Heliwood 2019 begins tomorrow

City council of Halásztelek prepared the area where the event is located. The main tents are set, smaller tents will be ready tomorrow morning. First pilots are testing the flight line, like Filip Ban, and the local ones.

This year the event is sponsored by many companies: Egodrift, ATModels, AccuRC, XLPower, SAB Heli Division, Rotor Tech, ManiaX, The Best 4U, Soxos by Heli-Professional, Tarot are all sponsoring the event. The media background provided by jetfly.hu and - of course  - by us. These companies are sponsoring the event on different ways, but without their help this event cannot be as good as it will be. 

Filip Ban has arrived to Hungary this afternoon, Kan Poonnoi is supposed to arrive tomorrow morning. Antonio Gomez Rosado had to cancel the attendance due to a family problem.
