When is the Atlantic City Airshow?

The Atlantic City Airshow will be taking off around 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2022.

If you're not sure that you will be able to catch the performance on the 24th, Meet AC and airshow organizers say there will be a practice day on Tuesday, Aug. 23 starting around 11 a.m., where you may be able to catch some performers getting ready.

This practice day is subject to change without notice.

Which performers are taking to the sky for the 2022 AC Airshow?

Airshow favorites the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and U.S. Army Golden Knights will be back to thrill sky gazers for the 2022 show, organizers said.

Others high-flyers taking part include the Full Throttle Formation Team, Jim Beasley P-51 Mustang, Chris Thomas Airshows and U.S. Navy’s F/A-18 Super Hornet “Rhino” East Coast Demo Team.

Organizers have bios available on the performers.

What should I bring/prepare beforehand?

A pre-flight checklist is available on the AC Airshow website which highlights the best ways to create the ultimate viewing experience.

Meet AC recommends wearing lighter clothing if the weather is hot, bringing sunscreen, chairs, blankets and umbrellas, especially if you are planning to enjoy the show from the beach along the Atlantic Ocean. Be sure to pop on some sunglasses while you are looking to the sky.

Remember a portable radio - WPG Talk Radio 95.5 FM and 1450 AM will be providing all of the commentary for spectators watching the show.

Where can I see the show?

You can enjoy a great view of the show from a number of different locations in Atlantic City.

You can watch the airshow from any of the beaches or on the boardwalk for free in AC. Some limited handicap-accessible viewing space is available for spectators at Montpelier Avenue and Boardwalk Pavilion.

Looking to catch some of the action, but not be in the thick of it? People also flock to Ventnor, Margate and Brigantine beaches as the performers tend to soar beyond just AC's skies.

Looking to enjoy the show from the water? You're also able to catch a glimpse of all the in-air action off-shore in Atlantic City. Airshow organizers remind boaters that there will be a "no-boat zone" prohibiting boaters from getting too close to the beach.

How can I get to the event, where can I park?

If you are driving down the shore, parking for the event is available throughout Atlantic City. See the website's parking information page to view a complete parking map as well as get pricing.

You will also be able to head down to AC using public transit. NJ Transit is offering rail service on its Atlantic City Rail Line and bus service.

When in AC, you can catch a Jitney to get close to the action.
