Rencontre Internationale d’Oldtimers RIO
by Association pour la Promotion du Patrimoine Aéronautique
Die Abkürzung RIO steht für Rencontres Internationales d’Oldtimers, also Internationales Oldtimertreffen. Nach zwanzig erfolgsgekrönten Jahren wurde die Organisation dieses beliebten Events von unserem Verein APPA übernommen. Unser Ziel ist es, diese Tradition am Leben zu erhalten!
What does RIO mean?
The abbreviation RIO means «International Meeting of Oldtimers». The annual meeting has been held for twenty years before our young association, APPA, decided to resume the organization .
During the weekend of the 28th and 29th of June 2014 on the airfield of Fribourg-Écuvillens.
The RIO is a meeting of historic aircraft from Switzerland and elsewhere allowing fans, curious and lovers to admire these aircraft from the past with their families and discuss with their pilots in a very friendly atmosphere.
Classic cars, books, model airplanes…
Because these flying machines are part of our historical heritage. Their exceptional conservation gives us the chance to observe them in their natural environment, in the air or on tarmac of an airfield.
Why helping us?
Because there are lots of little things that will make this meeting possible and enjoyable. In short, we know how to fly but we don’t have wings..! Of course you will benefit from your support, because we will offer you tickets to come and participate in the meeting! And for the rest, please visit the «Rewards» section.
