After the postponement and then cancellation of Wings Over Illawarra 2020 due to the global health crisis, we are now forging ahead with Wings Over Illawarra 2021 and the dates have been set for the 27th and 28th November 2021.

With Australia doing so much better than most countries in stamping out the Coronavirus threat, and vaccines expected to be available in the first half of 2021, we are extremely confident that we will be able to stage a great event in November 2021.

2021 is also the centenary year for the Royal Australian Air Force and Wings Over Illawarra 2021 will be celebrating that milestone with the Australian Defence Force, and we are looking forward to presenting a magnificent flying display to mark the occasion.

Along with a flying display second to none, Wings Over Illawarra 2021 will also feature some great new attractions which will include:

School & Careers Open Day – Friday 26th November.
A major aim of Wings Over Illawarra has always been to inspire younger Australians to consider careers in the aviation industry, and the School & Careers Open Day will provide a unique opportunity for students from across NSW and Australia to access information on aviation career opportunities from a plethora of aviation exhibitors, from commercial and defence aviation, government regulators and industry organisations.

The NSW Drone Expo
Wings Over Illawarra, has partnered with the Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS), to present the inaugural NSW Drone Expo. The expo will be an annual showcase of the latest and greatest in drone UAV technology along with some amazing flying demonstrations, including the Australian Defence Force drone racing teams.

Oz Flight Sim Expo
The annual expo is now part of the Wings Over Illawarra Airshow. The Oz Flight Sim Expo is the only flight simulation event in Australia, and offers flight simulation enthusiasts of all ages the perfect opportunity to get up close with some of the most impressive displays and product demonstrations.
