During this period AOPA Greece will be manning a Pilot Support Office which will provide pilots with all necessary information – airports operating hours, fuel availability and price, hotel suggestions and anything else a pilot may need abroad. This pilot support office will be useful especially to seaplane pilots, who will be flying for the first time in a country that has approved seaplanes just a few months ago.

So far, participating airports are, LGSR Santorini, LGKF Kefalinia, LGZA Zakinthos, LGTS Thessaloniki, LGRP Rhodes, LGSM Samos, LGST Sitia. More airports are to be announced shortly.

These activities include exhibitions of aviation-related material in selected places in central Athens, seaplane and aerobatic operations along the Athens coastline, a Greek aviation forum and above all, of course, the Regional Meeting of IAOPA EU to be held in Αthens, on Sept 27

Participating pilots are invited to attend these activities, in addition to usual visits to Athens cropolis and various Museums.
