Our Research On Airshows

Home | Blog | Research On Airshows

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.
