The Eurofighter partnership is proud to be part of the Kaivopuisto Air Show 2021, bringing the backbone of European air defence the skies over to Helsinki.
Eurofighter is offering Finland a once in a generation opportunity to strengthen European defence and security co-operation as it looks to replace the Finnish Air Force's F-18 Hornet fleet.
This invitation is backed by political, military and industrial strength of the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Spain, bringing high value jobs and work to Finnish industry together with world-leading capability to defending the nation.
By choosing Eurofighter, Finland will be choosing these benefits and the ability to independently operate, maintain and control its own aircraft.
RAF Typhoon Display Pilot
The Royal Air Force's Typhoon Display Pilot, Flight Lieutenant James Sainty, will be among the headline acts for the air display over the seafront on Friday evening
With a top speed of Mach 2.0, the agility and flexibility which make Eurofighter the aircraft of choice for air policing and the operational frontline of many European air forces make it a spectacular display aircraft.
You can meet Flight Lieutenant Sainty and the RAF Typhoon Display Team at the Eurofighter exhibition. The team will be located alongside the full-scale aircraft replica.
