VINTAGE AEROBATIC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2017

2016 Reporting

The Championship was exactly the great experience everyone hoped for and demonstrated what the vintage aircraft community is all about. The ambition of creating the right balance of social energy and atmosphere and competitive excitement and spirit was realized up to our high expectations.

Despite marginal weather, the participants braved it and came from all over Europe in their magnificent flying machines to show the judges, spectators and fellow pilots their skills in a good-natured competitive spirit.

Everyone made new friends, admired beautiful and timeless machinery and shared tall tales between the competitive flights.
