The next generation of leaders are invited to experience the world of aerospace, engineering and STEM at Farnborough International Airshow’s Pioneers of Tomorrow, a dedicated day to inspire, engage and recruit the industry’s future workforce.

Organised in collaboration between Farnborough International and ADS, and as part of the world-famous Farnborough International Airshow, the event will take place on Friday 26 July 2024 and will provide industry exhibitors an unrivalled opportunity to engage with and inspire future aerospace recruits.

With a global skills shortage across the industry, the UK aerospace industry is focused on positioning itself as an attractive and viable career opportunity for the future workforce. Aimed at school children aged 11+ to school leavers, graduates and career movers, Pioneers of Tomorrow will introduce the next generation of leaders, innovators, and pioneers to employers, providing valuable insight into the wealth of career opportunities available throughout the global industries the airshow represents.

Free for under 21s, students and apprentices, attendees will be able to immerse themselves in a vast range of on-site Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) focused activities, as well as watch the full flying display, explore the comprehensive static aircraft display and speak to leading industry organisations directly.

Developed with young adults, parents and guardians, and lovers of all things aerospace in mind, Pioneers of Tomorrow will offer a meaningful understanding of what careers across the aerospace industry promise; the skills required, and the value that studying STEM subjects delivers. A dedicated Careers Hub will feature within the airshow exhibition, providing a platform for students, graduates and young professionals to access one-on-one specialist advice, topical seminars, and a live jobs board.

Pioneers of Tomorrow is supported by ADS Group, Rushmoor Borough Council, The Future Business Ltd, National Career Service and Royal Aeronautical Society.


Under 21s, full-time students and apprentices go free. General adult tickets are £36 per person.
