International Aerobatics Day Coming June 25
March 10, 2022 –The day celebrating the skill, beauty, and excitement of aerobatics will expand this year, as the International Aerobatic Club (IAC) goes global with International Aerobatics Day on Saturday, June 25.
The 2022 commemoration builds on last year’s successful National Aerobatics Day, where IAC members and chapters throughout the country highlighted the year-round activities of aerobatic pilots, in particular the competitions where these pilots extend their aviation capabilities.
“We are eager to show everyone how aerobatic flight encompasses so many positive elements, from skill and precision to personal growth and flying abilities,” said Jim Bourke, IAC president as well as a competition and air show pilot. “Our IAC members will host a multitude of events to share their passion for the sport of aerobatics, no matter where they live. The international element this year is especially appropriate as the best aerobatic pilots from around the globe will be flying for world championships this summer.”
In 2021, IAC chapters throughout the nation held open houses, community days, practice days, presentations, static displays and barbeques, and even aerobatic competitions. All of the events welcomed not only fellow aviators, but attendees from the local communities who discovered more about aerobatic flying and their local airport activity.
“Aerobatic flight is not only exciting to watch, it is a way that pilots hone their flying abilities to the highest possible level,” said EAA CEO and Chairman of the Board Jack J. Pelton. “It involves skills that benefit all pilots while also providing a dazzling display for everyone who enjoys the world of flight.”
