Strong downwash at Sanicole

The Czech airforce will bring an unique collection of helicopters to Sanicole, displaying all its currently active combat types over our airfield.

First of all, they will perform a simulated Combat Search & Rescue mission with two icons from the Cold War, the Mi-17 transport helicopter and the Mi-24. These helicopters are part of 221 squadron based at Namest in the south of the country and are members of the NATO Tiger Association.

Completing the Czech air force line-up is a very rare display outside its border of a little-known helicopter, the Polish-built W-3 Sokol which will surprise you with its stunning agility in a search & rescue demonstration.
