Farnborough 2016

Not that far away, the first trade day is Monday 11 July, the 2016 Farnborough International Air Show is 90% sold out with only limited exhibitor opportunities available.

Over 20 nations will be hosting pavilions at the show from Europe, the US, Canada, South America, Russia and the Far East. As well as a Korean and Japanese pavilion, the show will also welcome for the first time a Chinese pavilion providing companies including AVIC, COMAC, Aviage Systems and others in the Chinese supply chain the opportunity to promote the country's growing aerospace industry.

One aircraft eagerly expected is the Bombardier CSeries single aisle medium-haul twin jet.  It will be a fine opportunity to see what the slow selling but now certificated aircraft is like interior-wise, for comparison with smaller Embraer competitors and the Airbus and Boeing offerings.  Airbus will probably display the latest A320 series neo, whilst Boeing is likely to bring over a MAX development aircraft.

Speaking about the show's international participation, Amanda Stainer, commercial director, Farnborough International Ltd (FIL), said: "National pavilions are an excellent opportunity for aerospace companies to participate at the show alongside their tier one and tier two counter parts. They serve to develop business relationships across borders and we're delighted that they choose the Farnborough International Airshow to do this."  www.farnborough.com
