2020 Air Shows & Open Houses

Air shows have been a popular event in the United States, Canada, Europe and around the world, for decades.

These shows, air expos and base open houses offer the general public a chance to view both static aircraft displays and aerial performances, up close and personal.

And they also provide an opportunity to meet and interact with the pilots and staff of these aircraft.

Performances by aerial demonstration teams such as the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, Navy Blue Angels, Red Arrows, Snowbirds, Frecce Tricolori and Patrouille Suisse are consistent draws across the world.

So, whether this weekend's show be at the huge, unique Oshkosh Airventure, the Reno National Championship Air Races, the Paris Air Show or a smaller, less well-known "local" air show, it will be a hit attraction for young and old alike!

IMPORTANT NOTE

Concern over the spread of the Coronavirus is causing the cancellation or postponement of multiple air shows. Please contact air show sponsors and operators about the current status of their show.
