United Kingdom Airshow Association (UKAA)

Hello All,

Varren and I, both being from the UK would love to see some more British Airshows. As much as the shows run by Crow and Danny are great, they are infrequently on UK maps. Therefore we have started UKAA. UKAA's aim is to be just as successful as YS Airshows but to give our airshows a more British feel. We look forward to hopefully working closely with YS Airshows to make our future airshows the best they can be.

Our first airshow is coming soon, anyone can come and participate but we are particularly looking for demos such as Typhoons, Red Arrows, Tornados and Harriers. Get practising guys and help us make the first UKAA airshow amazing.

Thank you everyone and I hope you enjoy UKAA's airshows in the future.

TB1.

Awesome logo and post :P YSAA will disband after NAS Pensacola and form into this. Looking forward to the years of making great BRITISH airshows!

P.S I am going to buy a .com address tomorrow for the site.

YSAS has run several air shows based in UK locations such as Gatwick and Fairford. There was also plan for one to be held in Duxford. Unfortunately with the lack of more maps located in UK, the shows have been limited to those few. We've tried to expand to worldwide locations as a result. I'm glad to see that you guys want to take on virtual air shows located in UK and especially the fact that you want to give them a British flavor. I wish you guys luck and hopefully VNAF will be able to attend some of your shows as well. It's always good to see more air shows on the horizon :D

Yes, there is a RAF Fairford map. Couple of YS RIATs have been held there.

Thanks for all the great responses guys, I'm looking forward to seeing all our display teams there. And yes, I think our version of RIAT is a great place to start. I'll look into it, but as you all know, Varren and I are running our own airshows this summer which means that realistically, our first airshow won't be until winter.

Hey guys,

Good luck on your association, TB1 I'm sorry I'm just letting you know that I can't narrate at the Airshow on my birthday July 7th, sorry man.

Also I am going to PM you something TB1.

Regards,

About the RIAT specifically, I would like to add that given the gigantic nature of the Tattoo, this one should be like one BIG event :) well planned, lots of teams and solos, flypasts, posters, maybe promo vids and all that stuff to make it BIG like the real deal.

So what do you say? - RIAT 2012 hosted by UKAA sometime in late Autumn or early Winter? (I know its quite a bit off the real dates but its the best we can do)

Well I agree with Kilo completely, meaning we have to allocate a suitable amount of time to properly plan and organise it so yes it will be in 2012, but probably around November/December.
