Maroochydore – Here we come
Rob Rich, secretary of the Australian Helicopter Industries Association AHIA, approached to CoaX to attend RotorTech 2014.

We decided to take our 17′ R & D helicopter recently fitted with a Garmin G3X and one of our older 20′ helicopters to the event in Maroochydore QLD.

We were provided with a booth which attracted a great number of attendees. Visitors were drawn to our stand by the outstanding video presentation created by Mike Collins from ImageTraders.

On the Flight Line
We fitted rotor blades and lined up in prime position amongst the dozen or so helicopters that were flown in for the event.

David Earle, John Stewart and Richard Woodward fielded questions non stop for the duration of the 2 day event.

Manned, Unmanned or Optionally Piloted
Peter Batten was requested to make a presentation to AHIA.

He described the progress CoaX Helicopters has made, future directions for CoaX and the discussion point of Optionally Piloted Helicopters.

Most importantly Peter, in conjunction with the AHIA symposium, declared that Pre-orders of the 17′ CoaX helicopters are now open. Details are on the Buy Now page.
