The Farnborough International Airshow is a seven-day international trade fair for the aerospace industry which is held in even-numbered years in mid-July at Farnborough Airfield in Hampshire, England.
The airshow is organised by Farnborough International Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of ADS Group Limited (A|D|S), a British aerospace industry organization, to demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential customers and investors. Along with the Paris Air Show, which is held in odd-numbered years, Farnborough is an important event for the aerospace industry, known particularly for the announcement of new developments and orders.
As of the 2010 edition, the show takes place in five indoor exhibition halls and an outdoor aircraft static display. Demonstration flights and a flying display are held each day of the show. On the last two days, the general public are admitted, and some non-commercial items are added to the static and flying displays. Since 1996, the show has had its own official radio station operated by the staff and students of near-by Farnborough College of Technology.
In 2004, the show was attended by more than 1,300 exhibitors and 150,000 trade visitors.
It is held in the same years as the Berlin Air Show (ILA).
