Perfect pitch for Helitech 2009

Helitech 2009 opens with more than 200 exhibiting companies – of which more than 45 are new to Helitech. The organisers anticipate that visitor numbers will be on a par with the last time Helitech was held at Duxford in 2007, a significant achievement in the current economic climate.

The static display area – always a highlight of Helitech – is one of the exhibition’s largest ever showcasing up to 40 rotary craft in a variety of configurations including emergency services, military and VIP interiors. This year the area also includes demonstrations of Red Box International’s AirLift, which elevates a helicopter off the ground so that two can be parked in one space, saving money on expensive hangar space.

In keeping with Helitech’s strategy of bringing together all elements of the rotary wing, inside the exhibition halls there are examples of everything from the latest helicopter surveillance and law enforcement equipment to flight training and simulation packages. There are systems and equipment to support operators, across the spectrum of the industry, as well as accessories and MRO suppliers.

Sue Bradshaw, Exhibition Director of Helitech, said: “With a significant increase in the number of exhibiting companies and our best ever static display we’re looking forward to what we hope will be a busy and productive three days for both exhibitors and visitors alike.”

Notes:
Helitech 2009 takes place from 22-24 September 2009 at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford near Cambridge. The exhibition is supported by both the European Helicopter Association and the British Helicopter Association. www.helitech.co.uk

Here's the Day Two announcement if anyone's interested Wink

Helitech draws the crowds

The first morning of Helitech 2009 saw more than 1,500 visitors streaming into the show, which is taking place at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford near Cambridge until 24 September. This year’s event has attracted just over 200 exhibiting companies representing 21 different countries and taking up around 4,000sq m of floor space.

Sue Bradshaw, the event’s Exhibition Director, said: “There is always a real sense of community in the rotary wing industry and we aim to create an environment that supports and reflects that. As well as catching up with long-standing customers and contacts, Helitech is all about capitalising on a route into the sector for all levels of the rotary supply chain”

In addition to all the business meetings and networking taking place in the hall, a number of exhibitor announcements and events took place.

Eurocopter announced an order for a new EC135 for the West Midlands Police Air Support Unit. Before the new aircraft is delivered next summer, Eurocopter will provide West Midlands Police with a fully equipped EC135 police helicopter, featuring a mission pod, to take over the duties of the aircraft that the force lost recently due to an arson attack.

Meanwhile Sikorsky presented a ceremonial cheque to the RAF Museum, in addition to donating an MH-53 helicopter to the museum. Sergei Sikorsky, son of Igor Sikorsky who founded the US helicopter giant, handed over the cheque.

Outside the exhibition hall, Helitech’s largest ever static display area, showcasing a total of 42 rotary craft in a variety of configurations, was a highlight of the opening day. Additional features in the static display area are provided by Red Box International, demonstrating its space and cost saving AirLift device, and Host Systems showing how its mobile ATC tower is deployed.
