CIVILIAN DISPLAY PERFORMERS

Before you view our list of aircraft attending Airshow 2017, we would invite you to read the following information which outlines the criteria and/or conditions we abide by when seeking civil and military display participants for an event.

We have many queries as to why certain performers are not selected to participate at the Australian International Airshow.

Firstly, we can assure you that all Australian and international acts are considered for each event. When asked why we don’t have a particular performer at the event, one who has perhaps displayed over consecutive shows, the question we have to ask is – should we favour one single performer when there are so many talented performers in Australia.

Over the last few events we have introduced new acts to the flying display programme, performers who have displayed and competed overseas, but have not had the opportunity to display at Australia’s premier air show event, the Australian International Airshow.

The line-up for Airshow 2015 was vastly different to that of recent events and received tremendous feedback from the public for the fresh and varied flying displays. In 2017 we have continued to vary the line-up with the selection of several new performers.

While we would like to select as many performers as possible the reality is that we are constrained by the economic climate, the need to implement variety in the flying display and display time available.

We will continue to select new local and international performers, while at the same time past performers will return to future events.
