A major aim of Wings Over Illawarra is to inspire younger Australians to consider careers in the aviation industry. Wings Over Illawarra has partnered with them to present the School & Careers Open Day. The Open Day will provide a unique opportunity for students to access information on aviation career opportunities from various aviation exhibitors, commercial and defence aviation, government regulators and industry organisations.
Exhibitors include the Australian Defence Force and defence industry companies, flight training schools, maintenance organisations, universities, TAFE NSW, and other accredited training organisations.
Attendees should dress appropriately for this outdoor event, with plenty of sunscreen and hats for warm days as there is little shade. Earplugs are available on-site, but bringing your own for younger patrons may be necessary. Picnics can be brought in; however, alcohol is not permitted.
There will also be plenty of food and drink stalls inside the venue where you can purchase lunch and a cold drink. If you intend to sit and watch the flying displays, you can bring your own chair.
Due to the large number of visitors attending Wings Over Illawarra and the absence of large parking areas at the airport, visitors travelling by car must park in the designated park-and-ride location. Onsite parking is only available to buses, coaches, Gold Pass holders and accredited disabled permit holders ONLY.
Wings Over Illawarra will deliver one of the most exciting and diverse flying display programs ever seen in Australia.
