Day (2).png


What Aircraft will be there? See here for an idea of the aircraft which will feature

How do I get there? Wings has a comprehensive Traffic Management Plan. Driving routes getting to Hood Aerodrome from both North and South will be clearly sign posted from both directions. As there will be considerably more traffic in both directions please allow plenty of time to get into Hood Aerodrome. After the Saturday Night Show expect delays on exiting the car parks and heading home.

How is each day different? Visit each daily page for an explanation of how each day is different. Friday; Saturday; Sunday. Not sure when to come? Why not get a 3 Day Pass.

What does a silver pass get me? Visit here for the benefits of a silver pass

What does a gold pass get me? Visit here for the benefits of a gold pass

Why do I have to pay adult price for a child in the silver / gold areas? As these areas require us to hire equipment and provide catering the decision has been made that each seat is valued at this price to allow us to cover the costs. Remember that children 4 and under are free.

Is car parking free? Yes. Note you will need to walk a little way to get into the Aerodrome. For a gold coin donation you can catch a shuttle bus from the car park into the Aerodrome.

Can I bring my dog? No, unless it is a service dog. You must not leave your dog in your car either. We will have security and volunteers who will be checking cars to make sure there are no dogs left in cars. If we find a dog in a car we will gain access to the car and remove the dog.

Can I smoke? There is absolutely no smoking allowed in the car park. Smoking is not allowed in the car park because it is difficult to get fire trucks in there if we need to, plus the heat of the cars adds to fire risk. Smoking is permitted inside the Aerodrome as fire trucks have easy access if needed. Please be considerate of others around you. Make sure you extingish your cigatrette thoroughly and dispose in one of the bins provided.

What happens if the event / any of the days are cancelled? Visit here for our ticket cancellation details

Will there be gate sales? Are they more expenseive? At this stage there are gate sales on all GA ticket types on Saturday and Sunday, depending on capacity this may change as we get closer to the Air Festival, we will communicate this. There are no gate sales for Silver or Gold passes. Gate sales incur an additional $5 on top of all GA ticket prices , we strongly encourage you to pre purchase your ticket.
