Oriens, the exclusive UK distributor of Pilatus aircraft, had a PC-12 at FoS Air on display and hosted a bespoke arrivals lounge at the Goodwood Aerodrome, welcoming the many visitors that flew into the event. We were delighted to welcome the Royal Navy and their Westland Lynx Mk3 which sat alongside Textron, Cessnas and Nicolas McLaren.
The Goodwood Flying School always enjoy FoS Air, with the chance to talk to current students and those interested in all things aviation. They had the 1943 Harvard on display which always draws a huge crowd, some of whom were even able to climb into this very special aircraft.
For those inspired to get a taste of flying or just see the magnitude of the event from the air, helicopter sightseeing flights were available, giving guests a unique view of the event below.
Back on the ground, a selection of Pedal Planes were available for the little ones to pilot around and budding astronauts could get a taste of what life is like in space, thanks to the Novium Museum bringing part of its ‘Tim Peake: An Extraordinary Journey’ exhibition. Replica space suits, robotic arms and an interactive area were on display with museum staff explaining the challenges faced by astronauts when working outside our atmosphere.
