The helicopter market is enjoying long-term, structural prosperity of historic dimensions. Never before has there been such demand for the special qualities of rotorcraft. Nor have civilian and military OEM coffers ever been so full.

On the minds of all helicopter industry insiders these days is one burning question: How long will the good times last? And what are the best ways to take advantage of this prosperity, while they can? Anyone who flies, operates, builds, maintains, or outfits rotorcraft will find this webinar of practical use for their careers and their businesses.

Since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, military and homeland defense budgets have experienced healthy increases every year, to the point where Pentagon spending is now back to Cold War levels. Much of this funding has gone to helicopters, which are considered the perfect tools for fighting terrorism and the asymmetrical guerrilla wars of the 21st century.

Meanwhile, in the civilian helicopter sector, operators in all niches continue to enjoy robust demand for their services. In turn, manufacturers report backlogs that stretch far into the future.

Sure, times are good, but many questions remain.

As the global economy enters recession, can the helicopter market maintain its unprecedented growth? If a downturn is imminent, how can various helicopter industry segments protect themselves? If growth will continue in 2008, as most analysts seem to think, then what’s the best way to leverage this growth for maximum advantage?

You’ll learn:

  • Which helicopter sectors stand to see the best growth in the year ahead? A breakdown of prospects in the police, fire, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), utility, tourism, oil and gas, and VIP transport markets.
  • What are the hottest helicopter models right now, and why?
  • Which helicopter airframe OEMs are gaining market share – and which are falling behind?
  • What’s the status of major pending military contracts? A rundown of the imminent winners -- and losers. Are European-based firms finally making significant inroads in Pentagon and U.S. Coast Guard contracts?
  • What are the latest advancements in helicopter avionics? How are new electronics in the cockpit changing helicopter missions and flight profiles?
  • What are the latest innovations in Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) and other types of helicopter-related equipment?
  • What’s new in the much-needed development of helicopter infrastructure – e.g., helipads and heliports? Are operators getting the help they need, or are they still stymied by NIMBY (Not in My Backyard)?

…and lots more!
