Cardinal Helicopter Services exhibited at this year’s Helitech, Europe’s only show focussed 100% on helicopters, at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, near Cambridge.
In its 25th year, the biennial three-day Helitech event attracted a who’s who of industry players from offshore, air medical and VIP charter companies. Two hundred exhibiting companies made the most of the week’s glorious weather as well as an increased visitor interest which matched the high levels of attendance from the previous event in 2009 with more than 5,000 visitors.
Cardinal’s primarily role at Helitech was to promote the Sikorsky S76 for the aircraft manufacturer, Sikorsky, with the Cardinal helicopter featuring as part of a unique display of over 30 static helicopters. Helitech also gave Cardinal its first chance to make face-to-face contact with the industry to promote Cardinal’s service and to meet potential new customers.
During the show Cardinal’s pilots, Captains Richard Cove and Richard Stubbs, were in attendance to answer any questions about the aircraft and met with many of the show’s visitors as well as Cardinal’s supplier partners.
