ABOUT THE AIRMEET
The Airmeet is the RC model show of the year and has become something like the Mecca of the RC scene. The centrepiece of the Airmeet is the impressive non-stop airshow. For the ninth time everything will be revolving around jets, biplanes, helicopters and copters. Ranging from high-end-scratch-built models right down to beginner planes for everyone – everything will be flown by the best of the best at the Airmeet. Again we have been able to put together an impressive list of pro pilots. There will be first class show acts with full scale planes ranging from the silent elegance of the Blanix Team right up to the roaring power of the 1.500bhp warbird monster, the T-28 Trojan. You will see breath-taking manoeuvres flown spectacularly and precise and accompanied by sweeping music. Additional specials this year include a huge 1.600m² RC racetrack hosting the Race-Cup, an FPV arena where you can try FPV and a RC tombola where every ticket wins!

SPECIAL GUEST JUAN PABLO MONTOYA
A real live Formula 1 and Indy 500 star? That’s something you will only find at the Airmeet. The Columbian racing driver Juan Pablo Montoya doesn’t only love to race on the track, he’s also a fan of tearing through the sky with RC jets so it’s obvious, that the adrenaline loaded Airmeet is an event he can’t miss. We are very pleased, that this talented RC pilot will be making a pit stop in Donauwörth. But he will not only be attending as a pilot, he is especially looking forward to a meet and greet with you!

The price per camping spot including power, drinking water and waste disposal is EUR 25.-.
