For over 4 decades the International Sanicole Airshow offers an exciting, family-friendly aviation event in all its different dimensions. The show honours a rich aerial heritage while using the power and magic of flight to inspire people young and old. Sanicole does not want to be just another airshow, but the best airshow with thrilling excitement in the air, entertainment on the ground, relaxation at the cocktail bar and fun for kids at one of the many attractions. Sanicole is much smaller than the Paris Air Show, because it’s not a trade fair, but the static display is outright brilliant and the line up of flight demonstrations simply fantastic. Many European airforces showcase their most amazing jets and helicopters, both on the ground and in the sky, including the F16, F35, Sukhoi 27, Apache and the Chinook. And several top stunt teams will show their acrobatic skills of synchronous flying, such as the Belgian Red Devils, the Patrouille Suisse and the Breitling Jet Team. Meet the heroes of the air at the Sanicole Airshow and experience a day of excitement for the entire family! Just hop on our bus, a ticket to the show (day value €35) is already included.

Practical information for participants

Not yet available, check on Wednesday before departure



As with all Expat Clup trips, our program for today is carefully designed with realistic driving times. Today we travel as a group. However,  since there will be thousands of people at this public event, it will not be possible to enter and go over the show grounds as one large group. Of course if you travel alone, we will form smaller groups so you won’t have to spend the day on your own. Once we are there we try to sit/stand together (e.g. by sharing our exact position through WhatsApp).

08h00 – Departure from Place Schuman
10h00 – Arrival Air Show
18h30 – Departure to Brussels
21h00 – Arrival Brussels
