We are glad to announce that July 10-12 this year Aerodrome Spilve will host the International Riga Fly-In 2015. The event will be focused on the flying society but on July 11 aerodrome Spilve will open the doors also to the general public to give an opportunity to people of Riga and guests to see plenty of different aircraft, an airshow and the aerodrome itself.
To Spilve users:
NEW PROCEDURES EFF 29MAY14
New AIP chapter on aerodrome Spilve with new flight rules and procedures is effective May29, 2014. Even if one single light minded pilot will neglect or break these rules, we all can get punished.
Every pilot who did not attend one of the two seminars organized in May shall learn the information independently and sign the special instruction journal which will be available in Spilve briefing room starting evening of May 27.
The EVRS AIP chapter can be downloaded HERE NB! The meteorological minimum for VFR flights in Spilve ATZ shall be the same as for Riga CTR (visibility minimum 5km and clouds not lower than 1500 ft). Regarding current WX consult Riga ATIS.
