Swedish Johan Gustafsson, the Advanced Glider Aerobatics World Champion of 2013, will amaze us for the 4th consecutive year with his magnificent performance, piloting his glider. The highlight of his participation? The impressive nighttime show, as the sun would be setting down. He will be engaging to an aerial dance with the colors of the Hellenic sky in the background, while fireworks will be launched off his glider. We will be taking care of the music which will be accompanying his choreography.

Our deepest condolences

December 3, 2018 |by Athensuser | 0 Comments | news

Theodoros Vasilakis, flew yesterday towards his great journey, saddening the entire tourism and aviation family of our country.

The Founder and Chairman of Hertz AutoHellas and Aegean Airlines, leaves behind a large gap and his enormous legacy, not only in our national tourism industry, but in other segments as well. It is widely accepted how tremendously significant his contribution has been to strengthen tourism. A truly insightful and visionary man, he was one of the first businessmen who realized the significance of tourism for the Greek economy and throughout his business life he worked tirelessly to promote it, through his field of business. With the appropriate strategy plan and decisive steps, Aegean Airlines’ contribution to the increasing international arrivals in our country has been of great importance. A strategic plan, that Theodore Vasilakis and his family envisioned and designed, and for which all of us in the business world of Greece feel grateful and proud of, at the same time. During these difficult years for our country, Theodore Vasilakis and his family have continuously inspired us by showing that we need to believe in our strengths and capabilities of our country and those of each one of us.

The members of the AFW team wish to express our deepest sorrow and our condolences to his family and the hope that the path and achievements of Theodoros Vasilakis will set the example upon which we shall continue building the future of our country.

On Sunday 10 June, at the Athens War Museum and in a magnificent and cordial atmosphere, the volunteers’ awards ceremony was held by Athens Flying Week, in recognition of the full cooperation and contribution of the latter to AFW 2017. The event kicked off with a tour into the world of the Athens War Museum, where war relics from the fight for our homeland’s freedom are preserved and exposed.

Subsequently, Brigadier General of the Hellenic Army Panagiotis Anastopoulos, Counsellor to the Administrative Council of the Athens War Museum, and Mr. Panagiotis Kossyvakis, a member of the AFW 2018 Organizing Committee, distributed awards to the Volunteer Fire Brigade of Neos Voutzas – Provalinthos, to the Elite Special Τask Force of Markopoulo and Kouvaras, and to the Radio Amateur Association of Greece

Based on the premise that volunteer work is a choice and not an obligation, particularly at a flying event, we are sure of only one thing: that together we shall once again prove that the vision of aviation is still strong and continues to guide us!

For Frank Van Houten, the sky is the limit.

Frank, by flying in the impressively painted Sukhoi 26MX, equipped with the powerful 9-cylinder radial engine and its huge propeller, has set the endurance limits at ±12 Gs.

The man-machine perfect combination, in a distinctively noisy, aerial choreographies series, that we will hardly ever forget!
