“Pipistrel’s to Parkes” – AirVenture in Australia
Following on from our recent success at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, our attention now turns to AirVenture Australia, this year, being held in the central New South Wales town of Parkes at the Parkes Regional Airport (YPKS) from September 20-22, 2019.
This event is unique in Australian Aviation and emulates the success of EAA AirVenture by including a Fly-In, Airshow, Aviation Trade Show, Education Seminars, Youth Careers and STEM
More details AirVenture Australia can be found at the following website
AirVenture Australia at Parkes is centrally located to most aircraft on Australia’s east coast. This is a perfect opportunity for Pipistrel owners to fly-in, meet up, and share in our own little event; “Pipistrel’s to Parkes”
Pipistrel’s to Parkes is a perfect opportunity for Pipistrel aircraft owners to get together and talk about everything Pipistrel, maintenance, achievements, modifications, tell tall stories and share their Pipistrel experience.
Of course, we will have a trade display showing the very latest Pipistrel aircraft to hit Australia, the Pipistrel Virus SW 121 model and the ALPHA Trainer.
The Pipistrel Virus SW 121 model is fully certified, approved for spin training, night flight and IFR flight training. This will be the first public viewing of the Virus SW 121 model in Australia and I welcome existing owners and our Pipistrel friends to visit and experience first-hand why the 121 is so special.
Part of our Pipistrel to Parkes event is a get together on Saturday night at one of the Parkes Services Club and we welcome all Pipistrel Australia customers and guests.
AirVenture Australia is being held at the Parkes Regional Airport (YPKS) from September 20-22, 2019.
From one of our US customers…. and just 15 km north of the airport is the Parkes Radio Telescope, which received and relayed the pictures of Neil Armstrong walking on the Moon 50 years ago last month.
