Aerospace Farnborough Media Dinner

Wing Commander Andy Green, ‘The Fastest man on Earth’, is to be the guest speaker for the pre-Farnborough Aerospace Media Dinner on 8 July at the Royal Aeronautical Society.  Driving Richard Noble’s Thrust SSC (SuperSonic Car) in 1997, Andy set the world’s first and only supersonic land speed record at an astonishing 763 mph driving literally ‘faster than a speeding bullet’.  Andy is currently preparing to drive the new Bloodhound SSC, designed to reach an astonishing 1000 mph, the ultimate Land Speed Record challenge.  The Bloodhound Project aims to inspire the next generation of young engineers and scientists, while setting the most remarkable Land Speed Record of all time.

Readers should note that Britain’s gathering of the aerospace industry takes place earlier this year due to the London Olympics (Monday 9 July until the following Sunday).  The media dinner is something of a misnomer in that it is open to all (although most tables are taken by companies/organisations) and aerospace writing press awards are given out.  It is a social/networking gathering with the real work of the week to follow as the aerospace industry gathers from the four corners of the world.  The iconic headquarters of the Royal Aeronautical Society, at London’s Hyde Park Corner, is an ideal setting. http://aerospacemediadinner.com
