AERO Friedrichshafen

| International Trade Fair for General Aviation

The AERO in Friedrichshafen is a major international trade fair for general aviation and takes place annually at Lake Constance in Germany. It was founded in 1978 and has since established itself as one of the most important events for the industry. The exhibition attracts trade visitors from all over the world and offers a comprehensive platform for companies to present their latest products, services, and technologies in the fields of aircraft construction, avionics, aircraft accessories, and maintenance. AERO Friedrichshafen covers a wide range of aviation segments, including gliders and microlights, business jets, helicopters, drones, and electric aircraft.

In addition, simulators, pilot equipment, maintenance services, and flight schools are also presented. In addition to the exhibition, AERO Friedrichshafen offers an extensive supporting program consisting of specialist conferences, seminars, and forums. AERO Friedrichshafen promotes dialogue between companies, industry experts, political decision-makers, and research institutions to drive innovation and shape the future of the aviation industry together.

The AERO takes place annually, and therefore for the 31st time previsibly in April 2025 in Friedrichshafen.
