From 14 to 16 September 2012 the Bengener Heide in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler will once again play host to the tenth JetPower Fair. Ten years ago nobody would have thought that this meeting would develop into what it now is: the largest and best-known international event in the world of model jet aviation. At this point we must express our gratitude to the management of the Modellsport Verlag publishing house, as Heinz Ongsieck and Hans Rost provided the necessary pump-priming finance back then, without which the first JetPower Fair would have been impossible to contemplate. Today the event is a very well established and permanent part of the modelling calendar, and is Modellsport Verlag’s draught horse. Evidence for the revolutionary nature of the overall concept is the current series of similar events, including Rotor live (also from Modellsport Verlag) and ProWing.
On this, our anniversary, our visitors are naturally entitled to expect something special, and that is exactly what they will get: the flying on the Friday and Saturday will again be to a fixed schedule, which – despite all the scepticism – worked superbly last year. On the Sunday we shall lay on a major flight display for our spectators, including participation from full-size aviation. Already several attractive ‘acts’ from the Airshow scene have pledged to attend, and our faithful visitors can look forward to a great day. Naturally there will again be some boisterous partying in the evening: on the Friday the great Jubilee party gets under way in the Brennkammer (‘combustion chamber’ bar) with the “Los Rockos” band, who
really got everyone bopping last year. The traditional night-flying show will again be held on the Saturday evening, and we are still looking for pilots who have special displays they can offer us. If that’s you, please contact Winnie Ohlgart (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Camping places can be reserved by e-mail (email@example.com).
All of us in the JetPower team are looking forward to meeting our many exhibitors (exhibitor overview) and visitors from Germany and abroad, and even at this early stage we wish you a great time at the Bengener Heide at Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler!
