Tickets for the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford are selling fast with less than 45 days to go.

RIAT is now sold out for Saturday, 15 July, but tickets are still available for Friday and Sunday, 14 and 16 July.

Last year saw the event return following a two-year hiatus due to covid, with over 250 aircraft participating across the weekend. 

Organisers say July’s show is set to be another exciting instalment, with a variety of aircraft already being unveiled as participants such as the Red Arrows, historic Jet ME262 which is making a UK airshow debut and the Spanish Harrier. 

Riat is hosted by Royal Air Force Charitable Enterprises. CEO Paul Atherton said: “I’m absolutely thrilled that the public continue to support RIAT, especially during the current economic challenges we are all facing. 

“This year promises to be yet another fantastic occasion drawing participants from around the world and demonstrating what a massive event RIAT continues to be.”

On the ground there will also be a lot to see, especially for youngsters who are curious about aviation, with the event’s Techno Zone. 

In this area industry leaders will bring interactive tech exhibits to the show to capture the imagination of the aviators of tomorrow. 

All of the proceeds raised by RIAT are donated to the show’s parent charity, the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust, who have a mission to inspire the next generation of aviators and STEM leaders. 

Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Director Justine Morton said: “Every year we are overwhelmed with the amount of young people who come to the show. 

“Ensuring that while they’re here, they’re inspired by what they see is a key aim of the charity and to encourage more young people to come, we offer free entry and travel to the show. 

“We are really looking forward to this year’s event and hope to see plenty of people on the airfield next month.”
