Remaining time to the Airshow 2017

Helicopter aerobatics

Every good air show traditionally involves top-notch aerobatics. This will also be the case of the 26th Aviation Fair at the Pardubice Airport at the weekend of 28th–29th 2016.

"Aerobatics is rightfully considered a queen among air sports and only few pilots are able to perform the complex aerobatic manoeuvres. All past Aviation Fairs featured an aerobatic performance involving true masters of the air. We had the chance to watch aerobatic shows with engine driven aircraft, gliders, jet aircraft, aerobatic group and two years ago, we witnessed for the first time a breathtaking aerobatic show of a helicopter. We are very happy that we will be able to watch this very interesting show at this year's Aviation Fair as well," said Jaroslav Janda, the Aviation Fair organizer, on one of the spectacular shows.

"Red Bull has already confirmed that one of the aircraft starring at this year's Aviation Fair will be the aerobatic helicopter Bölkow Bö105CB. The aerobatic manoeuvres performed by this helicopter are possible because of a unique construction of the rotor head. Its Austrian pilot Siegfried Schwarz will perform turnovers which cannot be made on any other helicopter type; moreover, there are very few pilots in the world who are able and allowed to make them. There are only three aerobatic civil helicopters in the world, and all of them in Red Bull colours," said Jan Rudzinskyj, one of the Aviation Fair organizers. The Aviation Fair will offer even more aerobatic performances as part of the almost six-hour-long aviation show, and also a varied programme on the ground with several demonstrations and different activities for kids.
