Dear Member

I suspect many of you have had little or no break over the past few weeks
Again, the AHIA acknowledges with pride the ongoing outstanding work by all involved in the efforts to bring the fires under control and in supporting the many devastated communities.

I have noticed an increasing respect for the helicopter industry. Even in Canberra, government aviation entities are being more helpful.
It is likely that this change in behaviour has been ordered from the top. It would be a very good thing for our industry if this small step forward could be made permanent.

Next week I will attend Heli-Expo in LA. The primary task is to encourage as many companies and individuals as possible to attend Rotortech 2020 in June this year. The AHIA wants members and participants to have access to the highest quality speakers and exhibitors. With 1500 to 2000 attendees likely to come to Rotortech2020 it is sure to be a great convention, even historic in terms of the Australian helicopter industry.
My trip is being made possible through the generosity of our partners at Avalon. They are thanked sincerely.

We are updating the AHIA website and you will notice some changes in the coming weeks.

With the help of the Avalon Comms team we hope to finally be able to produce a quarterly members e-newsletter. The more informal CEO monthly updates will continue.

Our current IT system is being updated over the next month which should mean faster and more detailed information sharing with members and the wider aviation industry.

I want to thank the members and potential members who contact me personally. Your ideas and feedback are essential to the ongoing growth and strengthening of the AHIA.

Finally, if you know of any company or individual who would benefit from AHIA membership refer them to me, or to our website.

Your association has access to the most senior people in government and industry. Let’s make use of it The time has never been more favourable.

AHIA Update - Good News

Paul, know you guys are very busy. But an upgrade of the website (which looks good) will be time well spent.

In the meantime, President Ray, has a column in VTOL e-news Asia-Pacific which is informative and looks to the future.
