Greetings from the "headquarters"!

Of course we all properly have more important things to handle, but still many of us have been thinking about IF WAWC 2020 will be ... or will it be cancelled.

Here in Denmark the society is slowly opening up, and the situation is improving week by week. And since we still have many weeks to go before we reach end of August I/we will – for the time being – keep up hoping. On top of the small weekly “re-opening adjustments”, the Danish government will Mid-May issue the next major milestone. WHEN we have this – and after we have scanned the situation in the northern part of Europe – we will take the final go/no go decision for VAWC 2020.

Until then you can enjoy to “dry-fly” or test fly the new known sequences. They are now published in the VAWC FB Group and will be in the Vintage website.

Let’s keep up the good spirit… and keep on hoping.
Stay healthy! And hoping – still – very much to see you all in Maribo.

(PS: If you already now for sure know that you will NOT participate, please let me know as soon as possible. Also: Please remember that in the “before-corona-situation” we were looking into a possible activation of the participant-limit of 35 pilots, since we already have many registrations. So please do not hesitate to register…. 📷)(… of course you can wait to after my next go/no go announcement)

That is some serious vintage aviation

🤩 Exactly 110 years ago, just after sunrise on 25 July 1909, the aviator Louis Blériot 🇫🇷 took off on what was to become the first ever flight in an airplane across the Channel.

Our beloved vintage airplanes are capable of performing the most beautiful manoeuvres in the sky. Add the sound of a Gipsy Major, Renault or Tigre … or a radial engine. We can do air-ballet, soaring towards our piloting dreams and romantic flying desires. Every one of us loves to fly! Let’s do it together! Let’s connect and have some fun. Teach some old dogs new tricks, and give some young pup’s useful tips. Build some fun-flying relations. If you own a vintage airplane capable of aerobatics, please read on. If you don’t, read on anyway, we might need you on the judging line and/or in the bar! Many type of aircraft is welcome – Tiger Moth, Chipmunk, Bücker Jungman, SAAB Safir, KZ-2, KZ-8, Klem 35, Stearman, Zlin, you name it.

Categories:

Vintage category: Airplanes with type certificate (or alike) before 1955 and a least 65 years old.
Classic category: Airplanes with type certificate (or alike) before 1975 and after 1955, and a least 45 years old.
Replica category: Replicas of Vintage or Classic airplanes. Re-engined/modified vintage- and classic airplane.

And remember! If you do not have your own plane, you can hire a beautiful Zlin 526. Or if you do not fly at all, you are also most welcome offering your assistance….

Keeping 'em up in the air since 1909!

It's National Aviation Maintenance Technician's day!

Charles Edward Taylor (May 24, 1868 – January 30, 1956) was an American inventor, mechanic and machinist. He built the first aircraft engine used by the Wright brothers in the Wright Flyer, and was a vital contributor of mechanical skills in the building and maintaining of early Wright engines and airplanes

It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of Jiri Kobrle on Fri 17th of May. Jiri was a great aviator, and a true gentleman-sportsman on a very high level. And possibly the kindest man on earth. Big words, yes. But true. Jiri always wanted to help out friends and colleagues sharing his outstanding experience. He also helped and coached DKFU (Danish Aerobatic Association) through many years. Jiri was a brilliant pilot, a world class aerobatic judge and had also resources within the organizational side of aerobatic / CIVA. Lately Jiri was engaged in VAWC as chief judge in VAWC2018 I Skive/Denmark. Here Jiri launched a special “sportsmanship” trophy, and this could not be more “Jiri”. Big thanks for this and for being you.

Our sincere condolences to Iva, the family and all the many aerobatic friends around the world. May he rest in peace. And may we all respect his way of friendly but ambitious competition.

Man do we have good news for you from Germany!!

Dear enthusiasts of vintage aerobatic flights,

We have great NEWS for you. We are very proud to announce VAWC will have a fantastic and clean vintage aerobatic plane for you to RENT! It is a wonderful ZLIN 526 which is actually based in Gera. This will give pilots the opportunity to join the competition and to become a real world-champion. Come to Gera and be participant of this strong and unique vintage event of European aviation. No matter why you can’t come with a own plane, you can easily charter the ZLIN 526 and the ship will come with certified FI (former german Aerobatic-Champion, Advanced category, Heintje Wyczisk), giving all the assistance you will need (except during competition flights).
Furthermore this plane will not only fly during competition. If you just would like to have a ride you might have dreamed of, or you would like to feel like a vintage pilot, or just like an aerobatic Pilot, just come over. Everything is possible.
Interest? Just give a hint via email for planning…
(Rental fee is 6 Euro per minute in flight, Safety/FI and fuel included, landing fee separate.)

A perfect evening for performances!
I will be attending the VAWC in August and would like to compete. Might it be possible to hire a suitable aircraft such as a Tiger Moth, Stampe or Chipmunk. If necessary I could fly with a 'safety pilot' as I did last year. Please respond by Messenger.
