25th Malta International Airshow 2017 - 23rd-24th September

Postby Flightline UK » Wed Apr 19, 2017 11:07 am

The Malta International Airshow 2017 will be held on September 23-24. Static display will be at Luqa while the aerial display will take place at SmartCity Malta in the afternoon.

Talks between the Malta Aviation Society and the Minister for Tourism, Dr E. Zammit Lewis, paved the way for a successful outcome and the voluntary organisation can now fully focus on preparations to celebrate 25 consecutive years of airshows held by the Malta Aviation Society.

The Malta Aviation Society is grateful for the team effort from the Ministry for Tourism as talks progressed over the past several months which culminated in an agreement over the Ministry’s support towards the event.

The Hellenic Air Force will participate for the 3rd time in the Malta International Airshow.

The HAF T-6? "Daedalus" Demo Team will be sending one T-6A Texan II to Malta for static Display.
The team had participated for the first time in the 2015 edition when it graced our skies.

The T-6A Aircraft Demonstration Team constitutes an ambitious venture which aims at spreading and cultivating the air concept in the Greek community and at enhancing the morale of the Hellenic Armed Forces, while, at the same time, it is projecting the work of the Hellenic Air Force to the wide public.

The team at Malta International Airshow is looking forward to have again our Mediterranean friends with us.

Double support from the German Navy

The German Naval Air Arm shall again honour us with its assets on static display during the 25th Edition of the Malta International Airshow.

The two assets participating will be a P-3C Orion Maritime Patrol Aircraft accompanied by a DO 228NG used for Pollution Control.

Both aircraft belong to the same squadron, Marinefliegergeschwader 3 based at Nordholz.

This will see the return of German participation after an absence of two years at the show.

The Malta Aviation Society is honoured once again to be able to host once again our German friends.

Swiss PC-7 Team to perform at Malta

Our friends, the Swiss Air Force PC-7 Team will be in malta once again to give us there great displays.

Switzerland will be the 5th country participating in this year's Malta International Airshow, also bringing the number of display teams to two after the Türk Yıldızları(Turkish Stars) where confirmed some weeks ago.

With its dynamic, elegant and precise flight performances, the PC-7 TEAM proves to the public that the Swiss Armed Forces are highly trained and capable of top performances. They show the crowd how they master the dynamics of military flying.

The PC-7 is a two-seater turboprop trainer aircraft manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft Ltd in Stans, Switzerland. The Swiss Air Force procured their PC-7s in 1983. After 25 years in operation, the aircraft were completely modernised in 2008, in order to meet today’s challenges of military pilot training. A state-of-the-art glass cockpit, GPS and autopilot were fitted, developing the PC-7 into a modern training platform for the future pilots of the Swiss Air Force.

The organising team of the Malta International Airshow from the Malta Aviation Society would publicly like to thank the Swiss Air Force and PC-7 Team for accepting our invitation.

Further support from the Royal Air Force

The United Kingdom committed further support for the 25th Edition of the Malta International Airshow. This time four further aircraft will be added to the static display line up.

For the first time ever during the event we will be able to see closely RAF Hawk T2 aircraft coming from @IV(R) Squadron from RAF Valley, while 100 Squadron at RAF Leeming will support the event with two Hawk T1 aircraft.

The Hawk T1 is also operated by the RAF Red Arrows, and 100 Sqn. While the Hawk T1 is used primarily in the advanced flying-training role, it is equipped to an operational standard and is capable of undertaking a war role.

The Hawk T2 is a fully aerobatic, low wing, transonic, 2-seat training aircraft with mission avionics that are representative of front-line aircraft. It is used to train pilots for Tornado GR4, Typhoon and Lightning II

The Malta Aviation Society organisers of the Malta International Airshow are delighted for the further commitment by the Royal Air Force

Saudi Arabia's Royal Air Force To Participate In Malta International Airshow

For the first time in Malta, the Royal Saudi Air Force will be participating in the Malta International Airshow for the show's 25th edition. The aerobatic team division of the Air Force, known as the Saudi Hawks, have been flying for 19 years, and have managed to scoop up a couple of awards in the meantime... including a Guinness World Records.

The Saudi Hawks team was established all the way back in 1998 to celebrate the nation's 100 year anniversary, and consists of seven specifically-modified BAE Hawk Mk65 aircrafts, fitted of course with smoke generators.

They've performed all over the Middle East, but have recently also impressed crowds in the United Kingdom, Austria, Italy, Belgium and Greece. To this day, they also hold the Guinness World Record for the largest sky drawing, where the seven planes used their onboard coloured smoke generators to draw their logo in the skies.

The Saudi Hawks are the third aerobatic team to be confirmed for the 25th edition of the Malta International Airshow, which has also confirmed the participation of the Turkish Stars and the Swiss PC-7 Teams.

The show will feature over 40 different aircraft participating in the static and flying displays, with the list so far featuring seven different countries participating.

The 25th Malta International Airshow is being held between the 23rd and 24 of of September, and will be spread over different places around the island.

The general public is being invited to visit the Air Show grounds in Luqa, where they can watch the various aircraft from a close distance, actually enter in some, and meet pilots, engineers and crew. The entrance fee for that will be €10, with children and teens up till 14 years of age entering for free when accompanied by a paying adult.

In the afternoon, the aerial display will be held in front of Smart City in Xgħajra, and this is of course absolutely free. This is where people all over Malta will be trying to find the best vantage point to witness the show and snap some photos of the Saudi Hawks among others, using the event's official #MAS25 tag.

Breaking: Royal Canadian Air Force to participate at Malta International Airshow

#MAS25

It is with great pleasure that we announce the participation of a CF-188 Hornet from the Royal Canadian Air Force. The Hornet wll increase the variety of static display aircraft at the 25th Edition of the Malta International Airshow.

The supersonic CF-188 Hornet, popularly known as the CF-18, can engage both ground and aerial targets. Its twin engines generate enough thrust to lift 24 full-size pick-up trucks off the ground.

As the Royal Canadian Air Force’s frontline multi-role fighter, the modernized CF-188 is used primarily for air defence, air superiority and tactical support.

After successful Canadian participation in the 1994,1998 and 2015 editions this year will see the debut of a CF-188 Hornet on our shores, a great edition to the airshow.

The Malta Aviation Society (MAS) organisers of the Malta International Airshow would like to publicly thank the Royal Canadian Air Force for confirming their participation once again in Malta. The MAS team are doing their utmost to keep confirming aircraft for both the flying and static display.
