Farnborough Air Show

Taking place just once every 2 years, the Farnborough International Airshow is one of the most iconic events in Hampshire, if not the world. Held at the historical Farnborough Aerodrome in Hampshire – the birthplace of British aviation, the show features a jam-packed flying display both on the ground and in the air, as well as a multitude of entertainment features.

2014 saw the introduction of Farnborough Airshow Live, the interactive and informative live stage show featuring commentary, competitions and interviews. From the static aircraft display to exhibits, rides as well as local businesses, there really is something for everyone.

Kids Go Free!

Remember, entry to the Farnborough Airshow is free for children under the age of 16 as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
