2023 Global Airshow Calendar

Our 2023 airshow calendar lists most significant air displays scheduled to be held around the world in 2023. We have attempted to list almost every show that features a major aerobatic team or a multi-item flying display, at which aviation is the primary attraction at the event. Military exercises, spotter days, air races and aerobatic competitions are not generally included unless they are of substantial importance and are open to the public. The largest shows (based on reputation, crowd size and industry importance) are highlighted in bold. We have also marked several must-attend enthusiast-friendly events with a gold star (⭐).

We are not affiliated with the events on this calendar. Airshow schedules are both extensive and fluid, so please use this page only as a guide: confirm all information via an event’s official website before making plans to attend. This page recieved its last substantial update on the 25th January 2022 and while we will attempt to make further updates on occasion, do not consider this calendar to be either exhaustive nor up-to-date. Please also note that, as European (especially French) events and their headliners are often confirmed at much shorter notice than the North American counterparts, the schedule will appear incomplete at this stage. If you know of any missing events or errors, please contact us.
