Shephard rotary editor Helen Haxell got a sneak peak of the exhibition floor at this year's Heli-Expo in Las Vegas before the big opening on 28 February.
The show promises to be a busy three days with safety remaining a key priority for the entire industry. The big OEMs will also battle it out as Bell rebrands and Airbus Helicopters looks to shake up the medium market with the introduction of the H160, which is making its international debut in Las Vegas.
Second-hand Black Hawk helicopters from the US Army are also a big focus for the show with several on display in various configurations.
