And while the fixed wing side has many intriguing shows to offer, the rotary brethren also has some intriguing options, including a second conference this year from the Helicopter Association of Canada. HAC is expanding its convention and trade show offerings with a second trade show and general meeting Nov. 2-5 at the Westin Calgary Hotel in Calgary. The four-day event brings together some of the top minds in the Canadian helicopter industry and will explore many critical issues. A full slate of committee meetings is planned as are key educational sessions including  Flying in the Wire and Obstruction Environment, Helicopter Long Line and Cargo Net Maintenance and Inspection, and Managing Employee Risk and Cost for the Helicopter Operator.

Top speakers will also be on hand to share their expertise, including Transport Canada Director General of Civil Operation Martin Eley, Eric Smith, a senior investment specialist with the Industrial Technologies Office of Canada, Hugh Roberts, publisher of CP Manuals, and Wendy Tadros, a Transportation Lawyer with the Transportation Board of Canada.
