Qatar: Aviation show to be held in January

The Fifth Fly-in Open Day will be held at Al Khor Airstrip on January 13 and 14 from 9am to 4.30pm in a revamped format featuring light aircraft from all over the region.

The event is jointly organised by the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority, the Qatar Aeronautical College, owners of light aircraft from the region and the remote flying section at the Science Club.

The display of aircraft and aerobatic shows are expected to draw big crowds. The objective of the event is to educate the youth about the science and concept of aviation.

Qatar Aeronautical College officials will be present to provide information on scholarships and a career in aviation.

A diverse range of aircraft including jets, propeller aircraft, micro-copters and many others are expected for the event.

Sheikh Ahmed H al-Thani, chairman of the Al Khor Fly-in Committee, said the anticipated line-up and activities are going to be a huge draw for families.

Visitors will enjoy a free ride whenever possible and a close-up look at the cockpit.
