Kopter is pleased to take part in Rotors Switzerland 2022, event organized by the Swiss Aerospace Cluster (SAC) on the 8thof February at the Payerne Airport, Canton of Vaud.
Now part of Leonardo Helicopters and developing the AW09, an all-new single engine helicopter in Switzerland, Kopter is playing a key role within the Swiss helicopter community.
As platinum sponsor, the company brought one prototype of its next generation helicopter to Switzerland’s most important event for the helicopter industry. Furthermore, it participated in the conference programme with a presentation from its CTO, Michele Riccobono, on the hybrid and electric solutions it is currently maturing with technological partners alongside its AW09 helicopter.
Marco Viola, Kopter CEO, commented: “We have been working very closely with SAC over the past years to share our knowledge with other key members that are as well shaping the short and longer-term future of air mobility. Switzerland and its neighboring countries have a longstanding tradition using helicopters. That is why they are very demanding when it comes to the industry bringing safer and more performing solutions. Rotors Switzerland is a perfect platform to allow our community to build stronger ties and create new opportunities of collaboration in that direction.”
