AHS International is grateful to the Safran for sponsoring the tour buses and support.
Fort Worth, Texas, is home to numerous manufacturers of vertical flight aircraft, subsystems and components. Airbus Helicopters performs assembly and support of its US-based civil helicopter fleet, and Safran Helicopter Engines (previously known as Turbomeca USA) builds and services it engines in nearby Grand Prairie, Texas.
Tours of Airbus Helicopters, Inc. and Safran Helicopter Engines in Grand Prairie, Texas are planned for Friday, May 12. The tours are available exclusively for registrants of Forum 73. Details and sign-up information will be be posted and disseminated as soon as it is available.
Tentative plans are to bus Forum attendees from the Sheraton Fort Worth on Friday morning to Grand Prairie (about 30 minutes away), followed by tours of Safran and Airbus Helicopters. The bus will return mid-day.
Stay tuned for details!
