Schempp-Hirth will not be represented at this year's Aero in Friedrichshafen, contrary to what was originally planned. We have made this difficult decision based on various reasons.
Last week we were informed by the Aero trade fair management that our stand is to be moved at short notice from the traditional Hall A1 to the smaller Hall B4. There are good reasons for this measure by the fair management, for which we have understanding. Nevertheless, we have reconsidered our intention to participate on this occasion and in view of the current international political developments. The late date in the middle of the spring flying season was a big handicap for us from the beginning. After evaluating the previous and additional facts, we have now come to the decision not to exhibit at Aero this year.
We know how important it is, especially for junior glider pilots and clubs, to be able to experience our products first hand and meet our team and we will be looking for opportunities to make this possible outside of the show this year. Updates on this will be available via our website and social media.
We wish all our friends and customers a great start to the 2022 season.
