Our Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe 2018 conference will be held for a third successful year, returning to Prague, Czech Republic on the 23rd and 24th May 2018.

Our past Helicopter Technology events have been recognised for excellence by many leading defence forces in both Central and Eastern Europe and have hosted more senior heads of Air Force and Helicopter Commands than any other helicopter event in Europe.

As Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic States continue to be a key focus for defence equipment upgrades, the rotary fleet remains a key asset in both domestic and international military operations. Therefore, a focused conference is essential to ensure continued advancement of capability, equipment, and joint interoperability.

Taking place on the 23rd and 24th of May in Prague, Czech Republic, this will be a unique opportunity to meet many heads of Air Force and Helicopter Programme Managers.
