The World's Greatest Airshow!

The Royal International Air Tattoo will return in 2022 from 15-17 July and we are planning for it to be similar in scale to the 2019 airshow. Friday will again be the preview day with a 4 hour flying display whilst Saturday and Sunday will both be full show days with over seven hours of thrilling flying displays each day. Tickets are on sale HERE.

RIAT 2022 will see us celebrating the United States Air Force's 75th Anniversary in spectacular style. In addition, our operational theme for next year will be 'Training the Next Generation Air Force' and we hope to see many exciting aircraft from around the world on display. Many of the world's Air Arms put the Royal International Air Tattoo at the top of their list when it comes to deciding where to demonstrate their aircraft's capabilities and the professionalism of their aircrew. We are looking forward to welcoming old and new friends to take part in our return in 2022.

In 2019, 245 exciting aircraft from 39 air arms representing 25 nations from around the globe touched down at RAF Fairford for the Air Tattoo, making it the best place to view an incredible range of military fixed wing and rotary aircraft.

For a taste of the sort of aircraft you might expect to see in 2022, view our extensive participation lists from previous Air Tattoos HERE.

Future dates:

2022 - 15, 16, 17 July
2023 - 14, 15, 16 July
2024 - 19, 20, 21 July
2025 - 18, 19, 20 July
