The British Air Display Association was formed in April 2011 following a number of successful informal meetings by organisers, pilots and others associated with air displays. These meetings identified a need to have an organisation to encourage, promote and advance Safety and Standards in British air displays whilst encouraging open discussion on all aspects of staging an airshow, from the smallest, involving a couple of flying displays, to the largest with international following.

Organising an airshow is more than just asking a few pilots to come along and fly their aircraft and the members of BADA represent every aspect of the air display community, from organisers and pilots to commentators and showground contractors.

If you would like to know more about the organisation of an air show or are looking to book a flying display for your event please contact us.
