AERO 2016 In Friedrichshafen Will Have 600 Exhibitors
The AERO Friedrichshafen will take off with about 600 exhibitors from April 20 to 23, 2016. In 2016, the focus of Europe’s largest general aviation trade fair will stretch from light aircraft and helicopters to business jets. At the same time, special thematic focus areas like the e-flight expo, Avionics Avenue, the Aero Conferences, the Engine Area and AERODrones will return in 2016. The Aviation and Pilots Competence Center will be oriented towards the next generation of potential pilots. The international aviation exhibition is now up to 80 percent booked according to CEO Klaus Wellman.
[pullquote align=”left” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]For the upcoming AERO, we specifically want to strengthen our appeal to visitors who have not yet learned to fly.With the ‘Be a Pilot’ slogan we want to show that it is relatively easy to become a pilot[/pullquote]
The globally influential leading European trade show for small aircraft will again present the entire spectrum of general aviation: Single- and multi-engine piston-driven airplanes, helicopters, gyrocopters, turboprops and multi-engine jets for business travel will be showcased. They will be joined by new aircraft engines and avionics, aviation accessories and services, as well as flight schools.
Four thematic pillars of this specialized trade show – the AERO Conference, the Engine Area, Avionics Avenue and the Aviation and Pilots Competence Center (APCC) have established themselves and will again offer the latest important industry information. The Engine Area will show off modern aircraft engines from the widest range of manufacturers that are based on electric, combustion or hybrid technology. Innovative propulsion systems will also be there, especially those that are very economical, light or quiet.
For the second time, the AERO will also offer the Aviation and Pilots Competence Center. This area is targeted not just at pilots, but at everyone interested in aviation who could see themselves attending flight school. Information and offers from flight schools are available at the center, but it also serves as a point of contact to government agencies and interest groups such as the Luftfahrt Bundesamt, EASA, AOPA, the Deutscher Wetterdienst, the German national meteorological service, and Deutsche Flugsicherung, the German air traffic control organization.
Visitors can get information about especially attractive flight training options that make getting their own pilot’s license easier and less expensive, such as training in the 120-kilogram class of ultralight aircraft, glider training starting for ages fourteen and above, or training in the new ultralight helicopter category which is expected to be created in Germany. The AERO 2016 will begin on Wednesday, April 20 and last until Saturday, April 23, 2016. More information is available at www.aero-expo.com.
