Helitech organizers have axed the Portuguese edition of the event that was happening every other year. Two shows took place, in 2008 and 2010, at Cascais airport, near Lisbon. But the organizers now believe that Southern Europe economies are not strong enough to support the event, a source close to Reed Exhibitions told AIN. The company will now have to face some sort of competition. In even years, starting in September 2012, a show dubbed The Helicopter Show will take place in Silverstone, UK
