Thank you so much in advance for your kind generosity – the airshow would not be possible without you.

The event would not be possible without our partners, sponsors, local and regional businesses and charities who have all given their time, expertise and funding to the event. This year we’ve found terrific support from a host of local businesses whom, in recognising the economic and tourism benefit of the event, have come forward in support of the English Riviera Airshow.

You too can support the English Riviera Airshow by making a donation. Your contribution will help to secure the future of the Bay’s most spectacular event. Every penny donated will go directly to funding the fantastic flying, ground and on the water displays, ensuring we all can enjoy the English Riviera Airshow year on year.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the English Riviera Airshow, we look forward to working with you in 2025!
