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, Gear Up TV and Emerald Media will be heading up an event on behalf of Women in Aviation International's UK chapter aimed at schoolgirls aged 11-14. It takes place in the Lloyd and Navigate Rooms at the airshow on Friday morning between 10am and noon.
Among a huge roster of speakers there is wannabe astronaut and BBC star Tess Naran, Baroness Sugg, Minister of Aviation, Dame Deidre Hutton, Chair of the UK CAA, Cat Burton - highest ranking female pilot for British Airways when she retired, (fingers crossed) Kirsty Murphey - former Red Arrow pilot, and Jeannine Fernandes of NATS.
