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.
This upcoming Members Meeting will again take as to one of the furthest corners of planet Earth. All the way to Thailand in fact! Around a year ago, our fellow member Paul Spiteri Lucas, visited this place, and inevitably he went looking around for some air bases, aviation museums and air display events (which in this part of the world, are called Annual Children's Day). The 3 main air bases visited were, the : Royal Thai Air Force main air base in Bangkok - Don Mueng, The Royal Thai Police Main Base in Bangkok - Rham Intra, and The Royal Thai Navy Base in Pattaya - U-Tapoa
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.
