A personal message by Mike Higgins, Organiser, Jersey International Air Display
Thank you for showing your interest in the Jersey International Air Display and for visiting this official website.
Over the following pages we will be showcasing some of the activities taking place as part of this year’s air display. I am pleased to once again be leading the organising team in 2017 and can promise, as always, that it’ll be an afternoon of aeronautical excellence not to be missed.
One of my principle roles is to source participating aircraft, a task that can take many months and sometimes years to secure. Coupled with the fact that many of our visiting aircraft are still actively involved in commercial or military activity and can often be called upon at the last minute can make it very difficult (not to mention frustrating) for us to secure a final programme until the very last moment. However, rest assured that once activities and participating aircraft have been confirmed then we will post all the details on this website as well as via our social media outlets, such as Facebook and Twitter.
I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the ‘behind the scenes’ team for their invaluable support and to express in turn our thanks and gratitude to the many companies and individuals for their financial support in helping to stage this year’s display - in particular the Economic Development Department and Ports of Jersey – your continuing support, commitment and enthusiasm to the future success of the event is much appreciated.
