Devil Helitech - UK

Just wondering if anyone from the Rotorheads was coming to the Helitech show at Duxford from the 23rd to the 25th.

Not sure, even though I've got my ticket. Depends on several factors.

1. Whether I've got a job by then.

2. What the weather is like (not aviation weather, I'll be coming by motorbike).

3. Whether Noel Edmonds is turning up this time. If he's there, don't look for me.

Look for a middle-aged-ish very grey-haired individual of average height wearing glasses in a cheap dark suit carrying a battered briefcase. If you get close enough I might be wearing a badge saying 'aka Hilico'.

Yes plus a couple of friends. Its woth going I find, if only to renew free subscription to Rotor and Wing, which despite me doing so, on each occasion, deliveries ceased after about four issues. Anyone else had the same problem.

I'll be there - I'm off shift (our police force don't waste council taxpayers dosh by sending the crew there...) and fancy going to stay with kid bruv down the road from Duxford for a couple of nights. He'll be the one blagging all the freebies off the stalls; he even managed a Gerber tool last Helitech, jammy sod.

I'll be there, journo's notepad in hand. But hey!... don't let that put you off strolling up, shaking me warmly by the hand and offering to buy me lunch...(Well, Hey!...I am a freelance journalist ya know!)

Seriously though, I'll be trawling for truth at the show. If you feel you've got something interesting you want or need to share, be it ON or OFF the record, try to find me. I'll be the thin guy with gold rim glasses, grey hair and a Billingham camera bag on his shoulder. Or leave a message at the press office and I'll find you.

Also, if you are one of those ppruners who think all journo's are the unprincipled son of satan, still come and find me. If you are genuinely interested I will try to explain (without excusing) the inner workings of the media,,, and maybe that will help.

Steve - If you are awaiting a gearbox from MD then I wouldnt plan on flying the 600 for quite a few months yet.

To all those wanting to attend Helitech. If I can help anyone get passes am happy to do so. Just send me a PM with names and details and will assist where possible.

Can anyone please help me out with the co-ordinates alternatively the address of the main entrance to the exhibition?

I don't want to walk more than necessary if I don't find a taxi at the local train station.

Anyone going to Helitech interested in talking to a couple of SAR Boys who want to discuss role equipment, consultancy, new business, starting-out, sponsorship, etc? If so drop me a note in my PM slot.

As a newly qualified pilot Helitech sounds like something I should be attending. Am I correct - what am I going to see there?

YBMC - my target market is the small-ish operation with 3-10 machines and accompanying crewing level. Almost none of them have stands at Helitech because 'we're too busy trying to make money'. Eurocopter and Bell would be there, Bristows were last time, and there were all sorts of manufacturers of ancilliaries. It's very probable that none of them would be interested in what I write and sell.

Hence it's probably not worth my while from the sales point of view. Luckily there is reason 2 - I'm mad about helicopters so I'd go anyway. Hey, that's why I started writing aviation software in the first place.
