July 7, 2009 – The helicopter OEMs are exhibiting in force at Helitech 2009. AgustaWestland, Bell Helicopter Textron, Enstrom, Eurocopter, MDHelicopters and Sikorsky will all be participating in Europe’s largest dedicated exhibition for the rotary wing industry, which takes place at the Duxford Imperial War Museum, near Cambridge, UK from 22-24 September 2009.
Visitors will also be able to see the latest offerings from BAE Systems, CAE, Cobham, FlightSafety International, Goodrich Corporation, Honeywell, L-3 Communications–Wescam, Lockheed Martin, Pratt & Whitney Canada, Rolls-Royce, RUAG Aerospace, Standard Aero and Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services.
But Helitech is not just for the majors – companies of all sizes from across the supply chain and around the world will be there, making Helitech a significant global showcase for the whole spectrum of products, systems and support services.
The enthusiastic response from industry indicates a robust and positive approach to meeting the challenges of tough market conditions. As a senior representative of one of the companies exhibiting at Helitech put it, “Often the fear of what might happen can cause companies to back themselves into a corner”.
One of the main attractions of Helitech for visitors is that the event reflects the latest developments within the rotary wing sector. The crucial importance of safety systems and training has been further highlighted by recent accidents in the oil & gas sector. At the same time the economic squeeze is causing operators in the parapublic and commercial sectors to keep existing platforms and equipment operational for longer periods, creating demand for those involved with service delivery, together with manufacturers of parts and components.
Helitech’s Exhibition Director, Sue Bradshaw, said, “This is the 13th time that Helitech has been staged but the indications are that the event will continue to go from strength to strength.”
