Preparations Continue for Multi-Faceted European Rotors 2023

The organizers of European Rotors are preparing for their biggest show yet, held in Madrid, Spain, Nov. 27–30, 2023, in Hall 9 of the IFEMA MADRID Convention Centre, approximately 10 minutes from the Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (LEMD). In addition to the European Helicopter Association EHA and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Spanish Helicopter Association ATAIRE is co-hosting the event this year.

“The attendees and exhibitors from the first two shows taught us that we need to think bigger,” says Christian Müller, EHA Chairman. “In addition to providing exceptional business opportunities, the purpose of European Rotors is to bring the community together to exchange knowledge, learn from one another, and debate with one shared goal: to improve safety in vertical aviation operations.”

European Rotors continues to cover all aspects of the rotorcraft industry: its many stakeholders; new technologies, innovations, and methodologies; and all mission types, including air-ambulance services and search-and-rescue (SAR); police and public safety; aerial work and disaster relief; passenger transport; and advanced air mobility (AAM).

The first day of the show, Mon., Nov. 27, focuses solely on safety, with the renown EASA VTOL symposium as a stand-alone event. Admission to the symposium is an exclusive benefit available only to people who purchase the one-day and three-day ticket to the European Rotors show floor, which will be open Nov. 28–30.

“EASA’s primary focus is safe flight throughout the European Union,” says David Solar, head of the General Aviation and VTOL Department at EASA. “This event allows us to work directly with the industry’s manufacturers, suppliers, operators and individuals. We use this show to collaborate with everyone on developing the latest and smartest safety programs.”

The Nov. 27 symposium provides attendees with several networking opportunities, including two coffee breaks and a social event that evening.

European Rotors benefits from the strong support of market-leading VTOL original equipment manufacturers Airbus, Bell, Leonardo and Safran. Robinson, Boeing, Pratt & Whitney and others have already signed up as exhibitors. Attendees can expect a dynamic show floor in Madrid. Last year’s edition featured more than 211 exhibitors from 57 countries and nearly 4,000 attendees.
