Continuation of the Primary School Guided Visits


altToday, 17 April, the 2A class of the Agazzi Primary School (Turin) came to visit us at the airport.

Our small visitors were first introduced to some of the airport activities and were then taken to see the 118 Rescue Helicopter and its crew. Finally, they also had the opportunity of seeing a glider at first hand and were able to see for themselves what it was like to be at the controls.

As can be well imagined, the children and their teachers went away full of enthusiasm for the experience.

The hourly cost will be

The Aero Club carries out restoration of the play area/library of thdale infantile Regina Margherita


altOn Wednesday 2nd April,following a request by the FORMA Association of the Regina Margherita Children's Hospital of Turin, the Aero Club began the task of restoration of the area known as the "bibliomouse", located on the ground floor of the hospital and used by children from all its wards.

The initiative resulted from a collaborative agreement with the various associations within the hospital (FORMA, UGI, Rare Diseases) as a follow-up to the "small aviators" day which the Aero Club has sponsored each September for the last four years.

The work, (entirely financed by the Aero Club and carried out by Vincenzo Bannino's company VIBA) was deemed necessary, given the condition it was currently in, some 10 years after its innauguration.

The work will be carried out in two phases (April and May) in line with the requirements of the hospital.

A commemorative plaque will be appended to recall the intervention by the Aero Club.
