After two years, the Open Door Day of Čáslav Airport will be held again. This already traditional two-year event focuses on the presentation not only of the 21st Tactical Air Force Base, but also for most of the other units of the Czech Army. An unmistakable part is the dynamic demonstration of primarily military aircraft technology, which is so partial about the air show. The accompanying program will be part of the whole day.
This Open Day will be held on May 25, 2019.
“It is an honor for us to re-engage with Jagello 2000, a proven partner who has long-term experience with much larger events,”
said the 21st Base Commander Tactical Air Force Čáslav Colonel Petr Tomanek.
In recent years, it has been shown that the event can attract around 50,000 visitors of not only aviation fans. “The day of the open door will be designed so that all families with children will have fun all day long,” explains the director of the 21st major event, Václav Strnad. The plan is a re-extensive children’s playground, where different games and competitions will be prepared for the smallest and bigger ones. In the framework of static demonstrations, the Czech Army’s ground and air forces will be presented.
An important fact is that the entrance will be free again. This year visitors can remind us of the successful operation of the L-39 Albatros Army of the Czech Republic. Symbolically, just in the year of the Open Door Day, the army will cease operation of these L-39ZA airplanes.
In 2017, viewers had the opportunity to see, in addition to the display of Czech Air Force demonstrations, such as the performance of the world-famous acrobatic group Patrouille Suisse from Switzerland, a display team from Belgium, the Flying Bulls acrobatic group or Martin Šonka’s performance. The legendary MiG-15UTI or the Czech L-159 in the colors of the British Spitfire aircraft were also seen in the air.
