Following an era of dramatic change across the aerospace industry, the face of the industry’s workforce is changing more rapidly than ever before. Gareth Rogers, Chief Executive of Farnborough International says: “With an estimated shortage of over 173,000 professionals in the STEM sector, it is vital for the industry to inspire the next generation of leaders and close the skills gap that has been persistent across the last four years."

The Workforce theme is an important discussion point throughout the 5 days at FIA2024 but truly takes centre stage on the last day when attention turns to our Pioneers of Tomorrow event. Aimed at students and young professionals interested in a career in the sector, this event was created to inspire future generations and enable companies to highlight the opportunities they have on offer.

Visitors are able to explore the latest technologies revolutionising the automation of the sector and meet with the industry leaders seeking to fill the gaps in the modern workforce.

Pioneers of Tomorrow is open to everyone, no matter their age or background, from aviation enthusiasts to someone discovering the wonders of aerospace for the first time.

If you are interested in attending our careers-focused public day on the Friday, you can register your interest here.
