Welcome at European Airshow Council

  • The European Airshow Council consists of a group of like-minded people that meet each other annually and understand that everyone involved in Airshows should be striving to achieve standards of excellence in their activities.
  • More than 10 years ago the Chairman started to bring people together and his main objective was to exchange ideas and to provide an opportunity to find a common purpose for people involved in Airshows, “because those who criticise are always on the same side of the (safety) rope”.
  •  “Whenever an accident happens, we (organizers and performers) have had no spokesmen and no forum to defend us or to analyse the situation in an objective way; As a result, a situation can arise when a would-be spokesman, who generally does not know what Airshows are about, will give misleading information to the Media. Don’t we all try to reach high levels of quality in what we do? Aren’t we all afraid that a mistake by one of us could be the end of Airshows? Reducing the risks to zero is, of course, one of the objectives of our professional approach to organising and performing at Airshows, but a zero level of risk is probably not realistic. It is important to understand that an accident should not stop all our efforts to entertain a public that is very interested in aviation.”
  • “We therefore suggest that we, organisers and performers, all have to work together on an international scale with our national military and civil authorities, because we are all in the same boat. How this is organised, with which budget, with which people, with which objectives, are still some of the questions of today”.
