Event Organised by: Torbay Council
Flying Display Director: TSA Consulting Ltd


Devon’s largest outdoor event, Torbay Airshow has been renamed the English Riviera Airshow as part of a partnership with the English Riviera BID Company. The event hopefully will coincide with the Queen’s Platinum (70th) Jubilee celebrations.

Organised by Torbay Council, the event started in 2016 and has become firmly established as one of the key UK airshows, thanks to back-to-back appearances from the likes of the iconic RAF Red Arrows, RAF Typhoon Display Team and the Tigers Freefall Parachute Display Team.
