Date: Friday 7 April 2017; starting 5.30pm Venue: Classic Flyers, 9 Jean Batten Drive, Mt Maunganui Speaker: as below Subject: What's in an Airshow?
Lots of people go to airshows and everyone has a view of what they liked and disliked but most have no idea what is required to obtain the necessary approvals to stage the event or the detail planning required to make it work - irrespective how big or small the airshow may be.
An expert panel of some of those directly involved in the planning and execution of the TCAS 2017 - Strike masters at Sundown airshow will provide a perspective of what they had to do to run an airshow, including:
Andrew Gormlie - Airshow Director
Pete Jenkins - Airshow co-ordinator, and
Des Underwood – Airshow Approvals
James Pengelly - Senior ATC controller
Jim Rankin – Display Controller
Light supper to follow – a gold coin donation would be appreciated
