We Are Starting SIAF 2022!

Forget the restrictions and savour this year’s International Aviation Days SIAF 2022 in Malacky to the fullest.

 We have good news for all fans of aircraft technology and flying. Along with assessing the May Aviation Fest 2022 in Piešťany, the organising team is today already working on preparations for the largest aviation event in Slovakia, the International Aviation Days SIAF 2022, which will take place at the Malacky-Kuchyňa Air Base at the end of the summer holidays, on 27 and 28 August 2022. The organisers promise two days with a diverse aviation programme, dynamic and static exhibitions and accompanying attractions for families with children. As is tradition, on the eve of the flight days we will learn the names of those who will receive prestigious prize in the Golden Wings poll, the National Air Force Award of the Slovak Republic. 

 Despite moving from the Sliač Air Base to the Malacky-Kuchyňa Air Base last year, the International Aviation Days SIAF were a great success among flying hobbyists. Not even the anti-pandemic measures could prevent more than 35,000 visitors from coming to the Záhorie region and enjoying the rich programme both in the skies and on the ground. The 11th International Aviation Days SIAF this year will again include dozens of sports and military aircraft from different countries, as well as precise acrobatics performed by world-renowned formations. 

 “Organising of the International Aviation Days SIAF was a great challenge for us last year. Not only did we move the event from Sliač to the Malacky-Kuchyňa Air Base after a one-year break, but we were also hindered by the constantly changing measures related to the Covid-19 pandemic. I’m very pleased that this year we’ll be able to open the gates without restrictions and experience a beautiful day of aviation in full without masks or compulsory inspections,” says Hubert Štoksa, Director of the Slovak Aviation Agency, the main organiser of the event. 

The Aviation Days organised at the Malacky-Kuchyňa Air Base obtained very good feedback from visitors. The layout of the air base allows aircraft to roll on the runway right in front of the spectators, who can then enjoy the unique beauty of the machines close up. The InternationalAviation Days SIAF team will once again ensure that visitors enjoy two days full of presentations of aircraft technology as well as the skills of domestic and foreign pilots. Thanks to the main programme partner, the Ministry of Defence of the Slovak Republic, invitations were sent from the level of the Commander of the Air Force of the Slovak Republic to xy countries. Soon the organisers will start revealing to fans all the confirmed participants who are to take part in this brilliant air show this year. 

The Ministry of Defence is a proud partner of the largest air show with international participation in Slovakia. I have no doubt that once again this year the lovers of both air and ground military equipment and those of the armed forces and its units in general will come and enjoy themselves. As a fan, I am greatly looking forward to all the surprises to come, which, as I know from the discussions, will be in abundance," says Slovak Minister of Defence, Jaroslav Naď. 

We will also commemorate several important anniversaries during these International Aviation Days. Aside from being part of the official celebrations of the 78th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising, we will celebrate the 29th anniversary of the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic, the 18th anniversary of the Slovakia’s accession to the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and Constitution Day of the Slovak Republic. Commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Aero L-39 Albatros designer Jan Vlček will also be important.
