Hold onto those hats and get ready to FEEL THE NOISE with the return of the Vero Beach Air Show! Tickets are on sale NOW!
Scheduled for April 21-22, 2018 the Vero Beach Air Show brings with it a dizzying array of heart-stopping, jaw-dropping excitement! This unique event comes to town every two years at the Vero Beach Regional Airport, attracting large crowds and giving a huge boost to the economy of Indian River County.
Soar to the edge of imagination as the highly-skilled pilots of the U.S. Navy's elite Blue Angels squadron brave the wild blue yonder.
It's been nearly four years since the Blue Angels visited Vero Beach, FL. In 2016, the group announced the cancellation of their flight demonstration at the Vero Beach Airshow due to the death of Blue Angel #6, Captain Jeff Kuss. Many stood in solidarity as they paid their respects for the loss of a true champion.
The show includes additional performances by Rob Holland Airshows, Dan Buchanan Airshows, Geico Skytypers, Bill Stein Airshows, Prowlers of the Pacific and Team Fastrax. So buckle-up and get those tickets now at eventbrite.com. Click on the browse events page and search for 2018 Vero Beach Air Show to explore ticket options.
"The Vero Air Show is not just for thrills," explains Marty Zickert, the Blue Angels Liason for the 2018 Vero Beach Air Show and a Past President of the Veterans Council of Indian River County, "proceeds benefit hometown charities like the Veterans Council of Indian River County and three local Exchange Clubs."
"All donations to the Veterans Council stay in the county to help the veterans that live here," he said, "We assist them helping them find employment, housing, lending emergency financial assistance and providing free transportation to the VA Hospital in West Palm Beach... When we help the veterans in our community, our community becomes stronger and a better place for all of us to live."
Laurie Collings, Past President of the Exchange Club of the Treasure Coast, is also deeply appreciative that the Air Show supports the Exchange Club mission of funding programs that focus on the prevention of child abuse exclusively in Indian River County.
"An added benefit," Collings states ".... this event is an excellent educational event that exposes the public to opportunity in the military, the aviation industry, airplanes and technology that they may not know otherwise."
