A safe experience is a great experience

Safety first. Both in the air and on the ground. This also applies to the AIRPOWER22. That is why the gates to AIRPOWER22 are open to all visitors who respect the rules for the event area.

What are the rules for AIRPOWER22?

Far simpler than the rules for operational pilots are the rules of AIRPOWER22. Above all, no objects may be brought that could be thrown or fired or which could otherwise disturb or endanger the peace, order, and security of the event site.

Special attention is paid to this when checking people and baggage:
