Farnborough International AirShow 2018

We attended a trade day at Farnborough on Friday 20th July and it was a spectacular event.  Hosted by ADS Group (Aircraft/Defence/Space).  The show organisation was faultless and thoroughly enjoyable.

ADS reported the following successes:

  • US $192bn in deals were announced, up by $67.5bn on the 2016 Airshow.
  • Our most international show yet with around 100 countries in attendance.
  • More than 80,000 trade visits through the gates.
  • The first FIA with new Hall 1 facility
  • 2,000+ visitors in our FINN theatres 

In the afternoon there were the flying displays with of course the WW2 memorial flight of a Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster, Red Arrows, a daredevil display by a Red Bull team, the Harrier Jump-Jet and demonstrations of civil aircraft capabilities.

We made some very useful connections but realised that the vastness of the show couldn’t be covered in a single day.  It was a very good day.

The public days at the weekend were very well attended with the added advantage of fine and dry weather, a stark contrast from 2016 when day one had to be abandoned because of heavy rain and thunderstorms
