It’s that time of year again as everyone is preparing for one of the biggest dates in the aerospace calendar. From the 16th July, the Farnborough International Airshow will once again open its doors to the trade to do business, and the public for an unforgettable weekend of fun for all the family.

It’s impressive line up of exhibitors include Benchmark, Quadrant, Breton, SAAB, HC Pacific and of course, us!

The 2016 show proved a huge success and saw debuts from nine new aircrafts including Boeing’s 737 MAX, Bombardier’s C Series and aircraft from Embraer, Hondajet, Diamond and Gulfstream.

Other highlights from the 2016 event included:

$124 billion worth of orders and commitments were placed

82 of the top 100 aerospace companies participating

More than 1500 exhibitors from 52 countries came together

71% of exhibitors were from outside of the UK, showcasing a true global offering

Futures Day 2018

It’s expected that 2018’s offering will be much of the same, including a return of their Futures Day. On Friday 20th July, groups from schools, universities and youth associations (aged between 11-21) who are registered by a teacher or group leader, will again get to attend the airshow and participate in Futures Day, for free.

European Space Agency Astronaut, Tim Peake, will officially open Futures Day before the attendees set off on a trail around the airshow and participate in the interactive programme of activities. For more information on Future’s Day, visit here.

Alongside Futures Day, we’ll once again be handing out our FREE guides of ‘How to write a standout CV in the aviation industry’ at stand R7. We’ll be there all week and we’d love you to come over and meet our team.
