Scottish International Airshow

The Scottish International Airshow

The next show will be in Ayr in 2020, probably early September (TBC)

The Swiss F/A 18. One of the highlights of the 2018 show

The local authority in Ayr can only sponsor the show on alternate years, the next in 2020. It was hoped that an alternative venue, possibly Kirkcaldy, would hold the show in 2019 but it has not been possible to agree the arrangements. The 2019 show is therefore not being held but the TSIA say they will be back in Ayr in 2020 'bigger and better' than before, with a three-day Friday-to-Sunday show, probably in early September.


An earlier airshow in Ayrshire closed in the early 1990's but, following the closure of the show at Leuchars in 2013, flying returned to the area in 2014 as ‘The Scottish Airshow’.

The first dusk flying was in 2016, followed by a full day's flying on the Saturday. In 2017 the show lost its flying after dark but stretched to a two-day Saturday and Sunday show. The 2019 show lost its Ayr funding and another venue was sought but not found. The show is due back at Ayr in 2020.
