On June 7-9, 2013, from Friday to Sunday, the Sodankylä Aviation Club (Sodankylän Ilmailukerho) organizes a whole-family Aviation Event at the Sodankylä airport. Saturday, July 8, with dedicated shows, exhibitions and events, is specifically reserved for the general public.
A special emphasis during the Aviation Event is to present flying and other aviation activities from the viewpoint of the locally ever more important mining industry. The Aviation Event provides an opportunity to observe and experience aviation both as a hobby and a profession.
In connection of the Sodankylä Aviation Event, on Friday June 7, a seminar will be held concentrating on questions such as how to best ensure fast traffic communications and how best fulfil the requirements of the aviation rescue service, from the point of view of the different actors in Central Finnish Lapland.
During the seminar, representatives from the fields of aviation, mining, cold-area testing, and others, will discuss their visions for the future of the Sodankylä airport, and its versatile development.
The seminar is arranged together with the Sodankylä Municipality and other partners.
