Historical

The Aeroclub Valais has been involved since a long time in the organization of Air Shows. Already in 1982, 1986, 1989, 1997 and 2011 have planes filled the skies above Sion much to the pleasure of its spectators.

The Air Shows are not a recent phenomena. On the 2 October 1910, in Avenches was held the first aeronautical Air Show in Switzerland with 3 Pilots: Failloubaz, Grandjean, and Cailler. Its on the 11 May 1913 that the first aviation day was held in Sion. It was followed in August 1919 and 1920 by the Aviation days in Montana. For larger Air Shows we must wait until 1966 where the first Air Show was held followed by the editions in 1982, 1986, 1989, 1997 (with 100’000 paying spectators), a slighltly smaller edition in 2001 and an Air Show in 2011.

With the passion and enthusiasm of the organizing committee, under the responsibility of the Association Sion Airshow and their partners, the show will be amazing.
