About Farnsborough Airshow

Farnborough Aerodrome is renowned for its long-standing aviation links. No other site in the United Kingdom, possibly the world, can claim a closer, more continuous association with the history of man's conquest of air than the airfield at Farnborough.

Aircraft and, before that, man-carrying kites, airships and balloons have taken off from the grasslands since the early days of the century. Virtually every major development in aerospace technology since Orville Wright flew from Kitty Hawk in 1903 has, in some way, been linked with the pioneers who have researched on the airfield and in the clusters of laboratories and test centres that lay amongst the Farnborough runways.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the world’s largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation and aerospace, is a nonprofit, independent institution offering more than 70 baccalaureate, master’s and Ph.D. degree programs in its colleges of Arts & Sciences, Aviation, Business, Engineering and Security & Intelligence. Embry-Riddle educates students at residential campuses in Daytona Beach, Fla., and Prescott, Ariz., through the Worldwide Campus with more than 150 locations in the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and through online programs. The university is a major research center, seeking solutions to real-world problems in partnership with the aerospace industry, other universities and government agencies.
