Re: 2018 - North Sea Air Festival 21 July [cancelled]

Re: VintageAirRally Beach STOL Competition at Knokke-Heist

So, NOTAM and AIP info should be published any moment, plus frequency, and Red Bull are sending a plane up from Austria to compete...

Still have spare slots for planes, and the VIP access passes go on sale this weekend!

Re: VintageAirRally Beach STOL Competition at Knokke-Heist

Sorry, only just seen this. With regards to cost/value for money, please note that we're not doing a 'simple' STOL competition (if there is such a thing). We're using lasers for the measuring, livefeed updates of results, livestream VR from the tower (that we're building specially for the event) - e...

VintageAirRally Beach STOL Competition at Knokke-Heist

We are organising this in Knokke-Heist, in June.

There is an Aviation Art Fair as part of the Expo, in the Magritte room of the Knokke Casino.

Could you let me know if this might be of interest to your members?

Re: Which Belgian Aviation person (living) would you most want to meet...

It is very fair to be critical of much we see in the press if we actually have a deep knowledge/interest in the subject. Though, as it happens, we already have agreement that it will be an international airport. Fortunately there will not be, as you say, conveyor belts or check-desks. We are, though...

It is also perfectly conceivable that: 1. It was missed, it happens. 2. They wanted to keep the exclusions to a minimum to have the greatest number of offers.

I'm planning on inviting both these people, but if you choose to come to our event (Knokke in June) you'd have to promise to be nice!
