Summit Background

There are more 1,137 operational turbine helicopters in South-East Asia region by end of 2018 and we see a fleet growth from the industry recovery. 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 expected to begin a recovery, as oil prices have now raised from their low point and capital expenditures from national, major and independent Oil & Gas companies begin to increase.

Civil Helicopter South-East Asia Summit (CHSEAS) is the event organized in South-East Asia region every year, it aims at gathering government and civil helicopter industry professionals together to update and discuss on the market to develop the industry. It’s one of members of OPPLAND civil helicopter series events in Asia.

Civil Helicopter Series – Now, it’s 10th edition, a successful international conference and exhibition.
