Heli-Futures
September 26, 2018 - September 27, 2018 Alexandria, VA

Join us to discuss how we can attract, train, and develop the pilots and maintenance technicians who will be the rotorcraft workforce of the future.

Date: Sept. 26–27, 2018
Location: HAI Headquarters
Schedule: Agenda

In March of this year, Helicopter Foundation International (HFI) commissioned a study by the University of North Dakota to evaluate the supply and demand of pilots and mechanics in the helicopter industry. The study projects significant shortages of both pilots and maintenance technicians over the next 18 years.

Let’s work together to create action plans to address the reasons for the shortages and ensure that our industry has a high-quality, sustainable workforce.

Space is limited, RSVP soon to ensure availability.
