Australian International Airshow is also called the Avalon Airshow, which happens at the Avalon airport. During this event, you can see all the exciting aerial displays of different aircrafts.

In 1957, G.J. Churcher OAM, who is the head of Port Melbourne Government Aircraft Factory decided to launch the first aircraft exhibit for the employees. It allowed the factory workers to see the finished version of their effort.

The first airshow happened during 1988. This was the first major airshow held at the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in Sydney. The event was organized to celebrate the Australian Bicentenary. After the success of the affair, an Avalon Airshow had begun commercially. Public viewing was then allowed. There was also an Official Delegations Lounge exclusively made for delegations who attended the show.

The industry-only trade sessions are limited only to the government and defense professionals, as well as the accredited industries and trade visitors. Flying demonstrations was from 9am to 5pm. No entry was permitted for those people below 16 years old. Corporate identification, business card and letter of authority are required for a complete registration. Public was not allowed during this event. However, there was also a designated date and time open for public viewing, usually by Friday afternoon ad weekends.

From the first 1988 Airshow and up to present, this entertainment program continually brings more scenes that are exciting for both on the ground and air. Different aircraft profiles can be seen. Never-before-seen actions will be performed, highlighting air superiority and great flying displays.
