EVENT DESCRIPTION

Event Overview:

The 2015 Chicago Air & Water Show welcomes the acclaimed U.S. Navy Blue Angels to headline this year’s event. The event is the oldest and largest free air exhibition of its kind in the United States and continues to be one of the city’s most anticipated summer events. Drawing an average crowd of over 1.7 million people, the show features the precision flying at its finest. The U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights plus the U.S. Navy Leapfrogs are also scheduled to thrill the audience as they plunge from dizzying altitudes to their target at North Avenue Beach. Numerous military and civilian demonstrations round out the program.

This year the Chicago Air and Water Show will thrill in the air and on the water at North Avenue Beach and along Chicago’s magnificent lakefront on Lake Michigan. With Chicago's Skyline as a backdrop, audience numbers reach 2.2 million annually making the Chicago Air & Water Show the largest FREE admission air and water exhibition of its kind in the United States. Over the years the show has featured some of the top civilian and military pilots and aircraft.

The Chicago Air & Water Show is conducted in an extremely safe and conscientious way. Safety precautions are taken at all times before, during and after the show. Plans take off and land at the Gary International Airport in Gary, Indiana. All pilots perform stunts over the water in a set safety area. When a plane does fly over buildings, it is merely doing so in its flight path to return to the show area or the airport.

Organizers work closely with the FAA and various City Departments in a highly proactive manner to assure the safety of the all involved. All pilots and air personnel must attend morning meetings each day before flying to receive up-to-date information about weather and pertinent details to assure safe flights. Additionally, the event employs its own air traffic controller who oversees the downtown air space during show hours.
