National Aerobatic Championships at Malmi Airport, 4–5 July 2019

Malmi Airfield Association and Aerobatic Club of Finland have agreed to organize the National Aerobatic Championships at historic Malmi Airport for the first time.

The National Championships will take place as one sport during the National Championships week. Among others, the Finnish public service broadcasting company YLE will cover the event. Both powered aircraft and gliders will compete in their own categories.

The competition flights will take place from 9am to 2pm and from 6pm to 8pm. During the event, the airfield is open for landings and take-offs, but flying in circuit will be restricted. The organizer aims to minimize the inconvenience to Malmi’s normal aviation activities, and special attention will be paid to noise mitigation. Practice flights related to the event will also be flown on 3 July 2019 from 9am to 2pm and from 6pm to 8pm.

The aerobatics will take place in a 1-cubic-kilometer box while a panel of judges evaluates the flights. The box is located north of Malmi’s runway 09/27, and the flights will take place between 1000 and 4000 feet of altitude. The viewing terrace of the terminal, restaurant Check-In and areas along the perimeter fence are the best places for watching the event.

The organizer and the airfield association will give a press conference about the event at a time to be announced separately.
