Brealey Aviation attends Helitech International Amsterdam RAI

 

 Over 2500 attendees from 59 countries, including Brealey Aviation, attended Europe's largest rotorcraft exhibition and conference, which included a diverse Education Programme covering key issues within the civil and parapublic helicopter sectors. A total of 180 companies representing 22 countries exhibited including over 65 first-time exhibitors.
 
Helitech International enabled companies to showcase their latest innovations to an international audience. This year's show provided BAE Systems with a platform to promote its head-up display (HUD) and helmet mounted display (HMD) systems to the civil rotorcraft market. The company's equipment is used on advanced military platforms, such as the Eurofighter Typhoon, but reductions in size and weight have opened up possibilities for civil applications.
 
Other exhibitors showcasing new products and technologies included Pall Aerospace with its PB110D PUREair dry barrier filters for the Bell 206L and 407 helicopters, Blue SkyNetwork which featured two new satellite communication technology solutions, and ATC with a compact mobile ATC unit designed for helipads and heliports. Making its first European appearance was the StartStick start battery from Telemeter Electronics.
 
The Education Programme at this year's Helitech International made a significant contribution to the success of the event.The Business and Strategy Conference, which was staged on 14 October, attracted a large audience which heard Jonathan Baliff, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bristow Group, outlining the urgent need for sharing safety practices. He reiterated that there is 'no profit without safety' and detailed the latest industry collaboration on safety through an initiative called HeliOffshore.
 
The safety theme was continued on the second day of the event with the EHA Rotorcraft Seminars while the last day saw the European Helicopter Safety Team (EHEST) and the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) staging a Safety Workshop focusing on key elements impacting rotorcraft safety.
 
Helitech International Event Director, John Hyde, said: "This was the first time that Helitech International had been staged outside the UK and there is no doubt that the show has successfully transitioned from a regional to a truly global event. The feedback to date from exhibitors and visitors has been very encouraging as many have commented on the fact that they met visitors from countries they had not previously engaged. We now look forward to the next event which will be held at ExCeL in London from 6-8 October 2015."
