NI International Airshow comes to City of Derry Airport 02.09.11.

A Belgian Air Force F16 fighter jet performs aerial acrobatics over City of Derry Airport ahead of todays Portrush International Air show. The single seater jet can achieve speeds of unto 1500 miles per hour and can climb at a rate of 254 meters per second. Picture Martin McKeown.

The tenth running of the NI International Airshow in Portrush is set to welcome back a number of crowd favourites who couldn’t attend last year.

The free show, sponsored by SPAR and NITB, takes place at the seaside town on the first weekend of September. The ever-popular Team Guinot Wingwalkers are back with a stunning new paint job and a new name, Team Breitling, named after the famous Swiss watches. The thrilling stunt show which features girls standing on the wing while the aircraft performs loops and spins has always been popular with spectators and were much missed from last year’s programme. To celebrate the tenth show the team has made a special effort to make it to the north coast and will use the occasion to give a thrill of a lifetime to our VIP guest during the show.

One of the reasons for the spectacular popularity of the event is that it is much more than just an airshow. There will be something to appeal to all tastes. The shoreline is packed with arena shows such as England’s Crazy Bear Roadshow, Yorkshire’s Rapide Brothers, World War 2 re-enactors, model aircraft, quiz shows and giveaways, 80 trade stands, Royal Navy rugby, RAF Typhoon cockpit, simulators, Candy Devine’s Downtown Radio show, Royal Marine Unarmed Combat demo and of course the parade and poppy drop to mark the 90th year of the Royal British Legion.

The Peace Bridge Needs Your Vote

The Peace Bridge is part of Derry’s regeneration programme. Funded by the European Union’s PEACE III programme (Shared Space initiative), the Peace Bridge will be a living landmark and a lasting legacy. Construction of the bridge commenced in January 2010 and was opened on June 25th 2011.

The bridge measures 235 metres bank to bank and is approximately 4 metres wide, with landing points at the rear of the Guildhall and Ebrington. The design concept for the bridge itself is based on the idea of two hands reaching out to link together and links together the previously divided communities on either side of the River Foyle.

The project was a first in Northern Ireland, in that social clauses in the contract ensured the employment of twelve local unemployed people, most of whom have gone on to secure full time employment with GRAHAM.


In late 2009, Derry City Council, who own City of Derry Airport, placed an advert in the European journal for a ‘Partnership Opportunity’ at the airport. Parsons Brinckerhoff / Regional & City (PB/RCA) Airports, a Balfour Beatty Company, together with 6 other parties, responded to the advert, with PB/RCA proposing a Management Services Agreement which would supplement the existing management team with PB/RCA staff whilst leveraging the expertise embedded at the two Regional & City operated airports. After a number of rounds of bidding, PB/RCA were awarded the 10 year contract, in October 2010.

This form of contract is the first of its kind within the UK aviation market. Other forms of contract, such as concession agreements, are in existence but this model, where the asset is owned by one party with management services provided by another is new and reflects the unique offering of PB/RCA – consultancy services delivered by Parsons Brinckerhoff supplemented with expertise and operational support from the management teams of Regional & City Airports at their existing two Balfour Beatty airports.

In 2013 Balfour Beatty announced the sale of its aviation interests to the Rigby Group PLC.  As part of this sale Regional City Airport Management (RCAM) was established as the division of the organization responsible for Management and Consultancy and replaced Parsons Brinkerhoff.  RCAM is a specialist airport management company which is focused on operating airports which accommodate up to 3 million passengers a year, cargo, freight, corporate and general aviation.  The Rigby Group own Exeter, Norwich and Coventry airports as well as Cardiff Heliport and RCAM is responsible for the overall operation of City of Derry Airport, Blackpool Airport and Lee on the Solent – Daedalus Airfield.
