Future Helicopter Technology Conference

Future Helicopter Technology returns for its third consecutive year, this time hosted in Rome, Italy; home to Leonardo-one, the world's leading Helicopter Manufacture and a nation with a deep and rich history of military aviation.

This time around, there will be a unique focus on the complexity of managing a varied helicopter fleet with strategies to upgrade, modernise and improve rotary platforms for modern day warfare and operations.

The program offers a clear overview on major aviation capabilities, current and future challenges to joint operations and Special Forces, maritime deployment of rotary wing aircrafts, and even the latest technological developments on the most advanced helicopter platforms in the world.

Unlike other events, Future Helicopter Technology 2017 will deliver real insight and learning experiences through its expertly selected speakers, who have been recommended through extensive research and consultation carried out across the industry. For 2017, we are delighted to welcome speakers from Germany, Spain, USMC, France, the Royal Navy, NATO, Belgium, Austria and OCCAR.
