VINTAGE AEROBATIC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Watch video from
VAWC 2021 – 19-22 Aug, Odense Airport (EKOD)
VAWC 2019 in Gera was a GREAT succes! NOW we are looking forward to a joyful VAWC 2021!
Vintage Aerobatic World Championship 2021 – Odense/Denmark, August 19-22.
The VAWC concept have been refined but all vital items for the balance of the competitive and social spirit will remain. Due to. the fact that we STILL have some Corona-uncertainty some of the formal competition elements (awards, judging + merchandize etc) will be downscaled this year allowing us to balance the planning effort, the cancelation risk and the financial risk. Consequently – and to keep up the status of VAWC – we have decided to re-brand this year’s event to Vintage Aerobatic Meeting (VAM). But stay assured: We will fly a lot of competition flights in the box, have judges and have a lot of fun!!
Change of venue in Denmark
This week we were approached by the organizing team of Maribo. Unfortunately, they have lost their lead person, and consequently the sad message was that the aeroclub could not longer take responsibility for hosting VAWC/VAM. This of cause did put some pressure on our team. Gladly our effort has paid off, and we can happily announce that Odense Airport are ready to host VAM. The very positive airport manager and our local host, Jens Ploug Larsen, will surely do a GREAT job, creating fine logistics and not a least a fantastic Vintage Aerobatic atmosphere. We certainly hope that no/few of you will face troubles due to this change of venue.
We have made a handful of “check-calls” to estimate the number of participants this year. Good news is that all is very positive and announce their participation… with (of cause) a corona reservation. Consequently we (of cause) do need to have this formal reservation and have decided the final – unlikely – cancelation date as first of August (1/8). Please bear this in mind, please bear with us.
Let’s stay positive, and get tuned for a great VAM in Odense. Please stay tuned at our FaceBook and at the web site. (Please note that the registration format will not be ready in VAM format the next approx. 10 days)
Looking forward to seeing you all… and build on the fantastic success of VAWC

VAWC is getting ready for the next exiting journey!!!
After we developed the VAWC concept three four ago, 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. Therefore we have decided to open a concept rotating VAWC into different locations in Europe… but also touching base in its development journey every second year on home turf, in Denmark.
VAWC 2021 will be hosted at Odense, HC Andersen Airport/Denmark
VAWC 2022 is agreed to take place in Breighton, UK. More info to follow on this web page. Stay tuned!!
First of all… let’s all meet and have some competitive and social FUN in Odense, HC Anderson Airport.
