The Aeroflight database of Airshows is principally aimed at aviation enthusiasts, historians and photographers.

For this survey, an air show is taken to be any public or non-public event intended for the display of flying skills and aircraft. However, we are also including temporary static exhibitions of aircraft for public or trade attendance. Thus included are: air shows, air rallies, fly-ins, family day events, air races and trade shows that feature actual aircraft.

We intend to eventually list all such events worldwide since the first air meeting in around 1908. You are welcome to submit corrections and details of addition events in spreadsheet or tabular format that can be imported into Excel.
