At AirVenture Australia 2018 you can look forward to three days of all things aviation! On Thursday and Friday the 20th and 21st of September enthusiasts can join us for interesting and educational seminars, trade displays, and engage with a wide range of exhibitors.


Between 1:00pm and 3:00pm on Friday afternoon you can join us for an exciting interactive sales showcase. More information about this coming soon!

Saturday will see a great day out for the whole family with a high energy airshow over two hours in the afternoon, plus kids entertainment and activities throughout the day.

Throughout the three-day event there will be plenty of food and drink on offer, and the Cessnock region has a host of things to do outside of AirVenture, including wineries, markets, and local attractions.
