Innovations, premieres and new products - General aviation will be out in full force at Lake Constance: More than 600 companies from around the world will ensure a strong showing at the AERO, the global show for general aviation, from April 20 to 23, 2016. The spectrum of general aviation is broad: vintage gliders, single- and multi-engine piston-driven airplanes, helicopters, gyrocopters, turboprops and multi-engine jets will be on display. Drones, new aircraft engines and avionics, aviation accessories and services, as well as flight school offerings round out the program. At the same time, the special theme areas e-flight-expo, Avionics Avenue, Engine Area and AERODrones RPAS EXPO will feature new content. With the slogan "Be a pilot”, the AERO is promoting the dream of flight and thereby motivating the next generation of pilots.

Messe Friedrichshafen CEO Klaus Wellmann and AERO project leader Roland Bosch are purposefully focusing on new impulses: "a technically-oriented trade show like the AERO must also show how fascinating the subject of flight is,” emphasized Roland Bosch. That is why encouraging the next generation of pilots is also a major goal of the Messe Friedrichshafen team. For this reason, for the first time, entrance to the show will be free of charge for all visitors under 16 years old, something which previously only applied to young people under 14.
