What to expect

Returning to the English Riviera for a fourth consecutive year, a weekend of spectacular air displays, activities and exhibitions guaranteed to delight all ages. The event is free to attend.

Visitors to the Torbay Airshow can expect a jam-packed schedule of breath-taking aircraft over two days.

Using the Bay’s stunning natural amphitheatre, the event is the RAF’s first display of the summer flying season and is well supported by their top teams including the Red Arrows, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Eurofighter Typhoon jet, plus many more.

As well as entertainment in the skies, the event village on the picturesque Paignton Green will be host to a range of entertainment, exhibitions, activities and fairground rides. Food and drink stalls will also be available.

More details about the aircraft and entertainment schedules will be announced at a later date on the Torbay Airshow website. Visitors should bear in mind that the event is subject to change, depending on weather conditions. The flying programme will start at around 14:00 and finish at 17:00.
