AEA Connect Conferences

The annual AEA Connect conferences are two-day events that personally connect general aviation industry professionals. Formerly known as the AEA Regional Meetings, the AEA Connect conferences have grown beyond simply receiving regulatory updates and technical training via a classroom-style lecture -- attendees are now more engaged than ever in the educational environment with interactive discussions and analysis. Avionics repair stations, manufacturers, regulators and educators show an increasing desire to come together, network and personally conduct serious business -- they want to connect in person. With an exhibit hall filled with the latest avionics technologies and services, attendees feel a greater personal connection with the opportunity to see, touch and feel new products and visit face-to-face with the experts.
