Latest Avionics Innovations on Display at Next Week's AEA Show
EAA linking to coverage of the event April 3-6
March 29, 2012 - EAA members will be able to see the latest innovations and inventions in aircraft avionics and electronics as they are unveiled next week during the annual Aircraft Electronics Association convention, which takes place April 3-6 in Washington, D.C.
This event, which is an industry trade show not open to the public, features advancements in all areas of aviation, from commercial flight operations to the newest products for GA. Many of these innovations will be making their public debut later this year at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
"The AEA is thrilled to be in the nation's capital for our 55th International Convention & Trade Show," said Paula Derks, AEA president. "Our attendees will have the opportunity to network with their industry peers and keep up-to-date with industry trends by seeing new products with the major suppliers under one roof. In this new world of social media, text messaging, e-mailing, and webinars, one thing remains constant: Our attendees still want to see, touch, and talk product face-to-face."
EAA will offer its members and other aviators a glimpse inside the event in cooperation with AEA and its media partner, Aero-News Network. They will feature live streaming coverage throughout the convention, including new product introductions and interviews with key figures.
Beginning April 4, EAA members and others can access coverage through the AEA/ANN portal available on the EAA website. ANN's Aero-TV will cover AEA's industry-leading "New Product Introduction" showcase, in which everything of interest to the avionics world gets its first comprehensive public viewing. The two-hour live programming session will detail dozens of new product and technology introductions, showcasing the very latest in innovative aviation electronics.
The 55th annual AEA International Convention & Trade Show is the largest gathering of avionics manufacturers, distributors, and government-certified repair stations in the world. It is a unique opportunity for manufacturers, distributors, technicians, and business leaders to network and shape the future of avionics together. The AEA Convention is the only wholesale avionics show representing nearly 90 percent of the international government-certified avionics shops.
