Collectors of aviation books have a treat in store at the show’s only dedicated bookshop. “We are displaying a wide range of our aviation books from glossy books on Airbus to books focusing on airline finance,” says Simon Watson, proprietor of The Aviation Bookshop.

The Aviation Bookshop is based in Tunbridge Wells but has come to the show to reach the wider aviation market.

Book launches will be going on throughout the week at its stand including ‘The Story of Britain’s first Supersonic Pilot, John Derry’ on Saturday, July 19.
