RAF Falcons Parachute Display team confirmed for 2024 airshow

Airshow RAF falcons

South Ayrshire Council is delighted to announce that the RAF Falcons Parachute display team will appear at this year's International Ayr Show - Festival of Flight.

The Falcons are the UK's premier military parachute display team - the only centrally funded, professional, display team of this kind in the UK. 

Based at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, the team display at venues all over Britain and Europe throughout the year. The team have set records and introduced many exciting innovations into formation skydiving.

Get set to witness their exciting free fall display, which includes advanced manoeuvres, falling at speeds of up to 120mph!  Not to mention their famous 'hybrid' display, which includes the Heart and Crisscross Carousel, something really special that always manages to captivate spectators.

CEO of theSKYLAB, Dr Geoff Coxon, said: "The RAF Falcons are a fantastic addition to our airshow this year. Not only will they be dropping in to see us on both the Friday and the Saturday, they will also show how important STEM is within their display and what they do, both at the Low Green and on the Friday and at the Prestwick Airport STEM week."

South Ayrshire Council's Director of Communities and Transformation, Jane Bradley, said: "It's fantastic that the RAF Falcons will display on both days of the festival this year.  The team are well known for their impressive, daring performances, so I'm sure they will be a real crowd pleaser."

The International Ayr Show - Festival of Flight will be held at Ayr shore front on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 September.
