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.

EDITORIAL COMMENT
What's new?

NEWS
• Safety checks introduced for S-92s worldwide
• First shipborne Ka-226T rolled out
• Waypoint bullish on oil recovery
• Reopened K-Max line delivers first airframe
• Airbus Helicopters shines light on sales

PLATFORM PUSH
With its civil models largely defying the industry downturn, Bell Helicopter is keen to pioneer new technology and present itself as the face of innovation in rotorcraft today.

BUYER'S MARKET
Low demand and excess supply has seen the second-hand helicopter industry suffer, with market devaluation and oil and gas prices playing a role. However, stabilisation is in sight.

AHEAD OF THE CURVE
Concerns over the signal strength from traditional GPS navigation have led to the development of new technologies to deflect interference and improve accuracy.

SWEPT AWAY
Shape, tip, material and power all play a part in rotor technology, with modern designs favouring more blades and reduced noise levels.

HEADING THE CHARGE
Attempts to harness the potential of electrical propulsion on conventional manned helicopter designs from various OEMs have never gone beyond the test phase. A new challenger has emerged that is taking a decidedly different approach.

INTERNAL AFFAIRS
The luxury helicopter is fast becoming a worthy competitor to the private jet as the aircraft of choice for corporate and VIP customers, and in some instances is even the preferred option.

ONE STOP DROP
The extreme nature of recent summer seasons in Spain is such that having a sufficient fire-fighting capability is paramount, with helicopters a vital component.

CYPRIOT SENTINELS
The Cyprus Police Aviation Unit's small fleet of helicopters performs a diverse range of tasks in a country confronted with an increasingly complex geopolitical situation.

SIMULATION ROCKS
Cardiff Aviation provides MRO, training/simulation and leasing services from its base in St Athan, Wales, but unlike other such companies it has a world-famous heavy metal singer as its chairman.

COLLECTIVE PITCH
OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS
Andreas Loewenstein, CEO of Marenco Swisshelicopter, pushes for more innovation in light turbine helicopter design and a fresh approach to produce versatile, safer and more cost-effective models.
