AERO (April 27-30, 2022) is not only a meeting place for the industry, where visitors can see new products and innovations live – it is also an important information and discussion platform for the entire industry with its extensive conference and lecture programme.
The conference and lecture programme at AERO is packed. The top-class lectures, presentations and discussions at the AERO Conferences are worth a visit to the trade show in Friedrichshafen alone. Each day of the show will feature over 50 conferences, lectures, product presentations and discussions on all the major industry topics as well as on safety and practical flying topics. The conferences and the duration of the presentations are limited in time to allow the audience to participate in the conferences as well as visit the exhibition halls.
Whereas conferences used to be more of an accessory to a trade show, they are now an indispensable, integral part of AERO and a considerable added value.
One of the major challenges facing aviation, for example, is the preservation of airports in Europe. Without airfields, there can be no aviation. This topic, which is important not only for airfield operators but also for pilots, is the subject of a conference.
Other major challenges include the further reduction of emissions by aviation and the introduction of electric flight, as well as the integration of drones and air taxis into existing airspace structures. Experts will discuss these important topics at various events at AERO.
Practical topics on flying will be the focus of many other presentations. Herwart Goldbach from DFS subsidiary Eisenschmidt GmbH, for example, will once again give his popular and well-attended daily safety lectures - as he has done at past AEROs. But also the topic "Am I fit for the 2022 flying season?" is a safety-relevant issue for many pilots after the restrictions on flying activities during the Corona crisis. Human Factors, Airspace Structures, Radio Failure, Threat & Error Management and "Meteorological Flight Preparation on Mobile Devices" are only a small selection of the wide range of topics at the presentations around practical flying.
AERO visitors will find a particularly comprehensive conference program on helicopter-related topics in Hall B5 as part of the Heliforum. On each of the four days of the trade show, experts will give presentations on helicopter-related tpoics. They will be addressing not only trade visitors but also young people who see their future in the rotorcraft industry. Lectures such as "Becoming a helicopter pilot from a student's point of view", "Training to become a helicopter pilot" or "Your path to aviation technology - training paths and job opportunities with the German Federal Police" are likely to attract particular interest.
Within a short time, drones have established themselves as valuable tools in many areas of application. Detailed information and discussions will be held on their potential in civil protection and public safety during the two-day drone conference at AERO.
The conferences will be held partly in English and partly in German. The complete, extensive conference and lecture program is constantly updated on the AERO website.
