Farnborough Air Show

Posted on March 12, 2012 at 4:43 AM
The Farnborough International Airshow is a seven-day international trade fair for the aerospace industry which is held in even-numbered years in mid-July at Farnborough Airfield in Hampshire, England.
The airshow is organised by Farnborough International Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of ADS Group Limited (A|D|S), a British aerospace industry organization, to demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential customers and investors. Along with the Paris Air Show, which is held in odd-numbered years, Farnborough is an important event for the aerospace industry, known particularly for the announcement of new developments and orders.
As of the 2010 edition, the show takes place in five indoor exhibition halls and an outdoor aircraft static display. Demonstration flights and a flying display are held each day of the show. On the last two days, the general public are admitted, and some non-commercial items are added to the static and flying displays. Since 1996, the show has had its own official radio station operated by the staff and students of near-by Farnborough College of Technology.
In 2004, the show was attended by more than 1,300 exhibitors and 150,000 trade visitors.
It is held in the same years as the Berlin Air Show (ILA).
The Farnborough Airshow has its origins in the annual RAF Airshow at Hendon from 1920 to 1937. On 27 June 1932, the Society of British Aircraft Constructors held an exhibition of 35 aircraft by 16 companies at Hendon as the show-piece for the British aircraft industry. With a break for World War II, the show recommenced at Radlett (the site of Handley Page's airfield) in 1946 and was held there until 1948, when the show moved to its present location of Farnborough, Hampshire, home of the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Hampshire, about 30 miles (48 km) south-west of central London. The headquarters of the UK's principal aerospace firm, BAE Systems, is also in Farnborough.
At the 1958 show, the Black Arrows executed a 22-plane formation loop This was a world record for the greatest number of aircraft looped in formation, and remains unbroken to this day.
Initially an annual event, Farnborough changed in 1962 to its present biennial format. It also expanded from a British event to an international one that welcomed exhibitors from all over the world — with the exception, during the Cold War, of countries behind the Iron Curtain.

The most recent airshow was the 47th show, which began on 19 July 2010 and ended on 25 July.

Where is the running order for the air show published this year? I don't care if it's hard to find the booth you're looking for. I want your job so bad... I’m not sure if you scared me away or got me more excited about going to one of these – or both!

You might find out that you have very short patience for errors, or that you're very good at business presentations, or you're really good at writing telemarketing scripts for cold calling.

As a lover of airplanes - it is my dream to attend at least one Farnborough Air show. Read that many patrons have already signed for the 2014 show - early booking is until June 28.
