Jean Todt, FIA president and former Ferrari DS, visited our Aero Club together with his wife, the actress Michelle Yeoh. On board our aircrafts, they performed a pleasant flight over the Aeolian Islands and Etna's summit craters accompanied by their friends. Upon arrival they enjoyed a recreation with typical Sicilian sweets and liqueur!
The Aero Club Catania aircrafts participated to the Aero Club Fly Party 2013 organized at Montagnana airfield (PD) by the Association of Italian Historical Aircraft (HAG). It was an opportunity to show our SIAI 205 and, more importantly, an opportunity for our ATPL Cadet Pilots to plan and conduct a flight different from the usual training programme.

The I-TELT crew was composed by, Captain Quattrocchi, Antonio Luca and Alessandro Cavallaro.
First stop: Serristori airfield (AR), where we had an excellent dinner. The next stop took place in Montagnana, where we watched the Air Show. After lunch at Caorle airfield we were heading back to Catania LICC.
