Messe Friedrichshafen, where the event is held, is open to visitors from 9 am until 6 pm with the last day wrapping up an hour early. It’s at this event that manufacturers make their latest aircraft models available for consideration and these include business jets, single and twin-engine planes and helicopters. AERO (also referred to as AERO Friedrichshafen) also covers used planes, drones, engines, air sports equipment, as well as pilot and cabin equipment. 

From wannabe pilots to senior decision makers, there are over 100 talks and workshops to stimulate and inform. Although commercial airlines and pilots are a regular sight, AERO also attracts members of search and rescue services and law enforcement to come to Friedrichshafen, Germany. Given the extensive product portfolio that reaches beyond just exhibiting planes and helicopters, AERO has positioned itself as a benchmark exhibition for innovation in aviation and aerospace technology. This reputation is only strengthened through the wide-ranging support program.
