NEWS: ROTAX FLY-IN 2023 CONCLUDES WITH A BIG SUCCESS. EVENT CONCEPT SET TO GO GLOBAL.
Gunskirchen, Austria, August 23st, 2023 – This year, the Rotax Fly-In on August 19 at the Weiße Möwe Wels airfield – close to the BRP-Rotax production facility - played host to more than 130 aircraft and 280 guests, who had come from all across Europe and beyond. It marked one of the best visited years for the event. The highlight of the gathering: the community of aviation enthusiasts coming to-gether and engaging in discussions about technology and their shared passion for flying. The program ensured that visitors had an informative and enjoyable experience: trial flights with Rotax engines, a guided tour of the BRP-Rotax company, showcasing VR maintenance technology, and even a flight simulator. The event received the support of renowned partners like Garmin, Aeroshell, Bose, and Rogers Data, who offered product presentations and valuable insights at their stands.
"Promoting exchanges within our community is of great importance to us. This allows us, both as a company and as an industry, to keep evolving," commented Peter Oelsinger, General Manager of BRP-Rotax / Member of the Management Board, Vice President Sales, Marketing RPS-Business & Commu-nications. "That's why I am particularly thrilled that, since last year, we've been able to secure keynote speakers, who address the topics that are of interest to our customers." Johannes Neumann (EASA), Trevor Pegrum (Garmin Europe Ltd.), Stefano Mavilio (Tecnam), Bartlomiej Walas (Bartolini Air) and Theodora Sick (Bose Aviation) delivered their presentations on the BRP-Rotax stage and led engaging discussions afterward.
