Industry Relevance 

As a free show, Airbourne – Eastbourne International Airshow doesn’t fund itself through tickets, but rather local council funding and its main function is to boost the local economy of Easterbourne in Sussex. The airshow is scheduled every single year during the month of August for nearly thirty years since 1993. The main importance of Airbourne – Eastbourne International Airshow is that it offers local producers, retailers and manufacturers to showcase their products to out-of-towners over the course of four days. Visitors can purchase just about anything from toys and souvenirs to artisanal goods and fresh produce. The show has consistently been changing with the edition of open-air cinema, concerts and even bringing in the American long-range bomber, B1, for visitors. 

Who Are You Going to Meet

Airbourne – Eastbourne International Airshow has a tight historic connection with British military. This, in turn, greatly flavors who is going to attend. On one hand, there are mostly families that attend the four-day show, but you also have a strong military presence. Namely all three services are attended for, but it’s the Royal Air Force with the biggest presence as they’re taking the lead not just in the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, but also in the ground exhibitions. They bring in displays of planes like Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4, Shorts Tucano T1, Grob Tutor T and Boeing Chinook HC6A. There’s another component to the airshow – a virtual reality area, which immerses visitors into what it’s like inside the F-35B Lightning.
