The airshow is a family event and aimed at entertaining young and old by sharing the excitement of flying with those who live life on the ground.

This year the airshow will start at 13:00 and end in the dark with a night manoeuvre by the Harvard Flying Lions, followed by a spectacular fireworks display.

The airshow aims to please all spectators by providing a large variety of displays, which will include skydiving, extreme aerobatics, formation aerobatics, the fastest and slowest aeroplanes, aeroplane and car races, helicopter and car races, radio controlled aircraft displays, jets and much, much more!

There’ll be coloured daylight firework shows and helicopter and hot air balloon rides.

Look forward to a large array of food vendors while the kiddies’ corner will keep the small ones occupied. The Rotary Beer Garden will serve adults, with the proceeds pledged to local charities.

The Middelburg Aero Club will again reach out to disadvantaged groups and charities by taking them on free flights. The Charity Day is unfortunately by invite only.

The Middelburg Aero Club invites the people of Middelburg, and it’s surrounding towns, to bring their friends and their whole family, and enjoy the heart-stopping action.
Just bring along the camping chairs, gazebos and enjoy the food and drinks provided by the vendors.
