The time is here. Planes to Colour the Skies - Only Airshow in Kwazulu Natal !

The highly anticipated Newcastle Airshow will take place on Saturday, June 3 at the Newcastle Airport.

The organizers of the event, Champ Marketing and Events, are very proud of the Airshow and its growth over the past eight years.

The community will be able to see the new construction which is taking place at the airport with the Innovation Hub, the new airport building, and they will also be able to experience the smell of jet fuel by the best aerobatic teams in South Africa.

The elite Silver Falcons of the South African Air Force will take to the skies to show the community what they can offer. The Air Force will also show off the Augusta Helicopter at the Airshow. This very special helicopter will also do a display.

Grade 11 learners from Northern KwaZulu-Natal will have the opportunity to sit down with pilots on Saturday morning. Civil Aviation, Denel and Air Force will educate the Grade 11 pupils on how to become not only pilots, but also part of the aviation world.

The community can look forward to champions like Nigel Hopkins and Neville Ferreira taking to the skies. The Good Year Pitts will entertain the crowd, while Scully Levin and his team will showcase the Harwards. The following planes will also be in action: Extra 330 Sc, Slick 360, Impala, L29, L39, RV Team, Stearman, Glider and Extra 300 LP. Neville Ferreira will compete against a monster from Mercedes Benz during the show. Who will be the Champion?

A first for Newcastle Airshow will be the more or less 10 parachute jumpers. Two of the jumpers will be in a wingsuits and one jumper in an 89 square foot parachute. Corne will display the lovely, extra huge South African flag.

There will be a giant slide for the children to play on while parents enjoy the Treetops Beer garden with an extra special craft tent next to it.

Parents can also ensure their families are well taken care of at the more than 12 food stalls. Stucky Motors and Nissan NTT will showcase the best vehicles in the area; make sure you support the dealerships.

Families can look forward to the annual helicopter flips.

The entrance to the Airshow will remain the same as it has been the last eight years, with no increase: R50 for adults, and R30 for children.
