New members in the European Helicopter Association
We are happy to announce that Rusada, Kopter Group, The Air Law Firm, AAR Rotorcraft Services and Senator International have joined EHA. Here are some quotes:
“Joining the EHA has two benefits for us here at Rusada, primarily we get to learn about issues affecting the industry and lend our views where appropriate. Secondly, we get to converse with the community, sharing and learning from each other. Often, we only meet in client support or sales opportunity environments, whereas in the association we are able to have open dialogue and discuss issues with a wide range of views on the same topic.” Tim Alden – Partner and Special Projects Director.
Rusada is a global aviation software provider established in 1987 and headquartered in Switzerland. With operations in the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas, it supports 100+ major customers worldwide with software that manages 2,000 aircraft in 40 countries.
