The aim of the Rotorcraft Forum is to create an opportunity for the presentation of research results and exchange of information about rotorcraft activity, achievements and issues, both in Poland and abroad. According to the proven practice of the previous conferences, we expect papers referring to all rotorcraft related subjects, such as: manufacturing, exploitation, supervision, research and training, all of which may be the themes for conference presentations. We assume the possibility of presentation of survey  papers and rotorcraft related product demonstration. Presenters from abroad are welcomed.

We invite to participate actively in our conference and we kindly ask for spreading this information to other, potentially interested people.
