REVIEWS - Airshows

No other event attracts more people than an airshow with attendance at some of the worlds major shows easily exceeding the 200,000 + mark. An airshow is also the only place, where the general public can get close up and personal with some of the worlds most exciting, and at times most secret, military aircraft.  Having a chat with a pilot, taking some nice photos in front of your favourite aircraft or watching a thrilling display is what an airshow is all about. Airshows are not held just for the pleasure of the audience, they are also used to recruit future pilots and ground crew. When asked, many pilots claim that attending an airshow at an early age with their father was their first experience that lead to a career in aviation. Some airshows are combined with an aviation fair, some are purely the domain of the military (a base open house for instance) while others are privately organized.  All this does not really matter as all airshows have one thing in common in that not only are they exciting for the general public who attend, enthusiasts young and old alike, but they are also extremely exciting for the actual performers themselves!

Unfortunately we can`t be everywhere at once and while there are many airshows that take place every year we are not able to cover them all for you. However, you will find the more interesting events our team has attended in this section. Have a look!
