Emergency service (118) to go operational by night
Representatives from ENAC, ENAV, Piedmont Region/118, AirGreen and the Aeroclub of Turin took part.
This first meeting will be followed by others, but initial agreement was reached for an experimental period up until midnight for several months, start from the end of this year.
Following this test period, the service should become functional 24 hours a day.
Our Club member Cosimo Pica, counsellor and advisor to AOPA ITALY and point of contact for Piedmont has advised us of the interesting activities designed to improve the operating conditions for General Aviation and VDS within the national airspace areas.
At the 2013 Annual General Meeting held on June 6 this year at Ozzano Emilia, the President, Rinaldo Gaspari, made the following statement:
<< [ ...] I wish to underline something which we consider to be a historic step forward [...] and that is that the much-needed process of reduction and reclassification of the National Airspace areas has finally got under way. After the somewhat difficult conquest of the Linate Airport CTR, which has been significantly reduced thanks to the AOPA project to the benefit of VFR users, it is now the turn of the air spaces of the North East [...] .
The study, which was submitted on April 21, 2012, initially covering the airspaces of the North East, was developed for AOPA by two of its members: Capt. Marco Grilli and Capt. James Gazzotti [...] .
Judged acceptable by the ENAC Airspace Directorate, it was then submitted to AMI (the Italian Air Force) and ENAV for evaluation and adjustments. The rest is history.
The AIRAC brochure containing the final changes will be issued as soon as possible and foresees a delicate period of experimental evaluation before being made final. >>

Mourning in the world of Gliding
The '"Association of Gold Medals for Athletic Prowess" site published his enviable sports biography :
An athlete of the Larian Gliding Aeroclub (formerly the AVM Alzate Brianza), of which he was President, he became interested in gliding at an early age, following in the footsteps of his elder brother Richard.
Beginning in 1960 he participated in thirteen editions of the World Championships, coming fourth in 1963, sixth in '76, second in '78, fifth in '81, '89 eighth and tenth in '92.
In 1982 in Rieti he won the European title and was third in 1996 in Finland and second in Spain in 2001.
Among the various specialties permitted in the gliding discipline he was seventeen times the Italian Champion.
He had over 6,000 hours in gliders and 700 of powered flight.
His best performance was in Rieti on 11th August '85, when after eleven closely contested races, he won the title of World Champion in the Standard Class, the first won by an Italian aviator.
His most prestigious flight, and Italian record, was accomplished on September 5th '92 when he flew in one single hop from Como to Taranto, nearly 900 km, the entire length of the Italian peninsula.
He was a keen advocate at an international level for the creation of the World Class which was held in Turkey in '97, the first world championship of its type.
He was President and Vice-President of the International Aeronautical Federation on behalf of the Aero Club of Italy.
In 2009 at the World Air Games held in Turin, he was the highly-appreciated Race Director for the Gliding competitions.
He was awarded the title of Knight Officer of the Republic.
Flying day for Collegno school children
After a briefing in the classroom by Cmdte. Di Bari and greeting to the participants by Councilor Macagno, 26 people were given flights thanks to the voluntary assistance by Club Members Mauro Casatti, Carlo Maria Ferrero, Filippo Ferrero, Maurizio Fiorilli, Giampiero Grandi, Eugenio Rizzi, Domenico Scaiola and Alessandro Villa.
The morning concluded with a reception offered by the Aero Club.
Giancarlo Grinza wins the 2013 Italian Gliding Championships!
There were 39 entrants in the 2013 Italian Single Class Gliding Championships, which took place in Ferrara between the 7th and 16th of June. Giancarlo Grinza of the Aero Club Torino deservedly won the 2013 title, beating Riky Brigliadori and Mauro Brunazzo in a two-seater with Andrea Acquaderni.
The winning scores were:
1. Giancarlo Ginza Ae.C. Turin 3518 points
2. Riccardo Brigliadori AVA 3410 points
3. Mauro Brunazzo / Andrea Acquaderni ACAO 3269 points
To find a similar achievement by a Torinese glider pilot we need to go back to 1970 when Engineer Carlo Della Chiesa won the title with an FK3 glider, followed by the amazing Nino Perotti, who was the Italian Standard Class Champion in the years 1972, 1973, 1979, 1980 and 1981.
Since then we have not enjoyed much success.
The weather was reasonably good with five flyable days out of six, thus allowing the smooth running of the events.
Simultaneously with the Championships, the promotion-class races, in which our own Laura Valvassori was promoted to the "national" category, also took place.
It was noteworthy that for the first time there was a significant participation by lady pilots in both the Italian Championships and in the promotion category.
To round off the event in top class style, the legendary Egidio Babbi offered competitors and organizers a splendid final evening with a fish-based meal.
