Schools: win a chance to meet the Red Arrows!

Entries for the Schools competition are now closed. 

Primary school children could be in with the chance of meeting the world-famous Red Arrow’s pilots at the Bournemouth Air Festival by designing their own paper aeroplane.

All schools that enter will be invited to a special live Question and Answer event online with the Red Arrows during term time in late June.

One winner will be chosen to meet the Red Arrow pilots at the festival, which runs from 31 August – 3 September.

The runners up will see their designs displayed in the fantastic Ultra Energy STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Village at this year’s festival and in the official festival brochure. 

A message from the Red Arrows:

Squadron Leader Tom Bould, Team Leader and Red 1 of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, said: “STEM subjects power the work of the Red Arrows and are at the core of so many roles within the RAF.

“Every time the team takes to the air, our precision shows are the result of a great deal of planning plus application of fast maths and expert engineering. 

“I’d encourage young people in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area to use these exciting, dynamic aerobatic displays as aviation inspiration and be creative in their paper aeroplane designs.”
