ANNOUNCING THE VALIANT AIR COMMAND'S
There are major changes.
2022 SPACE COAST INTERNATIONAL AIRSHOW
ALL NEW - ALL DIFFERENT
COVID-19 has impacted the whole world in many negative ways and the Valiant Air Command warbird museum, and its annual air show is no exception. The VAC had to cancel the 2020 airshow as the worldwide shutdown took effect. Maintaining our visibility in the air show community, we participated in the limited Cocoa Beach and Sanford Airshows in 2021. The success of these events allowed us to consider a 2022 Airshow.
New Date - New Name
In order for the VAC to continue our honored tradition and bring you a quality air show, we had to change.
We were able to attract the Canadian Snowbirds as our main performers, but the earliest the show could be held is May 2022.*
We set the date and renamed the airshow as the:
Space Coast International Air Show
The administrative and operational responsibilities are now under the conduct of B. Lilley Productions who has responsibility for: ticketing, parking, VIP tents, vendors, port-o-lets, support personnel, performances, and scheduling.
21-22 May 2022
New Operational Model
As in our past airshows, the VAC will need volunteers for the following areas: historians for 26 static aircraft, food service booths, Member/Volunteer Tent, Beer Garden, Ice/Food delivery, and limited golf cart drivers. If you are interested in volunteering, please call 321-268-1941 Ext 4102 before May 7th to be put on the Volunteer List.
Be aware of the following:
- The VAC does not control ticketing. This is an admission by ticket only airshow. Advance tickets can be obtained by visiting the website - spacecoastairshow.org
- VAC MEMBERS showing their badges are admitted free each day through the Member Gate only. New or renewing members can sign up and pay at the gate. All others must have purchased tickets in advance or may purchase tickets for entrance at the gate.
- VAC Members must obtain wristbands when checking in at the Member Gate each day for access to the VAC Members Only Tent.
- VAC Volunteers will be assigned a parking site and transported to work stations. More information on this will be sent soon. VIP and other Parking may be available for purchase on the website and not the VAC as in previous years.
* Canadian Forces Snowbirds to be replaced by U.S. Navy fighter jets in Titusville air show.
The aerobatic lineup includes the U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor Demo Team; an Army Aviation Heritage Foundation attack-helicopter demonstration; and Valiant Air Command's Tico Belle, a Douglas C-47 Skytrain that dropped paratroopers over Normandy on D-Day.

Valiant Air Command sets date, announces headline performers for 2019 Space Coast Warbird Airshow
Fresh on the heels of an exciting and successful 2018 Space Coast Warbird Airshow, Valiant Air Command's Airshow Director Bob Boswell has announced the date and the headline performers for next year's event. The 42nd annual Warbird Airshow will be held March 15, 16 and 17, 2019 at the Space Coast Regional Airport
. The exciting and popular Friday evening show will again be presented, with illuminated and pyrotechnic equipped airplanes and a massive fireworks display.
We strive to provide a valuable event for the community that is a family-friendly show with military static displays and aerial demonstrations.
Headlining the show, and especially anticipated for Friday's evening events, will be the storied AeroShell Acrobatic Team. Flying WWII vintage T-6/SNJ aircraft, these masters of precision flying will certainly bring the crowd to their feet.
Many other exciting flying acts, and literally dozens of other aircraft ranging from 80 year old fabric biplanes to the most modern warplanes, will appear at the show.
We have a special show planned for Friday with an evening event. Gates open at noon on Friday and 8:30 on Saturday and Sunday to give you a chance visit our many world class warbird aircraft, along with numerous display booths, exhibits, and food concessions.
Performing aircraft will begin late in the afternoon followed by a twilight performance and a night show. After the night airshow portion there will be a blockbuster fireworks display.
Advanced Admission: Adults - $20, Youth (ages 6-12) - $5
Gate Admission: Adults - $30 Youth: $10
Detailed planning for the show has begun. The 42nd Space Coast Warbird Airshow will be a new and impressive event; however, the crowd-friendly aspects of free parking and unrestricted access to over 45 historic military aircraft will continue to guide the planning. The Valiant Air Command will continue to keep you informed as our show takes shape.
2018 Space Coast Warbird Airshow a success for Valiant Air Command, sponsors and community
The Valiant Air Command and the 2018 Space Coast Warbird Airshow wish to thank the many people who contributed to an exciting and rewarding Airshow experience. Our performers and static display personnel were professional and highly motivated. The results were evident all through the weekend.
Our generous private and public sponsors ensured that "the show could go on," and were a wonderful part of the event itself.
Our volunteers, both individual and organizational, were the key to managing the hundreds of myriad details that arise in a large undertaking. Our governmental partners and first responders kept safety and health in everyone's sights, and were always there when needed.
And our media partners, locally based and those from all over the world, "got the word out" and created valuable documentation for future media outreach uses.
The overwhelmingly positive feedback we received this year is a tribute to every one of the hundreds of people involved, and tremendous motivation for us to try even harder for next year's show.
Thanks again, friends
Ron Davis and Laura Kelly
Space Coast Warbird Airshow announces exciting participants
The 2018 Space Coast Warbird Airshow will be held at the Space Coast Regional Airport, Friday April 6 through Sunday April 8. Friday will bring the show's acclaimed afternoon and evening performance, concluded with a massive fireworks display, while the show keeps its traditional daytime schedule on Saturday and Sunday.
Discount advance tickets still on sale
This year's show, which is beginning its fifth decade of excitement and entertainment for Space Coast residents and visitors, will commemorate America's valiant Pacific Theater military aviators and their magnificent airplanes. The show's headliner, the Tora Tora Tora reenactment team, will bring their nine replica Japanese warplanes for their legendary Pearl Harbor attack recreation.
Other World War II aircraft expected for the show include the P-51 Mustang and F4U Corsair fighters, the B-25 Mitchell medium bomber, and, just confirmed, the most evocative of all American warbirds, the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, in fact, the exact B-17 that portrayed the legendary "Memphis Belle" in the 1990 movie! Rides on this classic airplane will be available for purchase.
Lovers of more modern aircraft won't be disappointed, as the US Air Force's Viper East F-16 demonstration shows off the maneuverability and capability of the mighty Fighting Falcon. Visitors can see and tour over fifty vintage and current airplanes, including for the first time the Air Force's massive and capable C-17 Globemaster II. Reenactors will demonstrate vintage military equipment while a carnival awaits kids of all ages.
Advance discount tickets are on sale at the Valiant Air Command website, at local Regions' Bank locations, at the Titusville, Cocoa Beach and Melbourne Chamber of Commerce offices, and at the Patrick AFB ticket office, and of course at the Warbird Museum, at 6600 Tico Road, on the Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville.
