ATHENS FLYING WEEK

Athens Flying Week will take place in the last week of September 2012 – from Monday the 24th until Sunday the 30th – and all activities will lead to the peak of the event, which is the Air Show that will be at Tatoi Airfield, located in the Municipality of Acharnes, on the 29th and 30th of September 2012.
Athens Flying Week is designed to become the major flying event for the city of Athens.
By special permission from the Ministry of Defense and the Air Force, for two days Tatoi military airport, located in the Municipality of Acharnes will open its gates to the public, who will be able to experience a magnificent air show and a series of individual events.
Athens Flying Week will be implemented through promotional events (weekdays) and during the weekend the Tatoi airfield will host the Air Show plus a series of ground events, activities & happenings.
The planned events will take place on two central points of Athens and the Tatoi military airport. Further, except from the air display, the following will occur: fly in, congress of general aviation, trade show, kids park, fly simulators, aeromodelling events, addicting flights and hospitality area, dj line ups & happenings.
Every step of the project is planned in order to provide a unique experience to those who want to live the thrill and excitement of flights. Our aim is to bring those feelings to children, youngsters and families as well as to flying enthusiasts and amateur pilots, in a first seen manner for national standards.
Athens Flying Week is not intended just for visitors from Athens. Our target is a broader national and international audience. Future additions and adjustments will establish Athens Flying Week as an international flying event that will excel to a point of interest for the national and international tourist market.
