Conference Documentation: Helicopter Technology Eastern Europe 2016

Conference Documentation: Helicopter Technology Eastern Europe 2016

Helicopter Technology Eastern Europe 2016 returns for a second successful year, this time to Budapest Hungary in May 2016.

Our inaugural event was recognized for excellence by many leading defence forces in both central and eastern Europe and hosted more senior heads of Air Force and Helicopter Commands than any other event in Europe.

As Eastern Europe and The Baltic States continue to be a key focus for defence equipment upgrades, the rotary fleet remains a key asset in both domestic and international military operations and therefore a focused conference is essential to ensure continued advancement of capability, equipment and joint interoperability.

Taking place on the 19th and 20th of May in Budapest Hungary, at no other event will you get the opportunity to meet so many heads of Air Force and Helicopter Programme Managers.
