AERO FRIEDRICHSHAFEN 2017
34,200 visitors of this years AERO Friedrichshafen had opportunity to see aircrafts of more than 700 exhibitors. MGM COMPRO was one of them with 364 m2 stand, 5 aircrafts and 3 complete propulsion units.
During the past few years it became a tradition that we attend AERO 2017 fair trade in Friedrichshafen. It is the event that we are looking forward to every year. This year was special for us because electric flying got biggest space for presentation in the history - one separate hall A7. Our stand in this hall took 364 m2.
364 m2 MGM COMPRO stand
Because we couldn't handle this big space by ourselves we have partnered with 5 companies. Skyleader, GP GLIDERS, SONG, Archaeopteryx and EGO TRIKE, all of them had displayed their airplanes at MGM COMPRO stand. Together we have created great experience for visitors.
Take a tour through our stand
Right at the entrance to our stand was 3 complete propulsion units. Exhibitors were able to see how it works and even control the unit with the throttle and get the propeller spinning. But the main thing at the entrance was for sure electric Skyleader 400.
The most eye catching aircraft of our stand was for sure Skyleader 400. It electric version of ultralight from Jihlavan airplanes. It is now in the phase of successful ground tests and should be undergoing air test in the beginning of May. Check out the video for more information.
