The RotorTech 2020 Helicopter and Unmanned Flight Exposition is the premier industry event for the Helicopter/Rotary Wing and RPAS/UAV/eVTOL community in Australia, New Zealand and the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
Held in conjunction with the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA), RotorTech 2020 will provide a vital interface between industry, regulators and government, including:
RotorTech 2020 will host conferences by the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA) and Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS), plus OEM Manufacturers Workshops supported by the Aviation Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Business Association (AMROBA).
Reflecting the rise of Remote Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS, or UAVs) in several helicopter-related markets, RotorTech 2020 will include unmanned aerial vehicles and coverage of the opportunities and challenges they provide for helicopter operators.
ROTORTECH 2018 was an unprecedented success, attracting 95 exhibitors for an exposition including three days of conferences with 30 speakers across some 22 sessions on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
The conference covered major themes from aerial firefighting to new Civil Aviation Safety Authority performance categories, helicopters and airports and the commercial and safety impact of unmanned aerial vehicles. It also saw presentation of the Australian Helicopter Industry Association’s inaugural annual industry awards at a gala dinner.
Dramatic growth in demand for the event has prompted organisers to settle on the RICC at the Brisbane Showgrounds as a larger, more easily accessible venue with world class audio visual facilities and integrated conference centre for RotorTech 2020.
The exposition will be conducted by Aerospace Australia Limited which is part of a not-for-profit group headed by Aerospace Maritime and Defence Foundation of Australia Limited. Members of the group also organise events promoting Australia's industry, manufacturing and technological resources in the aviation, aerospace, maritime, defence and security sectors, including the biennial Australian International Airshow and Aerospace and Defence Exposition at Avalon Airport, Victoria.
