China Hosts Helo Meetings
The first China Helicopter Exposition was scheduled to be held in Tianjin from September 15 to 18. Organizers expected approximately 200 exhibitors, including all major helicopter manufacturers. AOPA China’s helicopter fly-in, scheduled for September 22 through 24, was postponed after the fatal crash of a Beijing City Police Department helicopter raised questions about airspace accessibility. Meanwhile, a conference on general aviation and air rescue, “AirMed and Rescue Congress China 2011,” is scheduled take place in Shanghai on October 11 and 12.
