30th AERO Friedrichshafen Ends As Resounding Success

30th AERO Friedrichshafen Wraps

The 30th edition of AERO Friedrichshafen (April 17 - 20, 2024), the leading global trade fair for General Aviation, Air Sports and Business Aviation, has come to a successful close. "We already had high expectations for the anniversary AERO, but the trade fair far exceeded our expectations this year despite the far from ideal weather conditions," says Stefan Reisinger, Managing Director of trade fair organizer fairnamic GmbH.

 

Tobias Bretzel, Show Director AERO, adds: "Over 680 exhibitors from 38 countries and the high number of visitors from all over the world underline the international significance of AERO. The many European and world premieres show that the exhibitors meet a very knowledgeable and international audience. Visitors were able to see over 270 aircraft in the exhibition halls and in the static display -- from motor trikes to ultralights, touring and training aircraft and long-range business jets." In the latest survey, over 53 percent of AERO visitors stated that they had a pilot's license.

Among the premieres at the show were the electrically powered eDA40 aircraft from Diamond Aircraft in Austria, the electric aircrafts RX-1E-A from Rhyen Aircraft Industry Co. Ltd. in China and the Integral E from French manufacturer Aura Aero, the Piper M700 FURY single-engine turboprop aircraft from Piper Aircraft in Vero Beach, Florida, and the Phoenix motor glider from JMB Aircraft in Belgium and the Czech Republic.

In Zeppelin CAT Hall A1, the largest hall at the exhibition center, all major glider manufacturers were represented at the AERO Gliding Expo. The new concept for this segment with its own conference area was well received.

Helicopters have also become an integral part of AERO. Visitors were able to view 20 helicopters, including -- for the first time ever at a trade fair -- all current production models from Robinson Helicopter Company from Torrance, California. Leonardo Helicopters from Italy was represented at AERO for the first time and exhibited two helicopters: the AW109 GrandNew and the AW139. The extensive lecture program as part of the HeliForum of the DHV (Deutscher Hubschrauber Verband e.V. -- German Helicopter Association) was well attended and offered up-to-date information on all aspects of rotorcraft.

The three-day AERO Drones has firmly established itself as a trade fair for unmanned aerial vehicles. The Björn Steiger Foundation and Mintmasters GmbH used the exhibition to present their newly developed rescue system "RescueBee" for the first time worldwide. It supports rescue teams in their search for people in distress, for example in the event of swimming accidents, and consists of one or more drones, a hangar and an emergency telephone.

The AERO Conferences offered the most extensive lecture and presentation program in the history of the trade fair. As part of the 30th anniversary edition, the AERO General Aviation (GA) Academy was introduced. It is characterized by high-quality training and further education offers in various areas of aviation. Every day, numerous lectures were offered on topics such as powered flight, soaring, engine handling, instrument flight, meteorology, aviation law and insurance, which met with great interest from the public.

Aviation is changing, and General Aviation with all its segments is an incubator for new technologies and innovations that will also influence the commercial aviation of the future. Visitors to AERO were able to get a good overview of the industry's activities towards more sustainability. The AERO Sustainable Aviation Trail highlighted exhibitors who are particularly committed to sustainability by means of a special marking with green balloons that was clearly visible to visitors.

AERO is now a globally recognized brand. In addition the event in Friedrichshafen, fairnamic GmbH organizes AERO South Africa (3 - 5 July 2024) in cooperation with Frankfurt Messe South Africa, and AERO Asia (6 - 9 November 2025) together with the Zhuhai Airshow Group in China. This year, for the first time, the AERO Fly-In "Future meets History" (August 31/September 1, 2024) will take place at the Aalen-Elchingen airfield in cooperation with Luftsportring Aalen and Luftraum Süd.

The next AERO will take place from April 9 - 12, 2025 in Friedrichshafen.
