Tickets to the 2019 Rochester International Airshow are on sale now!

Don't miss your chance to see the USAF Thunderbirds, the exciting F-22 Raptor Tactical Demo, and some of the best airshow pilots and performers in the world.

"Send a Vet" is a new program we are instituting in conjunction with Honor Flight Rochester to get as many Veterans as we can to the Airshow.

When you purchase any type of advanced sale ticket to the 2019 Rochester International Airshow, you will be given an opportunity to buy an additional ticket, or more if you like, that Honor Flight Rochester will use to “ Send a Vet” to the Airshow. It’s a great way to help Vets who otherwise might not be able to attend the show, to have the opportunity.

The Ticket price for this is just $ 20.00 per ticket. The Airshow will furnish Honor Flight Rochester with the "Send a Vet" ticket, and Honor Flight will distribute them to selected Veterans.

It’s a Great Way to Honor our Veterans... and give a little back to them.
