Horst Steinberg, member of bavAIRia Executive Board, explained: “We have accompanied AIRTEC for years and know that this is a tailor-made supply fair. It has the potential to become a central place for the aerospace supply industry in Europe. The congress will focus on the civil application of unmanned aerial vehicles as future technology.”
