At the recent and very successful RotorTech held in Brisbane we were given a great opportunity to network with our colleagues and industry professionals in person a luxury not afforded our industry for over three years.
As part of Rotortech we ran a conference with some very informative presentations given by manufacturers, safety panels, ATSB and our board. One standout passionate presentation was given by one of our industry’s legends, John Armstrong, who particularly emphasised the risks of low-level operations.
