Bulgaria's Pleven Airport Holds Sports Aviation Show
The "Bohot" airport near Bulgaria's northern city of Pleven is holding Sunday the 9th festival of light and sports aviation "Wings for All."
For the first time, the 2011 edition is subtitled "First Wings" because it is dedicated to the beginning of aviation in Bulgaria and its recent 100th anniversary.
The festival's agenda includes several lectures and an exhibit of light planes, paragliders, hang gliders, radio controlled rockets and planes.
The first five pilots are to graduate from their training program at the Bohot airport, the TV channel bTV reported. They underwent 100 hours of technical training and 45 flight hours with experienced pilots. The five will receive their licenses for piloting light and sports planes in November.
