Schools & Careers Day Exhibitor Application

In 2022 Wings Over Illawarra will feature a Schools & Careers Day.

A major aim of Wings Over Illawarra is to inspire younger Australians to consider careers in the aviation industry.

The School & Careers Open Day will be held on the Friday 11th November, and will run between 10am and 2pm and will serve a dual function for students attending, either by planting seeds to inspire career paths or confirming career direction and through access to professionals who can assist to shape their future with both working knowledge and insight.  The aviation industry is very diverse and is growing rapidly.  Job prospects are strong and students undertaking these career paths will benefit as anticipated future growth of the aviation industry comes to fruition.
