Previous Flight Reports

Welcome to my monthly report to HAI members. Viola’s Flight Report—or VFR—will update you on some of the work the HAI staff is doing on your behalf.

It’s essential that we share with you the work we’re doing. Whether we’re addressing new or existing regulatory matters, advocating on your behalf for a strong and vibrant international industry, or preparing for next year’s HAI HELI-EXPO, please know that the goal of the HAI staff is to always support you and help keep your rotors turning.

In this edition of VFR, I focus on the state of the industry and what HAI is doing to better assist you.

In 2022, the HAI Board of Directors developed five strategic initiatives to support the growth of vertical aviation. Since then, the HAI staff have used this strategic framework to guide our efforts to provide you with connection, advocacy, safety, education, and support for businesses and individuals.

Meanwhile, OEMs in the past year have increased both their sales and their production of innovative technology. You’ll see many of the latest aircraft and other products at HAI HELI-EXPO 2024 next week, along with new HAI member benefits and programs.

Watch this month’s video to learn more. I hope to see you in Anaheim!
