Default Splash in 2017.

Here is the Google translation :-

IV SPLASH-IN 2017
For the IV Splash-In of 2017, we will make the desire of the pilots who visit us, that is, that during a full day, they can enjoy the flights in the bay of Pollensa
This year we give the title of IV Splash-In between the sea and the mountain, given that we will have the collaboration of the Aeroclub of Sabadell, making a flight to La Cerdanya
The program that we have prepared in principle will be
Day 28 of April, Friday, arrival of the hydros to Son Bonet, food and in the afternoon in formation flight to the Port of Pollensa
April 29th, Saturday, it will be a day that we will dedicate to our visitors to enjoy their flights on our island, where we will prepare a series of routes, and invite our friends who wish to do some flight in seaplane
Day 30 of April, Sunday, morning, flight from Puerto de Pollensa to La Cerdanya airport, lunch, afternoon visit to the town of La Seo and evening gala dinner
Note, we will invite all the pilots of airplanes and ULM, who want to come, so that they can be added to this concentration. Pilots wishing to participate in this event must send their request to fundacio@fam-ib.org, in order to manage the accommodation
Day1 of May, Monday, Dispersion of our visitors and return to their points of origin

I am not sure if this event is going ahead now, just read on FB that it has been postponed and there are no posters about it around the area. I will let you know if i can find out what is happening .

I am afraid this event will not happen, this is a translation of a report in the UH :-

Quote:
The international meeting of civil seaplanes Splash-IN that celebrates for four years the Mallorcan Aeronautical Foundation, is history.

The Chief of Staff of the Air Force has denied permission for the foundation to use the facilities of Pollença military aerodrome between 15 and 17 September, as planned.

Defense believes that the approval on 27 October in the plenary session of the City Council of Pollença of a "Proposal on the demonstration against the conversion of the Bay of Pollença into a runway for hydroplanes and the need to preserve it from projects and activities impacting" The Splash-IN 2017.

In his defense, Defense explains that the criterion of the General Staff of the Air Force is "that the facilities of the Military Aerodrome of Pollença are only used outside military use on an exceptional basis or for urgent reasons".

Default Just a misunderstanding then ... but no Splash-In

https://majorcadailybulletin.com/new...plash-off.html

Quote:
...The air force, however, has advised the organisers - the Majorca Aeronautical Foundation - that it has taken away its permission.

The reason seemingly has to do with a town hall motion last October which was against the use of the bay as a "runway for seaplanes". That motion was raised (and approved) when there was talk of commercial seaplanes operating in the bay. The air force has acknowledged the town hall's decision ...


The town hall, for its part, says that it has no issue with the Splash-In. Quite the contrary, according to the town hall delegate for Puerto Pollensa, Andrés Nevado. "It's a very nice event that is beneficial for tourism." Mayor Miquel Àngel March says that the town hall doesn't know why the air force has withdrawn permission. ...
