Farnborough Friday FIA Connect

Print page

The cancellation of July’s Farnborough International Airshow in response to the COVID-19 pandemic generated huge disappointment. The Airshow was to host the first Farnborough Friday: a day focussed on enabling the next generation to build a rewarding career in the broad range of industries represented at the show.

Instead, Farnborough Friday will take place as part of FIA Connect on July 24. This digital event will showcase the best in science, technology, engineering and mathematics; giving students, apprentices, graduates and young professionals considering a career in aerospace unprecedented access to industry, with a dedicated careers hub and a programme of inspirational speakers.’

‘We welcomed the announcement last month of Farnborough International Airshow Connect (FIA Connect). A virtual free-to-attend event bringing together the global aerospace industry during what would have been Farnborough International Airshow 20-24 July.’

One of the biggest challenges facing the future of the aerospace industry is attracting, but also retaining, the right skills needed to maintain the pace of growth and fulfill the sustainability agenda.
Farnborough Friday provides a platform for inspired and engaged students, graduates and young professionals to meet with companies from across aviation, to discover the wide range of careers and skills that are needed to make the industry fly.
