VAWC 2024

Vintage Aerobatic World Championship 2024

After the GREAT SUCCES in St. Michalisdonn Airfield at VAWC 2023 we are now back in Denmark at HC Andersen Airport! We tested the facilities and the spirit back in 2021, and we look forward to return. Apart from the “aviation” logistics, HC Andersen Airport is situated in the  beautiful countryside, and very close to all the cultural activities in Odense. Intersting for spouses and all of us if the weather goes down

Looking forward to seeing you all at VAWC 2024 in Odense/Denmark 22-25 of August 2024. 



Looking forward to seeing you all in 2024

I do hope that you all have entered 2024 with a BIG smile and happy thoughts and vision about your vintage aerobatic flying in 2024…. not a least with intentions, or concrete plans for participating in VAWC 2024, assisting and/or socializing with us all in this great community.

The venue of VAWC 2024 will be H.C.Andersen Airport (EKOD) just in the middel of the kingdom of Denmark. 

The role of Contest Director (and Lead Organizer) will be “myself”… as well as I hope to Dance the Cloverleaf in the beautiful Chipmunk 🙂

We are all exited, and personally I will start up the process of updating the web-page with all relevant elements: Known Programs, contact details on the VAWC Team, hotel information etc. etc. One core role is already decided: Chief Judge will be the very expereinced international judge (and President of CIVA) Nick Buckenham from UK. Nick took also the role of chief judge at VAWC 2022 in Breighton/UK. 

Stay tuned for further information…

The brilliant location of EKOD, the fine participation at VAWC 2023 …. and promising interest on the grape wine from Nordic Pilots will most likely result in many participating pilots in as well Vintage, Classic or Replica category. Soon the registration format on the website should be ready for you to enlist. Please do not hesitate to long to register, since we have a limit of 35 pilots, in order not to end up with at too time-consuming competition. 

Looking very much forward to seeing you all pilots, spouces, helpers, friends.

Looking forward to seeing  you all at H C Andersen Airport

VAWC is getting ready
for the next exiting journey

After we developed the VAWC concept in 2016, we have really enjoyed the friendly success, and it seems that the concept really have hit a need in the aviation world. Hardy Vad (Denmark) put in in this way:

VAWC gives these fabulous old-timers a new sense of purpose, and do re-ignite their proud owners and pilots. VAWC unites the competitive and social SPIRIT and gives you personally a sense of going somewhere, rather than retreating

On top of participants from many European countries we have enjoyed participants and presence from New Zeeland, USA and South Africa and Australia, but growing VAWC into an ambition of a true World Championship we would like to give VAWC stronger reach, stronger wings so to speak.
