Tony Skinner, Editor of Rotorhub magazine, talks us through the top five things to look out for at Heli Expo 2015 in Orlando. 

The much anticipated unveiling of the new offering from Airbus Helicopters is a must-see for this year’s show. The new aircraft will be a successor to the company's AS365 Dauphin and EC155.

AgustaWestland is showcasing the AW609, a tiltrotor aircraft for the civil market. The company also has an aircraft under cover, which is understood to be an upgraded AW139. 

Avicopter is making another appearance at Heli Expo showing off their new light twin turbo helicopter. 

Bell Helicopter has its entire commercial portfolio on display, including the new 505 and the 525. The question for Bell now is how the company is going to upgrade the range further to press its insurgence within the market. 

While all the main players are present, there are also new offerings from companies such as New Zealand-based Composite Helicopters International. The company is displaying two rotorcraft for the first time: the KC630 and the KC650.
