Not sure how well this will work with two shows in fairly close proximity and fair close in timing. I imagine they will have similar performer lineups as well given that most shows tend to keep it pretty consistent from year to year and the 2020 lineup will likely be shifted into 2021. Hopefully they can find a way to differentiate the shows and not over saturate things

They are or if I assume there hosting fundraising campaigns to make enough money and funds for the show. Also, Im almost certain that a lot of organizations and companies will sponsor the show. Will see what happens next, most likely tuning in to ICAS Convection in December to see if the two shows will go on.

The 2020 Oregon International Air Show has been canceled due to the coronavirus.

But officials say 2021 will be a big year for the air show, as it plans two shows in the Portland area within months of each other, including one that will be unlike any in history.

Every performer in the 2021 air show in Hillsboro will be female, officials announced July 11. It's the first "unmanned" show in history, officials say.

The event will take place at the Hillsboro Airport from May 21 through May 23. A second 2021 air show is scheduled in McMinnville, July 30 through Aug. 1.

The decision to host an all-female air show comes after organizers announced this past winter other major changes to the show.

In December, air show officials said the 2020 air show wouldn't be held in Hillsboro for the second straight year. The Hillsboro Airport hosted the event for decades prior to 2019, when construction on a new runway at the airport forced event organizers to move event to McMinnville. The recently canceled 2020 air show was scheduled to take place at the McMinnville Airport Sept. 25 through Sept. 27.

At the time, air show President Bill Braack said after 2020, people should expect the dual air show format to be the norm. He emphasized there would be enough demand for two air shows and the two shows would be distinct.

The announcement of the first all-female air show in Hillsboro delivers on that promise, Braack said.

He added that the decision allows the air show to highlight the contributions women have made to the aviation industry. It also will serve to show young women that aviation isn't only for men, he said. "Women in aviation and STEM career fields are still very small numbers," Braack said. "A big part of the reasoning for the theme of (next year's) show is to make sure that all people, including young ladies, understand that there's incredible opportunities for them in these STEM and aviation fields."

Braack said the pilots, who haven't yet been announced, will be coming from four different countries. He said the air show is still working to add pilots from one or two other countries.

The pilots will be flying everything from planes designed in the early days of aviation to modern fighter jets, Braack said. Static displays at the airport during the event also will be crewed by women, he said.

Braack noted the air show's incoming board chair will be the organization's first woman to take the position. The inspector for the air show from the Federal Aviation Administration also is a woman, he said.

The air show will partner with youth organizations to bring more young women to the show, Braack said.

"For the first time, they'll be able to see themselves in every one of our performers," he said. "That's never been done before at any air show. I think it will be equally important for young boys to be standing in line and getting an autograph from our female performers."
