Ever feel like getting off a plane is taking much longer than it should? 🤔 If so, you aren't alone!

Join us in our goal of improving the lives of airline passengers by testing the most effective ways of exiting a plane!

In a big deboarding experiment, we would like to find out which is the best way to leave a plane. We will film inside a real aircraft body and try a variety of deboarding methods to determine which procedure is the quickest.
And each method of deboarding will also be evaluated by you! 👨🎓 👩🎓

⏰Date: March 23rd 9am 6pm
🚩Place: Cotswold Airport, Cirencester / Tetbury Road entrance
👉In order to sign up for the event, please send an email to

We would like to make the experiment as realisitc as possible, so please bring your own hand luggage. 👜 🛍️ ✌️
We can't offer any financial recompensation, but we provide a heated marquee, catering and a unique experience!
The production is a 15 min documentary for Galileo, a daily prime time show that is to be seen in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

If there are any questions, you can reach us via email or at 0049 89 255 44 80 36

Thank you so much & Welcome on board!

Reposted from a Facebook group - not a public one but huge numbers of members, so I think I can share

1. Are there studies of how people get off trains and buses to reduce delays on joining / leaving public transport - how far a head should a station stop be announced, for example, and is there a case for suggesting people get ready?

2. In case any readers want a day out at Cotswold Airport getting on and off a plane!

In answer to 1. above - commuters do get up generally well in advance, while leisure travellers quite often wait until the train stops before even getting up!
