The British Air Display Association holds a POST SEASON SYMPOSIUM on 3 & 4 November 2016 . BADA continues its great airshow work after the challenges of 2015 and set a good example in doing so, keeping us and ICAS informed by John Turner.
NEXT EAC CONVENTION 02 – 04 March 2017, MALTA
Our organisation will organise its next edition of the EAC Convention again in Malta. Bazsed on the received remarks from most of you we shall keep the convention in Malta in the same hotel as last year and improving certain important details.
So, as we see that the flights are still cheap for that period and that f.i. Ryanair is adding several flights to Malta we invite you to book your flights as early as now.
YOUR DATES FOR 2017 and 2018 PLEASE
Airshows are no longer a national only scheduling challenge. Although all our efforts we see that a clash of dates still remains a problem on certain dates. So may we invite all of you to enter the dates for 2017 and even 2018 in a way we can deconflict or else start cooperation between shows in order to change a problem in a win-win situation.
ICAS LAS VEGAS
Our American colleagues will organise their next convention in Paris Hotel Las Vegas on 5/6/7/8 December of this year.
