For one week each summer, over 500,000 Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) members and aviation enthusiasts from more than 60 countries come together at the EAA AirVenture at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA, to celebrate the past, present and future in the world of flight. Hamilton is the official timekeeping sponsor of this exciting event and is always accompanied by brand ambassador Nicolas Ivanoff, who also participates in the airshow.
Known as “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration”, EAA AirVenture has more than 10,000 aircraft on display, such as Warbirds, vintage, homebuilts and ultralights. As well as impressive daily air displays, including aerobatics, there are fireworks, concerts, a fly-in theater, forums, workshops and demonstrations.
Free Flight World Masters
The Free Flight World Masters, also a highlight in the Hamilton agenda, takes place in cities throughout France.
Offering spectators stunning aerobatics, the stunt pilots “battle” one another in free flight with accompanying music. The audience then votes for a winner of the battle, based on who performed the most impressive and fascinating aerobatics. The first Free Flight World Masters in Valence will take place in July 2015 and the equivalent show is set for the fifth time in Sainte-Maxime in October 2015; for both events Hamilton is the official timekeeping sponsor. The Free Flight World Masters in Sainte-Maxime has become the gathering spot for a record-breaking attendance of 140,000 flight enthusiasts and spectators, enjoying the magnificent show by the beautiful beach in the south of France. The lineup this year includes flying displays by the world famous La Patrouille de France, Tiger helicopters and of course the Hamilton planes.
