BEST COMEBACK

Florida International Air Show

Familiar sights and sounds returned to Punta Gorda skies last fall after a one-and-a-half-year absence. For more than 30 years, the Florida International Air Show dazzled spectators every February/March. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the all-volunteer, not-for-profit corporation did not produce an air show in 2015. FIAS organizers regrouped, strategized and took a risk in moving the show to October. The result was a new kind of air show, featuring civilian air teams, a military presence and displays and activities for spectators to enjoy. Due to its success, the Florida International Air Show returns to the Punta Gorda Airport this October 13.
