AirBourne Aviation

Airbourne Aviation operates as the UK's only all-weather training facility so when other flight schools are unable to fly due to poor weather, training can continue uninterrupted utilising their approved full motion C42 flight training simulator. AirBourne also bring a simulator (below) to the Techno Zone® each year! This allows children and adults to experience flying a light aircraft and proves extremely popular. 

On 10 January 2019, young aspiring pilot Eloeyse (above), who worked on the AirBourne Aviation stand at the 2018 Air Tattoo, flew solo for the first time in one of AirBourne's real C42 aircraft!

ExoMars Rover

Three ExoMars prototype rovers exist, Bruno, Bridget and Bryan. One of these amazing machines will be on display and roving around a simulated Martian surface at the 2019 Air Tattoo!

ExoMars is a space mission initiated by ESA to look for life on Mars. The ExoMars rover, a robotic Mars vehicle, is currently under final development by Airbus Defence and Space. On 7 February 2019 British Astronaut Tim Peake unveiled the name of the final production ExoMars Rover, Rosalind Franklin. Rosalind will be the vehicle that travels to the red planet next year.


Pleiades Satellite

Launched in December 2011, Pleiades is a constellation of two very-high-resolution satellites capable of acquiring imagery of any point on the globe in under 24 hours for civil and military users. The Pleiades system orbits the Earth at a distance of over 400 miles but can still take photos with up-to 50cm resolution. Orbiting twice a day, they can cover over 1 million square kilometres of the globe on each pass.
