AERO is Taking Off With a Wide Range of Exhibits

AERO, held from Wednesday to Saturday, April 24 – 27 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, will feature 630 exhibitors from 35 countries.

What's more, AERO is introducing many innovations and new products, a number of which were presented during a special "innovation tour" on Tuesday: FK-Lightplanes - B&F Technik Vertriebs GmbH, a company based inSpeyer,Germany, is showing a new ultralight aircraft in retro design. The plane is an exact reproduction of a Bücker Jungmann from the 1930s, but with a modern addition: a parachute rescue system. The Cessna 182 with a diesel engine has an appealing new feature. In addition to being economical, it can run on widely available kerosene instead of expensive avgas aviation fuel. An innovation from Cirrus Design can save lives and aircraft: The Cirrus SR 22 is equipped with a parachute system that can not only rescue passengers in an emergency, but also allow the entire aircraft to gently float back down to earth.

AERO 2013 starts on Wednesday, 24 April and continues until Saturday, 27 April 2013. Opening hours: Wednesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Further information is available at:
