HeliExpo 2016 Recap

Share This Post

Time is flying, isn’t it? It feels like just yesterday we were down in Louisville, KY for this year’s Heli Expo. This is always a highlight of our year because it’s a great way for us to connect with other helicopter companies big and small and see what is trending in the industry. It was a great time and so fun seeing some new and old faces (we even spotted Sergei Sikorsky!). One of the coolest thing was being able to explore Churchill Downs and get some great night views of the racetrack. This is a beautiful venue and being down there got us so excited for warm weather and horse racing season!

Other fun highlights included Heather getting a chance to fly the little grey beauty in this last picture (an MD530F, so awesome), and getting to check out Robinson’s new R44 cadet for the first time. Overall, it was an awesome trip and we are already gearing up for next year.
