Salone del Volo - Air Show 2012: formerly at Venice Lido and now in Padua, a new location and many new features for the fascinating event dedicated to aeronautics!

From 28 September 2012 to 30 September 2012


After the great success of the last editions of the Air Show in Venice - which has confirmed this as one of the most popular exhibitions amongst aviation enthusiasts and professionals - this year's Salone del Volo will take place at the Padua Exhibition Centre on 28 to 30 September 2012 with many new features. First of all the location: from Venice Lido, the Salone del Volo 2012 moves to the Civil Airport of Padua "Gino Allegri," thanks to an agreement between Expo Venice, the trade mark owner of this successful aeronautical exhibition, Padovafiere and Padua Airport. Thanks to its proximity to the motorway gate of Padua West and the historic city centre, the new location of the Air Show will be easily accessible both by car and public transport.

Last year in its 4th edition, the Venice Air Show has achieved very important numbers: 400 pilots, 60 exhibitors and more than 30 aircrafts on display, not to mention the many positive comments from the public and authorities that have established this as one of the best aviation events in Italy. The Salone del Volo has become a brand known and appreciated both in Italy and abroad, by many pilots, enthusiasts and aircraft owners . An exhibition dedicated to the world of light aviation and recreational aviation, the Salone del Volo - Air Show will let you discover the latest news on sports and recreational aircrafts, as well as accessories, technologies, components and clothes, all strictly dedicated to the world of aeronautics. The Padua Exhibition Centre will also provide opportunities for sports associations (parachuting, paragliding) and flight schools, such as the flight school of Padua FTO, the Aeroclub of Padua and the group Volo Velistico Patavino. As per tradition, important industry leaders will come to Padua to liven up the rich program of conferences and round tables that make the Salone del Volo - Air Show an interesting opportunity to exchange ideas and debate issues related to aviation and flying holidays. Another novelty of the Air Show 2012 will be the involvement of Aeronautical Institutes and Universities that will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and present to the public their activities in the aviation sector in Italy and new occupational possibilities in the field of aeronautics, with stands and talks organized especially for the exhibition in Padua.

A very interesting fact for visitors owning an aircraft will be the possibility to fly directly to the airport of Padua, a feature that adds further excitement to this spectacular exhibition dedicated to aviation. During the fair, the Elite Evolution helicopter simulator - one of the best in Italy- will also be available at an exclusive price only for the visitors of the Padua Exhibition Centre, but you must book in advance. In addition, by simply booking at the fair, visitors can take a helicopter ride to admire Padua from the sky. And if you want to fully experience the Salone del Volo - Air Show, and take part in all the events planned during the three days of the event, book now your hotel in Padua!
