With the last Farnborough International Airshow but a distant memory from 2018, the 2022 event looms up.
Registrations have now opened for the most important aerospace and defence event in four years.
The first powered flight in Britain was at Farnborough on 16 October 1908, when Samuel Cody took off in his British Army Aeroplane No 1.
Taking place 18−22 July, the occasion will see global aerospace and aviation leaders return to the airfield for five days of unrivalled opportunities to discover the latest pioneering technology and engineering, announce historic partnerships, build connections and work towards the cumulative sustainable aerospace vision as an industry.
New for 2022, the Aerospace Global Forum will revolutionise how the industry will share knowledge and tackle global challenges. Bolstering Farnborough International Airshow’s position as the pinnacle aerospace event, the Aerospace Global Forum will see pioneers and innovators from across the worldwide technology, sustainability, engineering, space, and defence spheres convene and immerse themselves in driving accelerated material change through an aerospace lens.
Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, said: “With the entire world now focusing on the critical health and sustainability of the planet, we are at the most important junction in the history of aerospace. Without face-to-face opportunities to discuss the opportunities and challenges for the future of aerospace over the last two years, Farnborough International Airshow’s role in the industry is now more vital than ever.
“With over 90% of the exhibition spaces sold, this year is set to be our most internationally attended event in our history and we cannot wait to welcome the global industry to Farnborough International Airshow 2022”.
On exhibiting at the 2022 airshow, John Harrison, Chairman, Airbus UK, said: “As we continue to pioneer sustainable aerospace for a safe and united world, we look forward to strengthening our connections and showcasing our innovative new technologies.
“Working together to recover from a challenging two years and building on our success from 2018, which saw a plethora of international orders and deals completed, we look forward to reconnecting with our peers, partners and of course meeting with the latest innovators across the aerospace, defence, security and space sectors".
Airbus will be joined by a host of major aerospace companies, including ATR, Boeing, Boom Supersonic, Embraer, GE Aviation, Lockheed Martin, and Rolls-Royce, all exhibiting their latest innovations and technology at the show. No Russian aircraft this time.
