Futures Day

The Airshow is the perfect backdrop to motivate young people to study STEM subjects and discover the many different career opportunities available in the dynamic sectors of Aerospace and Defence. In 2016 Futures Day attracted over 5,000 young people.

On Friday 20 July 2018, groups from schools, universities and youth associations (aged between 11-21) who are registered by a teacher or group leader, will again get to attend the airshow and participate in Futures Day, for FREE.

We are delighted to announce that European Space Agency Astronaut, Tim Peake, will officially open Futures Day 2018 and meet with groups throughout the day.

The interactive, informative and engaging full day programme will enable the next generation to see first-hand the variety, innovation and expertise that makes a career in these key sectors so rewarding.
