AERO Friedrichshafen Opens New Fly-In Event

New Event Hits the Late Summer Schedule for German Aero Nerds

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, AERO Friedrichshafen is premiering a new addition to the sport and general aviation fare at Aalen-Elchingen Airfield, the AERO Fly-In.

The new Fly-In will be done in partnership with current AERO partners Luftraum Süd and Luftsportring Aalen, the traditional airfield festival in the Ostalbkreis district (Baden-Württemberg). The theme will be centered around "Future Meets History", bringing together the best of yesterday and the most exciting of tomorrow, radial engines to battery powered whirlygigs. The new event will run from August 31 to September 1, 2024, granting a new locale for European flight enthusiasts to congregate and share in the fun of flight. AERO promises that the new Fly-In will "bring together the general aviation community and all flight enthusiasts in an outdoor environment with simple fly-in rules and attractive forms of participation."

"With our e-flight expo, AERO has been the leading international point of contact for innovative technologies and trends from the general aviation industry for years. Sustainable concepts and the role of electric aircraft are increasingly coming into focus. We are always interested in giving new impetus, expanding our portfolio and are pleased to offer the community – for the first time this summer and true to the motto "Future Meets History" – a platform where fans of both conventionally powered aircraft and future-oriented electric aircraft could exchange ideas," said AERO project manager Tobias Bretzel. 

The fact that the AERO Fly-In will be organized on the basis of the popular airfield festival, which has attracted more than 10,000 visitors so far, is an excellent starting position. Organizing the event at Elchingen Airfield also enables easy fly-in rules with many arrivals and departures, lots of outdoor exhibition areas with simple setup conditions, while on-site camping provides the necessary festival spirit. With Luftraum Süd and Luftsportring Aalen, we have renowned partners with many years of event experience on board. Also, the transport links and infrastructure are very good."

Luftraum Süd will open its doors, too. "We have known the AERO Friedrichshafen team for a long time. Now we are pleased to showcase this partnership for the first time in Elchingen and to gain more recognition with our modern event location including a permanent exhibition of vintage aircraft classics," added Karl F. Grimminger, owner of Luftraum Süd.

Dr. Helmut Albrecht, CEO of Luftsportring Aalen, said the Fly-In will be a great addition to Germany's industry. "We have been holding the airfield festival for several decades now and are proud of the expansion of the offer. The airfield will become a place of exchange beyond the regional limits, where not only those interested can learn more about aviation, but where private pilots of all aircraft types can also see for themselves one of the most beautiful airfields in Germany."
