AHIA The week that was ending 21 Feb ’16.


New e-news service. AHIA will reintroduce Helicopters Australasia to help
with the now increased AHIA communication needs. The first edition, in a few
days, will be the February Report, which looks back in detail at February’s
helicopter developments and issues in Australia and New Zealand. Industry
members are encouraged to tell us any news items they think are of interest
to the helicopter industry. Just email the undersigned, it is a free
service. In this edition we will look closely at the good helicopter news
coming from post-Singapore Airshow reports.



Rotortech 2016. Fri 27 to Sun 29 May 2016. Attached is the latest
allocations of booths for the 50 exhibitors at our coming event. Expressions
of interest are requested from speakers. Call Rob – 0415 641 774. Delegate
bookings will be accepted soon; we are just finalising the conference
program for you.


Please join us: Included is an application form – send to a friend. We need
your help with funding so we can work more closely with the regulator to
streamline troublesome rules before they become mandatory and costly
requirements. If we don’t, then unintentional cost overruns may price us out
of business and also make us non-competitive for the training of overseas
students from Asia, etc.


March Madness. Students at AHIA member flying schools are offered a free
Concession Membership so they can keep abreast of the enormous changes
occurring in Australia with the restructuring of CASA and the unwinding of
much of the Flight Crew Licensing, Part 61 legislation. Both are scheduled
to be completed by 30 June 2016 – which isn’t too far away.


Kindest regards,


Rob Rich
