General Admission

General Admission includes:


  • Access to the showground from 7:30am to 6:30pm
  • Under 18s go free!
  • Flying display 11am - 3pm - aircraft arrivals either side of this
  • Green Zone closed as aircraft are still being positioned

The Air Tattoo on Friday is far more than a 4 hour flying display. In 2017, in addition to the flying display the airfield was active from 7.30am with 21 arrivals and 4 departures (including the F-22 and Thunderbirds) prior to the start of the flying display and then there were another 9 arrivals and 13 departures up until 6.30pm. This means that the whole time the airfield is open to the public there is aircraft activity and we anticipate the same in 2019 (as this was also the case in 2016 and 2015).
