Thank you for your much-appreciated interest in volunteering for AIRSHOW LONDON 2017. Air show success is dependent on the hard work and dedication of volunteers. Once again AIRSHOW LONDON is seeking motivated individuals to help support a variety air show activities, including: show setup, operations, hospitality and many others listed below. If you are interested in taking part as a volunteer please review the job descriptions below and complete the volunteer registration form. Due the popularity of some roles we ask that you consider three possible options. Every effort will be made to accommodate option one however your support may be required elsewhere. You will be contacted if we can't accommodate your first selection.
The air show is a unique volunteer experience and as such there are a few things all perspective volunteers should be aware of. Most volunteer positions will be outdoors and as such volunteers will be subject to the elements. The show venue is quiet expansive; volunteering will involve walking, sometimes on uneven surfaces. Volunteers will be asked to participate in mandatory training session in the build up to the show.
