Vaasa is a very historical place for Finnish Aviation history.

The first aircraft

The first aircraft of the Finnish Air Force, Thulin typ D reconnaissance plane, arrived at Vaasa, Finland on 6th of March 1918. The date has since been celebrated as the founding date of the Finnish Air Force.

40 years since the last show

In 2024, it will be 40 years since the previous air show was organized in Vaasa, hence there’s a good momentum for the airshow.

The main airshow of Finland rotates between cities

Latest annual main airshows were in Turku 2023, in Pori 2022 and in Helsinki, Kaivopuisto 2021. All were very successful.
