THE ROYAL AIR FORCE CHARITABLE TRUST ENTERPRISES IS BEST KNOWN FOR STAGING THE WORLD'S GREATEST AIRSHOW
The origins of the Royal International Air Tattoo stretch back to an airshow first held at North Weald Airfield in 1971. Inspired by two air traffic controllers, Paul Bowen and Tim Prince, this modest event, organised wholly by volunteers, was originally held in support of the Royal Air Forces Association.
Over the years
Over the years our volunteer force has grown into an army, more than 1500-strong, who bring with them a wealth of aviation and event-management experience that has helped RIAT grow into the enormous event is today.
