The first ERF was held in Southampton, England, in 1975, in 2014 we celebrated the ERF’s 40th anniversary again in Southampton and the most recent was held in Winterhur (Switzerland) in 2022.

The 49th European Rotorcraft Forum has taken place in Bückeburg, Germany, from 5th to 7th September 2023. Bückeburg is a town in lower saxony, located near the state capital of Hanover and surrounded by large natural areas such as the Schaumburg forest and the Weser mountains. Bückeburg is a traditional location in the history of German helicopters and is now home to the International Helicopter Training Center of the German Army Forces. In addition, Europe‘s largest helicopter museum, the Bückeburg Helicopter Museum, offers one of the world‘s largest and most impressive collection of helicopters.

Due to this Bückeburg was the perfect location for the 49th ERF. Kind regards
