Whilst other media has suffered in the economic downturn, Air Shows are going from strength to strength. Our research explains why Air Shows are the perfect experiential media channel - no other events can deliver the volume of audience.
Aviation is not part of people’s everyday lives, but it seems to be a focal point for a deep admiration of British expertise and engineering at its best.
Air displays demonstrate military expertise and reflect national pride. They drive recruitment, charitable giving, maintain a living memorial, stimulate tourism and economic development and sometimes exist to generate multi-million pound sales and manufacturing profit.
Britain has a tremendous aviation heritage, which has shaped our history and place in the world; from the Spitfire which won the Battle of Britain, to the supersonic Concorde. These household names mask a quiet growth in UK aviation preservation and restoration; this creates a flourishing display scene.
