Air Show Atlantic Seeking a New Home for 2018 - Stay Tuned!

The Air Show Organizing Team had planned to "come home" to 12 Wing Shearwater for 2018. We were in discussions with the Wing and it was looking really good. However, the operational tempo, the tasks set for the Wing by the Air Force, are so challenging that they simply could not dedicate the personnel required to support hosting an Air Show in 2018. Many Wing staff would have to contribute to the planning and execution phases of an Air Show many months in advance. The Air Traffic Control, Fire, Operations and Security commitments alone are considerable. We were sorry to lose the opportunity for this year, but they say that an Air Show at Shearwater in the future is something the Air Force desires too.

So now we are actively seeking a home for 2018. We have narrowed the possibilities down and are in discussions with potential host sites. We hope to have an announcement by December. Stay tuned and if you are not an Air Show Insider yet, join and be among the first to know when we share our good news.

Thank you for your patience!
