IN THE SURROUNDINGS OF CODROIPO
FRECCE TRICOLORI (NATIONAL AEROBATIC TEAM)
In the early 20's at the airport of Campoformido (UD), a group of pilots began to perform aerobatic manoeuvres with the aim to use them during fights, to exploit the full potential of the aircraft and have the superiority in the air. Demonstrate the skill and the level of training of its pilots became, over the years, a source of pride for the Military Aeronautics that, on 1st March 1961 decided to set up in Rivolto (UD) the 313th Aerobatic Training Squadron "Frecce Tricolori", the National Aerobatic Team, with the task of representing the country, the Armed Forces and the Military Air Force in Italy and abroad.
A few kilometres from Codroipo and 30 minutes from the Relais Picaron there is the seat of the base of the Italian Aerobatic Team, which practices every morning flight.
Guided tours of the Rivolto airbase are provided (cost € 10.00 per person, children free under 12), to know the legendary Frecce Tricolori. The visit lasts about 3 hours.
In case the National Aerobatic Team is not engaged with the schedule of performances, you may have the opportunity to watch its training in flight.
