Czech Republic, August 27-30 2020
Olomouc Airport

Introductory words of the mayor

"We have no transoceanic ports and no transoceanic ships. The air is our sea." These were the words said by Jan Bervida in 1929, a main promoter of civil aviation in Czechoslovakia. Our pilots soon became world leaders and our aircraft industries were able to produce machines of the highest quality. I believe that these words about Czech aerial sea were, in many aspects, proven right - this event is part of this heritage.  That is why Olomouc will host the 43rd Grand Prix of model airplanes in early June.

Airplanes and aerosport belong to our city. Olomouc has a particular place in the history of Czech aviation. The airport in Neredin is indeed one of the ports of this aerial sea - it hosted the first flight of Jan Kaspar in Moravia and the local airport used to play an important role for Czech Air Force. The airplane model community has a strong representation in Olomouc and I am pleased that the community has a good reputation also in the world.

Our city hosts the Czech National Championship on a regular basis - it hosted a World Championship in this beautiful and highly recognised sport as well. I believe this year will make both the participants and the spectators very happy. I dare to say that thanks to airplane models we return to our childhood, regardless of age, when almost every boy loved models, airplanes and aerial adventures.
