FAI Centenary Airshow & 22nd FAI World Grand Prix
Starting at 19h.00 on the evening of Friday 26 August, on the lake-side at Ouchy, the population of Lausanne and all aviation enthusiasts will be invited free of charge to watch some fantastic aerobatic displays. As part of the FAI World Grand Prix of Aviation competition, the display will include the Breitling Jet Team and the Patrouille Suisse, and the flight programme will end in apotheosis with a unique grand finale especially composed to honor the FAI Centenary.
The female Swiss Saxophone Quartet "Lily Horn Is Born", has composed an "Haute Voltige" Air Musical entitled "The Call of the Skies". Pilots will perform aerobatic manoeuvres to this live music, played from the terrace of the Olympic Museum.
The flying fun will continue during the weekend of Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August at the Lausanne Airport (La Blécherette), where the "Fête de l'Aviation 2005" organizing committee has prepared an outstanding flying programme in honour of the FAI Centenary. Rounds of the 22nd FAI World Grand Prix will be part of the flying programme, and will include solo pilots as well as formations.
Thanks to the cooperation of the Aero-Club of Switzerland and its national air sports federations, all air sports will be presented to the public with in-flight demonstrations and static exhibitions (Hangar 4).
