Conference Background

The Asia Pacific region's civil turbine helicopter fleet stood at 4,086 rotorcraft by the end of 2017, an increase of 3.9% from yearend 2016. The fleet is utilized in a wide-range of mission profiles, with slightly more than half of fleet operating in multi-mission roles and the rest evenly dispersed among the corporate, offshore, law enforcement, SAR and EMS markets. In coming years, the region's offshore Oil&Gas market is also expected to begin a recovery, as oil prices have now risen from their low point and capital expenditures from national, major and independent Oil&Gas companies begin to increase.("*source: Asian Sky Group").We have reason to believe that, in the near future, the Southeast Asia market will enjoy the development.

However, there are some undeniable problems existed in the region, like helicopter safety operation, leasing, maintenance and pilot training.

3rd Civil Helicopter Southeast Asia Summit 2018 will be gathering 300 industry professionals representing relevant government offcials,OEMs,operators,lessors, MROs,insurance companies and leading industry solution providers together, to discuss the development and problem in SEA region.
