Czech Republic, Jun 7-9 2019
Dear supporters of model sports,
please accept my cordial invitation to Olomouc where the 42nd Grand Prix of Czech Republic will take place at the Neredin airport in June. I believe it will be a significant event, held under the auspices of the FAI, not only for the competitors themselves, but also for all aviation fans.
Hosting the Grand Prix is very honourable to the city for several reasons. Firstly, it is an event with an international reputation, secondly it enriches the list of sports events and last but not least it is an event commemorating the respectable tradition of aviation in Olomouc. The history of aviation in Olomouc dates back to August 1910 when the first airplane in Moravia took off from the military training camp, today’s Olomouc Airport. The aviation pioneer Jan Kaspar piloted the plane. Olomouc Airport served for many decades as a significant point of the Czechoslovak Army Air Force and as a civilian airport. The airport’s potential is evidenced by the fact that in 2015 it hosted the World Championship in Pylon Racing.
Professional flying with large aviation models is a very challenging sport that offers enjoyment to both modellers and audience. I am delighted that this spectacular race will take place in Olomouc again. Personally, I must admit to have a close relationship to airplane modelling myself as I have dedicated many years to it, though I have never achieved the level of a World Champion. I will be more than happy to observe the work of others.
I wish all participants of the Grand Prix a pleasant stay in Olomouc, a fair race, the best weather and success. To visitors, I wish excellent experiences.
Mgr. Miroslav Žbánek, MPA
Mayor of the Statutory City of Olomouc
