After 15 years of being a free event, AIRMEET will introduce an admission fee of 10€,
while children 14 and under can still attend for free. We understand that this is a
change and may surprise some attendees, but we want to emphasize that this decision was
made with the future of AIRMEET in mind.
As the event has grown and become more popular, so have the costs associated with
organizing it. To ensure that AIRMEET remains a healthy and sustainable event for years
to come, we have had to introduce this admission fee.
We have, however, made sure to provide a benefit to attendees by making parking free. We
hope that this will help offset the cost and make the event more accessible to everyone.
We appreciate your understanding and support as we work to continue bringing you the
best RC action and aerial performances at AIRMEET.
