DB Seabank Resort, Melhia Bay, Malta

The 2016 Convention ventured into the Mediterainan to the beautiful Islands of Malta, where the very first EAC Convention was held and the birthplace of the EAC.  A varied programme with speakers from across the Globe and a focus on the similarities and differences between the world of Air Racing and Airshows.  Human Factors was as ever an important aspect of the convention and we welcomed Dr David 'Doc' Stevenson back for another excellent session.

Our thanks to the Malta Aviation Society for their support in hosting the event and excellent support.
