Not all of the money raised through the activities of the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises (RAFCTE) is gifted to the Trust. The RAFCTE's Board of Directors wish to create a firm financial footing to assure the company's long term future. For this reason, and with the support of the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust, a modest amount is retained each year to protect against unforeseen contingencies.

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Former Formula 1 Racing Driver

“Probably the most complete air show I’ve ever been to!”

Al Worden, Apollo 15 Astronaut

“This is THE best airshow!”

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
