In addition to military training the Department of Defence of the DDPS offers several possibilities for those who enter professional life, especially thanks to more than 450 apprenticeship positions.
On August 29 and for about ten days, AIR14 PAYERNE will allow us to properly commemorate the following anniversaries: 100 years of our Air Force, the 50th anniversary of the Patrouille Suisse and the 25th anniversary of the PC-7 TEAM.
A fabulous and different program each day will be implemented meeting the aspirations of every visitor. In the air, legendary aircraft will give way to the most prestigious aerobatic teams and the most powerful jets. They will compete for precision and professionalism to present an unforgettable sight. On the ground, the exhibition of the Army will allow you to learn about its latest acquisitions for our safety and discover the various professions in the Army.
The exceptional "Dream job street" presents the business of aviation and, who knows, will inspire your vocation and your dreams of flying …..
In our spectacular "static display", you can get close to dozens of aircraft and you can dive back into the history of our aviation by visiting the hall of the "Centenary" dedicated to them.
All actors in the preparation of this event, the committee, volunteers, neighboring municipalities, the cantons of Vaud and Fribourg, The Swiss Railway, the Swiss Postal Bus Service, our partners and our Army troops: everyone has given and will give of their best in order to allow this festival to take place under the best possible conditions. I want to thank them all warmly.
But it is you, the visitors, who are at the center of the event. We have planned everything so that, for you, everything happens for the best and that you keep a lasting memory of your visit to AIR14 and Payerne.
Many visitors have already given their confidence early by ordering their tickets in advance. I highly recommend purchasing your tickets online. However, we have provided sufficient funds at the official entry points, so that each of you can easily access AIR14 without having to wait in large queues.
The party will be beautiful, and if heaven grants us a ray of sunshine or two, it will be an extraordinary show.
I wish you a warm welcome in the grounds of AIR14 and thank you for your support.
