Farnborough Airshow - John Bilcliffe.

Farnborough History
Farnborough is the oldest active airfield in the UK. In 1905 the British Army's Balloon School was formed here. In World War 1 a number of RFC and RNAS aircraft, airship, and balloon squadrons were based here. The site has been associated with aircraft and airships since 1908 when the Balloon Equipment Store was moved from Greenwich and renamed the HM Balloon Factory. In 1908 the first powered flight in Great Britain was made at Farnborough, by a man called Cowboy Cody. Cowboy Cody is recorded as having flown just over 304 metre (1000 feet) at 20 miles per hour (32km per hour).

The Royal Aircraft Factory was also based here which engaged in design and construction of aircraft for the War Office. They also did research and development (R&D) work which after the war assumed a growing importance. Most of the aeroplanes built during the First World War were built at Farnborough. During World War II there was development work in all areas such as bomb sights, camera equipment, and rocket projectiles. Captured enemy aircraft were also evaluated here.

After the war Farnborough had established itself as the world's foremost aerospace R&D institution and also gained prestige through its hosting of the biennial 10 day air show which concludes with a public air display on the final weekend. The sound barrier was also broken at Farnborough in 1948 by John Derry.

Today, the airport is home to a number of the UK's largest business jet companies, including Gama Aviation Executive Jet Charter and Bookajet. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch also has its head office in Farnborough House, located in a compound within Farnborough Airport.

Farnborough Airfield has been home to the Farnborough Airshow since 1948, when it opened its gates to the public for the first time.

Farnborough Airshow 2020 has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Farnborough Airshow 2020:


Important Notice

It is with great regret that we announce the Farnborough International Airshow 2020, due to take place in July, is cancelled.

After very careful consideration, the unprecedented impact of the global Coronavirus pandemic has forced this decision in the interests of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, contractors and staff.

This decision was reached taking into consideration several major factors surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, all of which we have concluded, make it is impossible for us to create and host the Airshow this July.

We understand this news will be an incredible disappointment to all across the international aerospace industry, not to mention our important exhibitors, suppliers and visitors. We at Farnborough International share your disappointment that we are unable to present the Airshow as planned , but rest assured, we are determined to continue to work together and will ensure the Farnborough International Airshow returns in 2022 better than ever.

It's important to us that we speak directly to anyone who may have concerns about the Airshow’s cancellation; however, we are a small team and it may take a few days for us to make contact. We appreciate your patience, these are incredibly difficult times but we are absolutely committed to maintaining strong relationships.
