Yeovilton Air Day 2018

Air Day 2017

Saturday 7th July

The annual Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton International Air Day in Somerset will take place on Saturday 7 July 2018.  Up to 40,000 visitors are expected to visit the Royal Navy’s premier public event at the spiritual home of the Fleet Air Arm.

RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day will demonstrate the Maritime Capability and Air Power not only from the Royal Navy but also our sister services – the British Army and the Royal Air Force in their centenary year – and our NATO and European allies.  Our aim is to display, either flying or static, the world’s most capable pilots and their aircraft.  It is a fantastic opportunity to see some outstanding equipment and meet our professional personnel in a family-friendly environment.

Alongside the magnificent five hour flying display there will also be a huge array of ground attractions, from engineering fairs to the latest defence technology exhibitions, Service displays, trade stalls and arena displays. For the thrill seekers there will be simulators, fairground rides and helicopter pleasure flights to enjoy.

We look forward to welcoming you onboard at the Royal Naval International Air Day on Saturday 7 July.

display aircraft

The Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm has a distinguished history spanning over 100 years. This is destined to continue as the Royal Navy prepares for a new era in Carrier Strike capability with HMS Queen Elizabeth currently undertaking sea trials and the imminent arrival of the first operational F-35B Lightning II squadron to the UK.

RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day will demonstrate the Maritime Capability and Air Power not only from the Royal Navy but also our sister services – the British Army and the Royal Air Force in their centenary year – and our NATO and European allies. 

Our aim is to display some of the world’s most capable pilots and their aircraft during the amazing five hour flying display. On the ground, there will be plenty of opportunities to see some of this outstanding equipment up close and meet our professional personnel in a family-friendly environment.
