Aquila at RAF Cosford Air Show

Aquila was a major sponsor of the recent RAF Cosford Air Show and, as it is the only RAF-run air show in the UK, it was a fantastic opportunity for members of our team to network with our customer. 

During the day there was an impressive 6-hour flying display of military aircraft including the Eurofighter Typhoon, Boeing Chinook Helicopter, the Red Arrows and the Hawker Hurricane to name a few.

We also exhibited within the STEM Hanger where we met many young and potential engineers who expressed an interest in our virtual reality airfield and demonstrated their skills of developing a paper aircraft to fly through three hoops on our mini runway.

Chris Trippick, Head of Communications and Corporate Affairs said “The show gave us a great opportunity to raise the profile of the company and showcase the work we do.  We also introduced visitors to the stand to a virtual airfield which displayed all the necessary equipment to sequence aircraft to take-off and land - this gave many visitors their first experience of an airfield.  We were very proud to be a part of the RAF Cosford Air Show and to have met many young people interested in the aviation industry.”
