Dominican flag flies for the first time among host countries at aviation fair in the U.S.A.
The Dominican exhibition is the result of a joint effort coordinated by the DA with all the agencies in the sector, the Ministry of Tourism, the Dominican Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC) and the collaboration of airport operators.
The Dominican National Flag flew for the first time among the host countries of the EAA AirVenture 2022 private aviation fair, held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
A Dominican delegation, led by the Airport Department and its executive director, Victor Pichardo, attended the event, the most important private aviation event in the United States, promoting our country as a destination and especially the Private Aviation Protocol, which aims to attract this type of tourism.
“We appreciate that for the first time our Tricolor Flag is being highlighted in an event like this, with global significance for private aviation, this is the result of the great support we have received the airport and aviation sector of our President Luis Abinader,” said Pichardo.
The Dominican Republic has participated in this fair since 2009, however, the country’s presence had never been distinguished with the placement of the National Flag.
In this event, the Dominican Republic exhibits a colorful stand where a large number of pilots have paraded requesting information on tourist spots to fly to in the national territory.
The Dominican pavilion was visited by the fair’s director, Charlie Becker, as well as Aurelina Prado, Boing’s Global Services Operations Manager; Olga Custodio, first Latina pilot in the U.S. Air Force; Tania Herrera, corporate representative of American Airlines, among others.
The Dominican exhibition is the result of a joint effort coordinated by the DA with all the agencies in the sector, the Ministry of Tourism (MITUR), the Dominican Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC) and the collaboration of airport operators.
The delegation was also accompanied by the Dominican ambassador to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Julio Peña.
EAA AirVenture has been held every year in the United States since 1953, and brings together more than 700,000 aviation enthusiasts and nearly 10,000 aircraft from around the world.
