The global rotorcraft world is changing dramatically, and so to keep abreast of these rapidly changing events we at Shephard are pleased to publish what is THE business information source for the civil, public service and corporate rotorcraft market.

The Shephard Team, with their extensive experience gained through the company’s publishing portfolio and the global news-wire, www.rotorhub.com, in addition to their incisive international conference and exhibition expertise, have tracked market trends and after extensive research have formulated all of their knowledge into a strong information channel.

The magazine delivers the viewpoint you need to help take your business forward and plan for the future. It keeps readers up to date on trends and deals with all the key economic, regulatory, technological, financial and political issues that are driving the fastest period of growth the rotorcraft world has seen for decades.

No other magazine currently provides such important content for rotorcraft operators, contractors or industry suppliers and we intend to create a forum for you, the decision makers of the industry, to have your say.
