helicopter Association (DHV) has been involved in AERO Friedrichshafen for many years with a joint member pavilion stand and organizes, a comprehensive, trade fair-accompanying four day conference in the Heli-Forum, which is dedicated exclusively to topics relating to rotorcraft.
