The RAeS Publications team report from the final day at #Farn10

While aerospace executives were still celebrating from the bumper orders placed during the airshow, Friday saw Farnborough host a special careers and youth day called Futures Day. Up to 3,000 young people descended on the show to learn more about the exciting world of aerospace and the potential careers in aerospace, defence and security. With a chance to get hands-on with the SCS Bloodhound Supersonic car, check out the Mars Rover, or see the Schools Build A Plane microlight, there was no danger of boredom.

The RAeS Publications team report from #Farn10

Day 4 of the Farnborough airshow and the weather finally turned, with a torrential downpour that sometimes made hearing what people were saying difficult in the halls.

The RAeS Publications team report from #Farn10 on the third day.

With the sunshine and heat continuing, the third day of Farnborough airshow continued in an upbeat vein – at least for the civil sector. By midweek, the official show business figures had reported some $37.5bn worth of deals signed at the show, vindicating many attendees who said that the industry had survived the recession in fairly good shape and was now gearing up for the uptick.

Farnborough 2010 - Day 1 highlights

Added on 20 July 2010 by Tim Robinson

The RAeS Publications team report from #Farn10

Perhaps it was the sunshine that put optimism in the air. Perhaps it was yesterday’s arrival of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, or the flying display that including the Avro Vulcan, Red Arrows, A400M and F-22. Whatever the reason, there were a good few many aerospace executives feeling a lot more positive after this first day than at last year’s Paris airshow. Go To Item

Top 10 things to look out for at Farnborough 2010

Added on 19 July 2010 by Royal Aeronautical Society

It’s that time of year again, where every two years it seems the global aerospace industry decamps to Hampshire, UK, for the Farnborough International Airshow. Part cocktail reception, part travelling circus and part high-level business conference, it leaves the residents of Hampshire unable, for a whole week, to find a spare taxi driver, security guard or waitress, as this massive event hoovers up all in its path.

Full dream ahead

Added on 03 March 2010 by Royal Aeronautical Society

After false starts — Boeing’s flight test campaign for the 787 is now underway, ahead of the first delivery of the Dreamliner later this year. TIM ROBINSON profiles the testing activity for the 787 and speaks to Randy Tinseth, vice president marketing, Boeing Commerical Airplanes, on the programme’s future.

This is an excerpt from an article published in Aerospace International: March 2010

On 15 December 2009 on a cold and misty Seattle morning, the prototype Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the first all new airliner of the 21st century made its maiden flight, watched by Boeing employees, the world’s media and also by thousands around the globe logged in online through the Internet. The three-hour flight from the 787 factory at Everett’s Paine Field saw the two pilots, chief test pilot Mike Carriker and engineering test pilot Randy Neville thread ZA001 round foggy weather to finally land at the flight test centre at Boeing Field. With the visibility closing in and a requirement for safety reasons to take off to the north, (where it is more sparsely populated) it had been touch and go on the day but, luckily, a weather window appeared and history was made.
