Gathering support for Czechoslovak aircraft
For the year 2015 our company Aircraft Industries, a.s. decided to support the 2nd Gathering of Czechoslovak aircraft, which took place on June 20, 2015 in Vysoké Mýto. The action takes place every year at another airport, but always with the same determination and friendly atmosphere. This event is intended for aircraft which were manufactured in Czechoslovakia since 1950 and have a long tradition and quality that confirm still active air traffic. Among them belongs our L 410 as well. This event is no open to the public, only for registered participants with the necessary skills. Gathering of Czechoslovak aircraft is based on respect and trust to those wonderful flying machines.
Gathering support for Czechoslovak aircraft
In many aero clubs and private hangers you can find aircraft from the golden age of Czechoslovak aviation. Names such as Aero, Avia, Let or Zlin became famous worldwide and are still known by pilots today. We won’t forget about this important part of our history, and would like to pay tribute to manufacturers and designers of these great aircraft. All of these aircraft have one thing in common – a long history and quality which keeps the aircraft in active service today.
The people who dedicated their lives to these beautiful and exceptional aircraft will celebrate at the Gathering of Czechoslovak aircraft, held this year in Tabor from 27th – 29th June 2014.
