What is the HAI HELI-EXPO?
Each year, the HAI HELI-EXPO is where the international helicopter community gathers to build professional connections, stay up-to-date on the latest industry developments, and honor the men and women who represent the best of helicopter aviation. Hosted by the Helicopter Association International (HAI), the event features over 100 educational seminars, over 700 exhibits and the opportunity to network with over 730 industry experts and suppliers.
This year’s event is being held in Atlanta, GA at the Georgia World Congress Center from March 4-7, 2019. You can find Philadelphia’s leading FAA repair station, Sterling Helicopter joining in on the festivities (from March 5-7) at booth #C2103, so make sure you stop by and visit us!
