100 years of water flying on Lake Como
Como is a water aviation sanctuary, where one of the earliest seaplane gatherings and contests took place in 1913, the "Gran Premio dei Laghi", won by the Frenchman Roland Garros.
Como is unique among historical water flying places, as it is the only one where regular seaplane activity still continues today.
The operator is the Aero Club Como, the largest seaplane facility and flight school in Europe, and also the oldest seaplane operation in the world (a record certified by the Guinness World RecordsTM).
Centenary celebrations took place on October 4th and 5th 2013.
A report on the celebration will be published soon.
