Industry Meetings

HAI HELI-EXPO is where the international vertical flight industry gathers to address common issues. This year, you’ll have opportunities to connect with regulators, members of the aerial firefighting and offshore communities, and leaders of affiliate rotorcraft associations from around the world.

Meet the Regulators

Monday, March 7, 2022 | 8:30 am – 9:30 am

Join us for our annual “Meet the Regulators” panel. This year, we’ve expanded the panel to include representatives from international civil aviation authorities. The group will provide insight on several topics, including flight standards, certification, maintenance, and unmanned aircraft systems (UASs). Come learn how international regulations align—and how they can differ, as well. This is a great opportunity to hear from regulatory experts on current initiatives that could affect the vertical flight industry. We look forward to seeing you there!

Offshore Forum

Tuesday, March 8, 2022 | 10:00 am – 11:30 am

At this forum, we’ll review and discuss the new “Master Minimum Helideck Equipment List.” In addition, the Helicopter Safety Advisory Conference’s new recommended practice for offshore operations will be presented and discussed.

HAI Global Leadership Forum

Wednesday, March 9, 2022 │ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

The international vertical aviation industry comprises a diverse group of stakeholders from around the world, all of whom have the same goal: promote and sustain a safe and cost-effective vertical flight industry on a global scale. It is critical that sharing and collaboration be entwined in the fabric of our industry. By sharing best practices, working for alignment and harmonization, and focusing on safety, we all can contribute to the advancement of the industry and an improved safety environment. The Global Leadership Forum provides an opportunity for you to hear from leaders from across the industry, to understand global priorities, and to learn about solutions to some of our industry’s biggest issues.
