AVIATION enthusiasts should head to Piešťany on June 14 or 15 for the second National Aviation Days. This year, the event is subtitled National Pride Days, as it will mark the country’s 15 years of independence and 90 years of military aviation, the SITA newswire wrote.

Everything at the event promises to be more exciting than last year, from the air shows to the parades and accompanying performances. Fighter planes will demonstrate an air strike and launch parachute jumps, and policemen with dogs will be in action. Those courageous enough can take a flight to have a look at the event from above. A presentation of Gripen fighters from the Czech Air Force and an aerial acrobatics show by the Polish team Bialo-Czerwone Iskry will be the main attraction. There will also be military and historical aircraft for viewing up-close.

The National Aviation Days takes place at Piešťany Airport. Those without cars can use a shuttle bus departing from the Piešťany railway station to get to the airport. The gates open at 8:00 and the first aircraft take off at 10:30. For more information, go to www.nld.sk.
