Goodwood Aviation show at 2011 Festival of Speed

The second dedicated Goodwood Aviation Show will be held later this week as a key attraction at the highly popular Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show (30 June - 03 July), in association with Air BP. 

The second Goodwood Aviation Show is once again being held at the famous Goodwood Aerodrome as a significant addition to the annual Festival of Speed, and is open to all Festival and Moving Motor Show visitors.

This Aviation Show enables manufacturers and agents of fixed wing and rotary aircraft, plus aviation service suppliers, to showcase their latest innovative aircraft design. The Goodwood Aerodrome is located just half a mile away from the other Festival activities at Goodwood Park, from where aircraft manufacturers will be able to take prospective clients on an evaluation flight. A complimentary shuttle service facilitates a seamless transfer for all visitors the short distance to and from the Aerodrome and Goodwood Park. 

The idea to stage Goodwood Aviation Show as part of the annual Festival of Speed has been largely driven by customer demand. Goodwood has undertaken extensive research at previous Festivals, with the results confirming that almost a third of those attending the event either hold a private pilot’s licence, hire charter aircraft or have a strong interest in aviation. The Festival of Speed offers a superb opportunity for the aviation industry to gain real exposure to a huge high net worth audience. 

For the inaugural Goodwood Aviation Exhibition in 2010 more than half a dozen companies exhibited; all reporting strong interest and direct sales as a result of being at Goodwood. For 2011, all of last year’s participants committed to returning to the Show, with additional exhibitors signing up as well, including the following;

Pleasure flights for the public visiting the Show will be available in the following aircraft, including a Boeing Stearman, a De Havilland Dove and several helicopters. 

Since its introduction in 1993, the Festival of Speed has grown to become the world’s leading celebration of transportation for enthusiasts, with the prime focus being automotive, but other modes of transport also being celebrated, from pedal cycles, right through to high-speed boats and aircraft. In 2010 the event attracted over 176,000 visitors over four days, with the daily air displays – ranging from the Red Arrows to the UK public debut of the Air Bus in flight – being one of the most popular attractions. 

For 2011 the Red Arrows are confirmed to be displaying at Goodwood for three days (from Thursday 30 June to Saturday 2 July) with the Vulcan bomber due to display on Sunday 3 July.
