The Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) is one of the world's most iconic global aviation events. FIA holds a prominent position within the aerospace calendar taking place on a biennial basis (once every two years) for one week in July. The first five days of the exhibition are traditionally trade days only, followed by a weekend where the show is opened up to the public.
The most recent FIA took place from 19-25 July 2010 and was a spectacular success for business with US$47 billion worth of orders announced during the trade week. The event also featured 152 aircraft in static displays and spectacular flying displays and the public weekend attracted a more than 108,000 visitors.
