Centenary of Torino-Aeritalia Airport

altOn the 2nd and 3rd of July 2016 the Aero Club Torino celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Torino-Aeritalia Airport.

The event took place over two days - on Saturday there was a groundbreaking ceremony with the opening of the "Village", the staging of which saw not only the participaation of the Air Force and the Carabinieri but also that of the major local aeronautical industries (Leonardo, Thales Alenia Space, Microtechnology, Avio- aero etc.) the Polytechnic University, the Grassi Technical Institute and other institutional bodies.

A static display of about 40 historic aircraft from all over Italy was organized (among them being a C-27 military transport aircraft produced by Leonardo) as well as some 40 vintage cars from the "FIAT Historic Vehicles Group".

In the "village", numerous booths offered displays of services and products. These included an F-16 flight simulator and a Thales-Alenia IXV spacecraft (shuttle). One of the early Agusta-Bell 47 helicopters, used by the first Helicopter Nucleus of the Carabinieri at Aeritalia, and undergoing restoration before going to the Carbinieri museum near Alba, attracted considerable interest.

Test flights and exercises were performed by the display teams and soloists on Saturday afternoon, while a large attraction for the children was a tethered balloon offering free rides.

On the Sunday, from 3pm onwards, with free admission, a large Air Show took place, in which 6 aerobatic teams and numerous soloists peformed for the delight of the crowd. These included two world champions as well as displays by the Civil Defence, Forestry Police, Army and the Carabinieri.
