Tomorrow (Tuesday 27 September) Helitech opens with one of its most impressive line-ups of static aircraft. Nearly 40 helicopters will be gracing the tarmac outside the exhibition halls with OEMs such as AgustaWestland fielding the light-weight, twin-engine multi-purpose AW109 Grand New. The company will also be showing the PZL W-3 Sokół medium-size, twin-engine, multipurpose helicopter manufactured by AgustaWestland Świdnik; and a mock-up of the AW189, a new generation multi-purpose twin-engine 8-tonne class helicopter.

Aeriades, the French regional aerospace cluster, will be displaying a prototype of Heli Air Design’s HAD-1, a 2-seat light helicopter which will initially come in kit form.

A Bell JetRanger is appearing courtesy of Apple International, while Cotswold Helicopter Centre is featuring the new Guimbal Cabri G2, a two-seat light piston-engined helicopter.

From Enstrom Helicopter Corp comes the 5-seat Enstrom 480B, while Eurocopter will be showcasing the EC135, a twin-engine helicopter widely used by police and ambulance services, and the EC120, 5-seat, single-engine light helicopter.
