LIKE NO SHOW YOU’VE EVER SEEN
The world’s greatest pilots are returning to Iowa! Hosted at the Ankeny Regional Airport, the Central Iowa Airshow is the the midwest's premier family aviation event, combining the world’s greatest aerial performers and their eye popping, jaw dropping, heart stopping performances with family fun activities and community engagement to promote aviation. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to help save the Iowa Aviation Heritage Museum. With more than 10 performers and 3 separate shows, the Central Iowa Airshow is one of the midwest's largest and most diverse aviation events!
FEATURING "THE IMMORTALS”
Skip Stewart squares off with Kyle Franklin and the Aftershock Jet Truck in a modern
dog-fight like you’ve never seen before. This choreographed act is considered one of the most dangerous and challenging being performed today - showcasing the true skill, precision, and endurance of the world’s most prolific and awarded pilots.
NIGHT AIRSHOW + MUSIC FESTIVAL
Close out your summer on a high note with the only night airshow + music festival in the world! We’ll be featuring a select group of our airshow performers throughout the evening with live music performances on a massive stage - right in the middle of the airfield! With plenty of space to run around and dance, your kids will love it too!
This year’s show features all your favorite country and classic rock hits performed by some of Florida’s hottest bands - Hayfire and Hypersona. We’re proud to announce that after a huge reaction from our families at Fly Ottumwa - the Leonard Brothers Band will be returning to Iowa for a repeat performance! A featured performer at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Lines, and Universal Studios, the family friendly Leonard Brothers Band will have you and your kids dancing the night away!
SAVE OUR MUSEUM!
DID YOU KNOW THAT ANKENY IS HOME TO ONE OF IOWA’S MOST UNIQUE AVIATION MUSEUMS?
THE IOWA AVIATION HERITAGE MUSUEM IS DEDICATED TO RESTORING AND PRESERVING WWII, ANTIQUE, AND RARE AIRCRAFT. HOWEVER, THE MUSEUM IS IN CRITICAL NEED OF YOUR SUPPORT. WE ARE PROUD TO DONATE A PORTION OF ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SHOW TO THE MUSEUM. WE HOPE THIS SHOW WILL CONNECT OTHER AVIATION ENTHUSIASTS AND HISTORIANS TO THE MUSUEM AND GROW THEIR SUPPORT AND RESOURCES TO INSURE THAT THIS IMPORTANT PART OF AMERICAN HISTORY IS NEVER LOST.
Our pilots represent an elite class of aviation and stunt professionals who have dedicated their lives to mastering the sky. You’ll see, hear, and experience stunts and synchronized maneuvers that you never thought were possible by an aircraft. More performances will be announced soon!
Don’t miss out on the incredible Miniature Jamboree! More than 200 pilots from around North America will be joining us for this celebration of aviation heritage! Featuring amazing miniature propeller planes and jets, you'll see some of the finest scale aircraft in the world flying at more than 200 miles per hour! This display will captivate the passion and imagination of aviation enthusiasts of all ages. Spectator details coming soon.
