FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany — This year’s AERO, the largest general aviation show in Europe, boasted 606 exhibitors from 35 countries, and 33,400 visitors, compared to 32,600 in 2013.
Project manager Roland Bosch noted: “In talks with exhibitors, we confirmed in the final days of the fair that the upswing in the general aviation industry is continuing. Bookings for the next AERO are already running at full speed.”
Among items that attracted interest this year were the 18 propellers of the newly developed electric helicopter “Volocopter.” It was at the e-flight-expo. Several exhibitors presented production-ready electric aircraft with batteries or hybrid drive. Solar power also was a much-discussed topic at the aviation show.
The next AERO will take place April 15-18, 2015.
