Looking forward into 2017...

Everyone looks at the New Year in a different way: I for one have always liked the promise that comes with the turn of the calendar. It’s like starting a new book: each page builds the story and where will that story take you?

As far as Genesys Aerosystems goes, 2017 will be the year that has been almost three years in the making. What do I mean by that? Well, simply this is the year when we will finally be able to unveil some really exciting new products and programs – a couple have been in the works since literally the day Genesys Aerosystems was formed in 2014.

What products and programs might they be? Sorry, but it’s too early to let those particular cats out of their respective bags. But I will say that if all goes according to plan the upcoming Heli-EXPO in Dallas, Oshkosh AirVenture and NBAA in Las Vegas will be very big events for Genesys Aerosystems in 2017.

Of course, we’ll be at many of the other aviation trade shows around the world. I love racking up those frequent flyer miles…Here’s a link to our current trade show and event list:

Make sure you come by the Genesys booth to see what’s new.

Another thing we’re looking forward to in 2017 is the FAA finalizing the recently approved Part 23 rewrite guidelines. In short, the rule primarily written to lessen the certification burden on aircraft manufacturers will help to stimulate the introduction of new aircraft designs.

Ultimately that will mean more opportunities for Genesys to develop more OEM relationships, which, by the way is related to one of our upcoming major announcements – sorry for the teaser. I just couldn’t help myself...

What else will 2017 bring to general and business aviation? Who knows? But, you can be sure that the turn of each of those pages will help build on the history of our most amazing and exciting industry and, with any luck, will make 2017 a truly great year.

Until next time, have a wonderful, safe and prosperous New Year,
