Sadden to hear this news, but have seen the smaller crowds over the past few years. The shows have had great aircraft in attendance but that has gone down over the past 20 years.
From the Valiant Air Command:
“The Board of Director of the Valiant Air Command, Inc., in a meeting 10/15/2019, has voted to postpone our 43rd Space Coast Warbird Airshow to 2021, by a majority vote.
This decision is based on the fact that costs (e.g., fuel, oil, performer appearances, etc.) associated with this event have increasingly become prohibitive for a 100% non-profit, all volunteer based, member-supported organization to take on by ourselves.
Donations and sponsorship for the event from the local community, businesses and municipalities have declined significantly the last 5 years, yet the cost to sponsor an Airshow have increased exponentially.
The Board has, however, decided to restructure and renew our commitment to sponsor a 2021 Space Coast Warbird Airshow with support of the public and our local community.
We will be announcing shortly new fundraising efforts to insure the continued successful growth of the museum and the events we sponsor.
