RAF Red Arrows 2023 airshow schedule

The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, has released its 2023 domestic display schedule. This year, the team will display with eight jets, one more than last season but still fewer than usual. Nine aircraft will be available for flypasts at national events.

According to the team’s Officer Commanding, Sqn. Ldr. Adam Collins, the number of new pilots is capped at three per year to allow for proper supervision during pre-season training. As the Red Arrows flew with just seven aircraft in 2022, due to two pilots being dismissed for misconduct during pre-season training, this has limited the team to eight jets this season. They intend to increase to nine aircraft for 2024 and beyond.

Displays at full airshows are denoted in bold, while displays at smaller or non-aviation events are in regular text. This is Flight understands that international events, including shows in France and Eastern Europe, will be added at a later date.
