70 aircrafts attended the Kuhmo Fly-In 2012

KUHMO FLY IN MID JULY

Kuhmo Airfield (EFKH) is an uncontrolled airfield in eastern Finland. The airfield has been recently renovated and is now in good condition. The stone ash surface is flexible enough to hold over the winter but creates a solid, smooth surface suitable even for propeller planes. The airfield is usable from late spring (mid-May) to October-November depending on the weather and snow situation. There are no landing or other fees for using the airfield.

Aviation activity in Kuhmo is on the rise again. After active gliding years from the 1960′s to the 80′s, there was a short break but now the Kuhmo Flying Club (Kuhmon Ilmailukerho) is active again. The club owns one ultralight Atec Zephyr 122 aircraft and there are now a number of members with their own planes in Kuhmo, too.

The Traditional Kuhmo Fly-In is arranged every year in July during the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival. The Fly-In takes place right before the start of the Festival (mid July). Please check exact dates at http://www.kuhmofestival.fi/. In 2012 there were 70 planes attending the fly-in so you won’t be alone! Please register from the link on front page.

Every year we want to invite all self-built and especially Van’s RV planes to visit Kuhmo. Please join, see, enjoy!
