Aerobility Live ‘armchair airshow’ set to return in 2024

Aerobility’s popular ‘Armchair Airshow’ is to return this year, now modified to include an onsite audience and rebranded as ‘Aerobility Live’.

The UK aviation charity first launched the Armchair Airshow four years ago when COVID19 pandemic restrictions meant that public events were banned. The event was a huge hit with aviation fans throughout the world who got a unique insight behind the scenes, beamed direct to their living rooms.

This year’s event will again be live-streamed online, under a new name – Aerobility Live – with the ‘live’ element denoting that there will also be a limited number of tickets available for those who want to watch in person from the charity’s headquarters at Blackbushe Airport.

The event will coincide with Blackbushe Air Day, an annual event celebrating all things aviation. The event, which is taking place on Saturday 15 June, will feature a static aircraft display, pleasure flights and fun for all of the family. Aerobility will be hosting its own area for the first time this year, named the ‘Aerobility Live Zone’.

This area will feature a big screen showing specially recorded aerial demonstrations, including live commentary from pilots, providing a fascinating insight into the skills required to perform these flying feats.

Aerobility is a charity which provides anyone, with any disability, access to the magic and wonder of flight. Commenting on this year’s event, Aerobility CEO Mike Miller-Smith said: “Aerobility Live was initially born out of the necessity of public events being banned as a result of the pandemic. In the years following, we have been able to build on our original idea, and in 2024 we are so excited to have a live audience as well as one online.

Whether you are an aviation enthusiast or not there will be something for everyone. By watching the show at home or in person, you will be supporting the important work that we do all year round.

As a charity, we have immense gratitude for the amazing support we receive from the aviation community. I truly hope you will be able to support the Aerobility Live this year and by doing so support the work we do with disabled people.”
