Who is coming to OTT25?

 

We are already working on our program and are in contact with potential participants. Unfortunately we can't say anything concrete yet, but we can publish a few reports from past OTTs here. For anyone who has never been to OTT, to get an impression of the event. Enjoy browsing.

The Oldtimer-Fliegertreffen at Hahnweide

 

There was plenty of speculation about it! The decisions for or against the event are equally difficult. As with so many problems, the facts are neither easy nor quick to discuss. First came various crises and then inflation, which made it almost impossible for us to make a reasonable calculation. We hope you understand that our tranquil flying group did not dare to plan a vintage aircraft meeting under these circumstances.

So can the OTT still be saved?

To put everyone's minds at ease: It doesn't look quite so bad.
 In medical terms, it would be called "cardiopulmonary resuscitation" - we have to breathe life back into the patient!
 So we sat down together, looked through dusty files and made a few calls.
 It looks like we still have some gas in the tank, the oil level is OK. We'll charge the battery this year, but then! Then we'll turn the key together, press the starter button and watch as one cylinder after the other reports for work.
 

 

There might be a bit of smoke and banging at the beginning, but at the latest when all the combustion chambers have overheated and only purple fire is flickering out of the exhaust, then we'll be back on the starting line when we send the Oldtimer-Fliegertreffen into its 20th round

from September 12th to 14th, 2025.

The costs for the event are immense, and in the event of bad weather or, even worse, an accident (in 2019 we got away with a black eye), this represents an existential risk for our club. For this reason, we decided at many meetings and discussions beforehand to insure the event accordingly. And that's where you come in! There will be another supporter campaign! As with the OTT 2016, we hope to have you as a supporter. The proceeds from your donations will go directly to finance the appropriate insurance, with the help of which we will minimize our financial risk in the event of an accident. This makes it easier for us to start the organization without any worries and to offer you what you expect! The organization team in the club has hardly changed. The classic car meeting should remain what it was. That is important to us!

How does the supporter campaign work?

Anyone who wants to support the Oldtimer-Fliegertreffen can now not only do it, but also show it! For a donation of at least €15, you can buy an exclusive sticker from us to support our club and the classic car meeting. You won't be able to buy this anywhere else. The proceeds go directly to insurance. When you visit, you will also receive a program booklet and a surprise from us upon presentation of your supporter ID. We will definitely come up with more "goodies" for you!

We look forward to seeing you again in 2025 when it will finally be:

 

A feast for the eyes, a feast for the ears – Hahnweide!

Together with you we will pay homage to the aviation of days gone by, unite Europe's aviation enthusiasts at the site and transform the air above Hahnweide into a Mecca of aviation again!
