It’s been a busy quarter for the Mint Turbines team with our participation in shows across the world, including Farnborough International Airshow, EAA AirVenture OshKosh, ASE, FIAC and more. Whether you attended or missed this year, give our recap of each event below a read to hear how high-profile events like these provide ample opportunities for small businesses like Mint Turbines.
Farnborough International Airshow | July 2022 | Farnborough, England
Mint Turbines Chief Strategy Officer Chris Van Denhende and International Sales Manager Holger Beh at the Farnborough 2022 airshow.
Every two years, our industry gathers for one of the world’s biggest aerospace events – the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA).
This was the first year Mint Turbines participated in the Farnborough International Airshow. While we have customers in the European market with our T53 Engines, we wanted to participate in this event in 2022 as some of our new product offerings will interest this market. Events like this will help further expand our foothold in Europe. We made several connections at the event, especially with a few prior customers.
Mint Turbines joined Oklahoma ACES and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt as the largest-ever Oklahoma delegation. Together, the Oklahoman team met with more than 70 executives about aerospace in Oklahoma. Our company is a great example of a small business doing well in Oklahoma’s industry. We provided firsthand information about the workforce and what it’s like doing business in the state. Read the official FIA recap here.
An unexpected element of the 2022 FIA was the record-breaking temperatures in the UK! One day during the conference, it was a scorching 104.4 Fahrenheit, which made it interesting to talk business in our suits all day with no AC.
EAA AirVenture OshKosh | July 2022 | Oshkosh, Wisconsin
Mint Turbines joined the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission and community partners at the annual EAA AirVenture OshKosh. We sponsored the Oklahoma Fly-In Luncheon for the second year with U.S. Senator (OK) Jim Inhofe and EAA CEO Jack Pelton. There are a lot of owner-operators that attend this event, providing ample opportunity to network with decision makers. This year’s event welcomed beautiful weather with a record-breaking 650,000 people in attendance and more than 10,000 aircraft. Review EAA’s recap of OshKosh here.
Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium (ASE) | September 2022 | Lexington, Kentucky
For nearly 40 years, the Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium (ASE) has brought the industry together to create life-saving solutions for soldiers, repairers and officers. Mint Turbines attended the event to network and listen to informative panels. Check out the ASE recap here.
