This unique event gives us the chance for crucial, face-to-face communication to occur so we can arrive at the most efficient ways to deliver the best platforms to our men and women defending our country.”

During the show, attendees will get the opportunity to learn more about our military aircraft during program briefings on the Bell AH-1Z, UH-1Y and V-22.
