2021 is 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, the airshow also entertains with free carnival rides for the kids, food trucks galore, static aircraft displays, roving entertainment, classic car exhibits and helicopter joy flights, you can also access the HARS Aviation Museum to get up close with some spectacular vintage aircraft.

Wings Over Illawarra 2021 will also feature some great new attractions which will include:

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 Sim Flight Expo/The Australian Defence Force VR Simulator Experience 

Due to border closures and the subsequent inability of exhibitors to attend the scheduled Oz Flight SIM Expo, we have refocussed this feature in 2021 as an Australian Defence Force Simulator experience. The feature will showcase some of the STEM programs of the Navy and Army and will be a fantastic immersive experience for all ages.

School & Careers Open Day – Postponed
Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the Schools & Careers Day this year due to the NSW Department of Education restrictions around excursions.  We will be bringing you a bigger and better Schools & Careers Day in 2022 on Friday 11 November so watch this space!
