On March 7, our Head of Sales, Joe Radosky, had the opportunity to attend the world’s largest helicopter exposition and trade show, HAI Heli-Expo. The event brings together more than 20,000 helicopter industry professionals from all over the world to see the latest in vertical-lift manufacturing, equipment, and avionics.

“It’s always a wonderful opportunity to see what’s happening in any of the aviation sectors,” said Radosky. “With more than 700 exhibitors and more than 60 aircraft on display, there was a lot to see.”

Heli-Expo has approximate 20,000 industry professionals who attend, including 20% from international destinations. Their next expo is Feb. 26 to Mar. 1 in Las Vegas.
