The European Rotorcraft Forum is one of the premier events in the rotorcraft community’s calendar bringing together manufacturers, research centres, academia, operators and regulatory agencies to discuss advances in research, development, design, manufacturing, testing and operation of rotorcraft. The Forum takes place annually across Europe, rotating around the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Russia. The first ERF was held in Southampton, England, in 1975. In 2018 the 44th European Rotorcraft Forum will be organised in Delft, The Netherlands from September 18-20. The vital importance of safety in rotary wing operations is highlighted by the Helicopter Safety Workshop on the final day of ERF, hosted by the EASA Rotorcraft Sectorial Committee (RSC) and the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST). On September 20th, the morning sessions of the workshop will focus on scientific developments and the afternoon on operational aspects. ERF participants have free entrance to the workshop.
