Seeing Tangerang City from the sky at Hexia 2024


Jakarta, IO – Heli Expo Asia (Hexia) 2024 is back. This annual event will be held at Cengkareng Heliport, Tangerang from June 26-30, featuring a total of 30 local and international exhibitors.

Hexia chairman Iskandar Muda said the foreign exhibitors include companies from Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai, Australia and the US. Unlike last year’s edition which was geared more toward the industrial sector, this year it will focus more on the educational side.

Iskandar said the change in concept was a response to the enthusiasm of the wider community for the helicopter industry.

“At the Heli Expo there will be a Heli Fest activity, which will provide education to the public and introduce the world of aviation to the public,” said Iskandar, per Detikcom, Fri (21/6).

There will be around eight helicopters displayed in the exhibition, with some belonging to the Indonesian Air Force (TNI AU).

“We will display around eight helicopters, five of which are civilian helicopters, and three of which are Air Force helicopters, namely Holibri which are usually used by the Air Force for helicopter attractions,” he explained.
