Al Ain to host musical aerobatics competition

posted on 20/01/2010: 1664 views



The UAE's historic Oasis City here will host another Middle East first this month, as Aero GP — a highlight of the Al Ain Aerobatic Show which takes place on January 27-30 — introduces musically 
scored aerobatics to its three-part competition.

Entertainment is being woven into Aero GP — known as the Formula One of air racing — when six pilots compete with each other across multi-plane air racing, air combat and the new scored aerobatics disciplines. Precision target aiming — a favourite of the crowd and formerly part of Aero GP — will be an independent demonstration this year.

"The addition of a musical aerobatics discipline brings competitors a new challenge and audiences a new and inspirational dimension to the experience,” said Faisal Al Sheikh, head, Major Events Division of Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, which hosts the aerobatics event.

"Aero GP is aimed at people of all ages and is intended to inspire the crowds. It will showcase the world's best piloting skills, the wonder of flight and human achievement, set against Al Ain's stunning desert,” 
he added.

At present, the planes are being dismantled to be shipped to Abu Dhabi where they will be reassembled, ready for the pilots to put them through their paces. – Khaleej Times
