Farnborough International Airshow 2016

Members of the International Trade & Investment APPG were invited to Farnborough Aerodrome, the birthplace of British Aviation, for this year’s Airshow.

The world leader in the global aviation calendar, Farnborough Airshow is a global showcase for UK industry. More SMEs exhibit at Farnborough than any other international exhibition.

Hosted by the trade association ADS, the group enjoyed a guided tour of this power-house trade exhibition, meeting with manufacturers and buyers.

The airshow was a resounding success for UK jobs, exports and growth. Over US$120bn of orders and commitments were announced at this year’s show, including for over 850 aircraft and 1,400 engines – work worth well over £11bn to the UK.
