Annual small aircrafts show the Al Khor Fly-In kicked off yesterday at the Al Khor Air Strip north of Doha.
The event, which continues today until 4:30pm, is aimed at promoting hobby aviation to the general public, and features a number of ultralights, a few propeller crafts and a helicopter or two.
There weren’t any big air displays on day one, although Lakhwiya do periodically fly by in their powered paragliders.
If you’re looking to spend some of the rest of this weekend outdoors, try to check it out. Here’s some helpful information:
- For QR200, visitors can take a ride in one of the tiny aircrafts, or possibly one of the prop airplanes.
- Food choices are limited, so don’t come hungry, or pack your own snacks.
- Amongst the draws for kids are the usual suspects – bouncing castles and cotton candy.
- With nary a cloud in the crisp blue sky, sunglasses are a really good idea.
Have you been? What did you think?
