The European Rotorcraft Forum (ERF) is one of the premier events in the rotorcraft community’s calendar, bringing together manufacturers, research centres, academia,operators and regulatory agencies to discuss advances in research, development, design, manufacturing, testing and operation of rotorcraft.

This Forum will be the 41st in a series of meetings, which take place annually across Europe, rotating around the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Russia. The first ERF was held in Southampton, England, in 1975, and the most recent again in Southampton in 2014.

The 41st European Rotorcraft Forum will be organised by the DGLR in Munich, Germany.
