FAI World Aerobatic Championships 2019 Takes Flight In France

Eighteen Teams From Around The World Competing Over The Next 10 Days

Start your engines! The 30th edition of the thrilling FAI World Aerobatic Championships are underway following an Opening Ceremony Wednesday night in France.

Held at the Châteauroux-Centre airport in central France, this year’s competition runs from August 22 to 31 and will include 18 teams from around the world. Pilots from Australia, Switzerland, Russia, and the United States will be among those battling to steal the crown from the reigning French team.

More than 100,000 spectators are expected to visit the event site between now and 31 August to witness their incredible feats of aerobatic skill, while enjoying the varied entertainment programme put on by local organisers the Fédération Française Aéronautique (FFA) and Châteauroux Métropole.

This year, the programme will include demonstrations of other air sports, test flights, and a range of stands.

Competition flights will take place every day from August 22 to 31 (weather permitting), with visitors on the final day of the event also being treated to a spectacular air show including a wingwalking display and demonstrations by several French Army teams.
