OVERVIEW

8th Asian/Australian Rotorcraft Forum (ARF 2019) It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the 8th Asian/Australian Rotorcraft Forum (ARF 2019) to be held in Ankara, Turkey on October30 - November 2, 2019. This conference will be organized by the ARF 2019 Organizing Committee with support of the local AHS chapters of the participating countries and sponsored by the Turkish Aerospace Industries.

The Asian/Australian Rotorcraft Forum enhances interaction among industry, academia, government, rotorcraft operators. Recent developments in new rotorcraft technologies including high-speed rotorcraft and un-manned systems, point towards an exciting era. New comers to the rotorcraft Industry from Asia/Australia show great potential for the future.



As Turkish members of the Asian/Australian rotorcraft society, we prepare for the 8th ARF to be hosted in Turkey. In addition to traditional rotorcraft technologies, the Forum will host special sessions for unmanned drones and high-speed rotorcraft technologies. We are kindly inviting specialists from all around the world to present their work and we hope to discuss new problems, state-of-art technologies and enhance co-operation. Technical sessions, workshops, invited speakers, poster presentations and banquet will be included as part of the program.

ARF 2019 will be held in the capital city of the Republic of Turkey, Ankara. Ankara is a modern Eurasian metropolis with reminders of its ancient history and is located at the heart of Turkey and Central Anatolia. Ankara is home for many aerospace companies, manufacturing facilities, government and state buildings, major universities, museums and historical places. Ankara is close to many touristic attractions, including Cappadocia, Catalhoyuk etc. and is only a few hours’ drive away from major touristic cities, such as Istanbul, Izmir and Antalya. We are looking forward to welcoming all the rotorcraft specialists from all around the World.
