Thank you for visiting our website.
September is always the busiest month for the Malta Aviation Society due to the popular and much anticipated Malta International Airshow. The Society however, is active all through the year. We hold very regular, pre-announced aviation related meetings for our enthusiastic members at our premises. These vary from digital or classic slide / video shows of specific subjects, locations, or occasions of particular interest, to illustrated talks by prominent guest speakers, as well as social activities. We also organise occasional visits to aviation related entities, and to special visiting aircraft at the airport or aircraft carriers at the seaports.
It is with great sadness to announce the loss of Joe Tonna, a fellow aircraft spotter and true friend. The Malta Aviation Society offers its condolences to the Tonna family, especially his brother Peter, who is also not only a fellow spotter but also Joeâ€™s brother. Joe and Peter were a few metres away from each other amongst us MAS members when Joe felt unwell and passed away on the spot as he was about to photograph the Israeli Defence Force C130 which had just landed at Luqa.
RIP Joe. We salute you.
The Malta International Airshow is the result of strong lobbying from the Malta Aviation Society for many years until approval was given to hold the first display in September of 1993. Held over the magnificent Marsamxetto Harbour with its surrounding bastions, the public was entertained to a spectacular aerial display culminating with the Patrouille de France giving their first display in the blue Maltese skies. Another show stopper was the German Air Force 'Luftwaffe' F-4 with its various low passes over the water.
This year's air show will be held on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th September 2017.
