The U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor Demo Team will perform at the New York International Air Show on August 29-30, 2020 at NY Stewart International Airport. This will be the first the the F-22 Demo Team has performed at the event since its inaugural year in 2015.
The F-22 Raptor Demo Team demonstrates the Air Force’s newest air-to-air fighter aircraft. The F-22’s combination of stealth, supercruise, maneuverability, and integrated avionics, coupled with improved supportability, represents an exponential leap in fighter aircraft capabilities. The Raptor performs both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. The F-22 cannot be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft.

A combination of sensor capability, integrated avionics, situational awareness, and weapons provides air superiority against any threat. The F-22 possesses a sophisticated sensor suite allowing the pilot to track, identify, shoot and eliminate air-to-air threats before being detected. Significant advances in cockpit design and sensor fusion improve the pilot’s situational awareness.
The F-22 has a significant capability to attack surface targets. Munitions are stored internally and use on-board avionics for navigation and delivery. Advances in low-observable technologies, known as stealth provide significantly improved survivability and lethality against any threat.
The F-22 engines produce more thrust than any current fighter engine. The combination of sleek aerodynamic design and increased thrust allows the F-22 to cruise at supersonic airspeeds (greater than 1.5 Mach) without using afterburner — a characteristic known as supercruise. Supercruise greatly expands the F-22 ‘s operating envelope in both speed and range over current fighters, which must use fuel-consuming afterburner to operate at supersonic speeds. The sophisticated F-22 aerodesign, advanced flight controls, thrust vectoring, and high thrust-to-weight ratio provide the capability to outmaneuver all current and projected aircraft.
