FARNBOROUGH, England, 7 July 2016. The staff of Intelligent Aerospace and Military & Aerospace Electronics, part of PennWell’s Aerospace & Defense Group, will be on the ground at two popular aerospace industry events: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) at Royal Air Force (RAF) Fairford, Gloucestershire, England, and Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) in Farnborough, England.
“At RIAT and FIA, I have the opportunity to witness innovation in action,” describes Courtney E. Howard, Intelligent Aerospace chief editor and Military & Aerospace Electronics executive editor. “I will be covering lots of ground, particularly in Farnborough, where I will be visiting with engineers and executives from high-tech aerospace organizations, touring new and legacy aircraft in the static display, watching the incredible capabilities of commercial and military pilots and jets in the flying display, as well as meeting new friends and reconnecting with older ones.
This year, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II stealth military fighter jet is making its United Kingdom airshow debut – first at RIAT, then at FIA. Also of note, The Boeing Co. is celebrating its 100th anniversary, or centennial, during FIA.

The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the world's largest military air show, held annually over the third weekend in July in support of The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust. The show typically attracts a total of 150,000 to 160,000 spectators over the weekend. RIAT 2016 is taking place July 8 through 10 at RAF Fairford station in Gloucestershire, England.
FIA is a global showcase for the aerospace industry that attracts an international audience. For manufacturers, it’s an opportunity to demonstrate their aircraft and engines to prospective customers, while for suppliers to the industry, having a presence at the show allows them to showcase their products and services to a targeted audience, says Shaun Ormrod, CEO of Farnborough International Ltd. FIA 2016 trade days are being held July 11 through 15; FIA 2016 public days are July 16 and 17.
