Aerochute At Avalon Airshow 2017 (2)

Aerochute International had a successful Avalon Airshow with thousands of people being exposed to our safe and exciting way of flying.  During the trade days we had our Hummerchute model and the prototype UAV model on display.  There was a lot of interest in both especially as the UAV model can have a payload up to 250kg which makes it very interesting for agriculture and mining operations.
We met with the Indian delegation through Austrade and had the opportunity to take them for a flight one morning, viewing the kangaroos from the air.  They were all very impressed and excited about the opportunities they could see back in India for the Aerochute.
The public days were non stop talking to people about using the Aerochute for travel, recreation and just always wanting to fly safely.  We have many people to follow up for a flight, training and purchase who want to get into the sport.  We are always busy with the Aerochutes and now we just got busier...'Let the Adventure Begin...!'

Aerochute At Avalon Airshow 2017

Aerochute Industries had a successful trade and public display at the 2017 Avalon International Airshow. The weather was good for the show but very hot on most days. We had an external static display where we could showcase the Hummerchute model and the UAV Aerochute we are developing and testing. There were literally 1000's of people who passed by our stand with heads turning, fingers point and partners dragging them away. The lucky thousand or so who got a brochure or spoke to us were very interested and loved the idea of it's simplicity and safety. It looks like our weekends just got busier giving many more people the thrill of flight...'Let the Adventure Begin...!'

Thanks to all who helped out on the stand, Trevor, Bruce, Paul, James, Rex and Craig we appreciate your efforts in talking to interested people about our great sport. Thank you.
