Our participation in Fly Future

We are pleased to announce our participation in this important initiative, the second edition of which will be inaugurated in a few weeks.

In fact, Fly Future 2023, organized by the Ifimedia association and Mediarkè, will take place on Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 May 2023 (from 09.00 to 17.00), at the European University of Rome (UER) (https://www.universitaeuropeadiroma.it/). The program includes over 25 conventions, conferences and round tables, which will be attended by civil and military pilots, astronauts, managers of flight schools and aeroclubs, managers of organisations, airlines and aerospace companies, researchers, professionals and experts.

When the organizers invited us to participate in the second edition of Fly Future (https://www.flyfuture.it/), we had no doubts about the opportunity to be present, bearing in mind that we are facing the only national information and orientation event for those who, especially young people, intend to find an opportunity to work and career. As all the members have understood by now, the orientation of our association is not to remain strictly confined to the philatelic sphere, but to range also in the field of aeronautical culture, without any fear of being distorted, as making itself known and making itself known our initiatives and our studies, especially when it comes to an environment made up of young people, can only be positive. In the long list of exhibitors we can therefore also see our logo scrolling by.

The various appointments will take place in 5 classrooms:

  • “John Paul II” Auditorium, the pontiff who achieved the record for flights by plane and helicopter (floor -1);
  • Aula Master, renamed “Aula Mario Calderara”, the first Italian pilot in 1909 (floor +1);
  • Aula Tesi, renamed “Aula Rosina Ferrario”, the first Italian female pilot in 1913 (floor +1);
  • Room 101, renamed “Aula Aristide Faccioli”, the builder of the first Italian aircraft in 1909 (floor +1);
  • Room 102, renamed “Aula Luigi Broglio”, the father of Italian space activities (floor +1).

A large exhibition area will be set up with the desks and stands of aeronautical bodies, flight schools, flying clubs, specialized companies and associations, including ours, as well as some aeronautical and space themed exhibitions. We will therefore be present with our own stand, to tell the wonderful world of airmail, given that on the occasion of Fly Future 2023, three important anniversaries in Italian aerospace history will also be celebrated:

  • 110th anniversary of the flight license of Rosina Ferrario, first female pilot in Italy (1913-2023);
  • 100th anniversary of the foundation of the Air Force (1923-2023);
  • 40th anniversary of the first mission into orbit of the European space laboratory “Spacelab 1” aboard the shuttle “STS-9 Columbia” (1983-2023).

In this regard, some collections prepared by AIDA members will be available for visitors to view at our stand:

  • Rosina Ferrario – First female pilot in Italy in 1913.
  • Centenary of the Italian Air Force – Milestones of History
  • Tenth Anniversary Air Cruise – Outward flight – The service mail
  • Tenth Anniversary Air Cruise – Return Flight – Newfoundland Stop
  • The Italian contribution to the conquest of space
  • Some trailers of other collections of our partners
