Schedule of events :

Aircraft started arriving at Sitia Airport around 10 am. They all parked at the South (new) apron since space would not be enough at the small apron (old). By 4 pm most aircraft had arrived and pleasure flights to local residents already took place, as well as demonstration flights to pilots by the crew of the "Star", Diamond DA40TDI Reg. OE-KDC. Around 6pm last pilots and passengers left for downtown Sitia where they had an afternoon coffee and some local cakes. After checking in the hotels participants met again at 10pm for a group dinner at the tavern downtown.

Next morning some of the 24 aircraft refueled (total 1600 liters) and started departing one by one. By 1pm the first aircraft were already landed at Ikaros airfield. Again there were demonstration flights from the "Star" crew to pilots. Participants enjoyed the complimentary catering facilities provided by Ikaros airfield and by 5pm the 17 aircraft and pilots had left back for their bases.
