The general aviation industry is going to wait until 2022 to reconnect and network at AERO. The 2021 edition was cancelled due to government lockdowns and COVID-19 restrictions. It’s simply impossible to host a physical event. The 2022 edition will run from April 27th until April 30th, 2022 at Messe Friedrichshafen and will employ the best coronavirus protective measure to ensure a safe business environment.

Messe Friedrichshafen GmbH already markets AERO 2022 as the restart for the industry. After all, trade fairs and exhibitions remain the most effective method to operate internationally. While you wait, however, organisers are working on a schedule for new digital content, which will be published over the course of the year. 


AERO fulfills the role of the largest platform for debuting aircraft and is also the meeting point between supply and demand in the general aviation sector. The international exhibition takes place in Friedrichshafen every single year in early spring and editions often last four days that are open to both trade visitors and members of the general public. As organiser, Messe Friedrichshafen has delivered the best programming and business opportunities for buyers and exhibitors alike.


  • Law enforcement from around Europe send delegations to witness the live demo area for drone technology;
  • The professional audience currently stands at 32,000 professionals and is only growing;
  • 100 talks and workshops make up a dynamic support program;
  • E-Flight Expo, dedicated to electric aircraft, has been a consistent hit among trade visitors since 2010;
  • The Business Aviation Conference is a brand new item on the programming since 2019.


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. 

Audience & Statistics

From wannabe pilots to senior decision makers, there are over 100 talks and workshops to stimulate and inform.

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.
