Tickets are now on sale for the family area, comfort seating and car parking for this year - tickets@tsia.scot - and premium tier tickets will be going on sale soon.

There are apparently no plans for a static this year, but it looks like there will be displays on both Saturday and Sunday - though whether they are repeat displays or whether there are due to be different aircraft flying on different days is not yet clear. I'd have to check my receipts from last year, but I think the ticket prices for the family area may have gone up a little (perhaps £5-10?) and with the possibility of different flying on Saturday/Sunday it could work out quite a bit more expensive for access to the family area this time around (I have four children, so a ticket for the family area for both days would be around £115).

I'd hope the organisers have adjusted their plans for premium tickets from last year and are able to offer things like the night shoot at Prestwick separately, rather than included in the top-end package. Last year's night shoot was good, but it would have been far more attractive if it had been available for £40-50 as a separate option rather than wrapped into the £100 Ultimate pass.

The other small frustration is that there are no announcements for participants to go along with the tickets going on sale. Hopefully something will be announced soon...

...and the premium tickets are up, rebranded as "Patron's Tickets". £57.42 for one day (either Saturday or Sunday) or £93.64 for the weekend, and included for those prices are:

- Entry to premium ticket areas
- Best promenade and Low Green photography areas
- Dedicated Catering & Welfare Facilities
- Breakfast Rolls until 11:30
- Buffet Lunch
- High Tea
- Pilot / crews meet and greet
- Bespoke Entertainment
- Patron’s Marquee
- Dedicated viewing area
- Dedicated pay bar
- Parking for one vehicle


The full weekend ticket also gets you:

- Induction onto TSIA Website Patrons Roll of Honour
- TSIA Souvenir programme
- TSIA Patrons Badge


All of these tickets are for 18+ (I'm assuming because of licensing regulations for the bar etc.) so one to bear in mind for potential buyers with younger family. Still no word on display lineup, or whether there will be any kind of photoshoot as with last year.

Bit of a shame about there not Likely to be a Static again this Year, if that's the case looks like Saturday only again for me this Year.

I'm waiting to hear whether there will be much in the way of repeat displays before pulling the trigger on a ticket. If they're going to have two full flying displays with different lineups on both days then I'd be interested, but I'm not sure whether they will be able to secure the participation to manage that and I'm expecting at least some repetition over the weekend. The latest comment on their Facebook suggests they'll be making some announcement about participants soon so we shall see...
