Farnborough 2014

The event is already 90% sold and a number of ‘aviation firsts’ might well include a fully kitted out Airbus A350 AWD and the promising Bombardier CSeries.  ATR is rumoured to be ready to unveil an entirely new version of its top selling turboprop at the show.

Some 1,500 exhibitors from 39 countries representing all aerospace sectors (civil, defence, space) of the supply chain are expected to converge at the Hampshire airfield, the home of the show since 1949.  It was in 1932 that the Society of British Aircraft Constructors (later called SBAC) held an exhibition of 35 aircraft by 16 companies at Hendon Airfield in North London as a showpiece for the British aircraft industry.  After 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. www.farnborough.com
