The Farnborough International Air show takes place on the site every two years, with July 2018 being the most recent edition of the show. The show returns to Farnborough in July 2020.

With more than 1,500 exhibitors from 48 countries, 100,000sqm of exhibition space, a static aircraft and flying display, $192 Billion in deals done and up to 100,000 visitors over the trade days alone, 2018 was another highly successful year for the FIA.

The airshow, which has been held at the site since 1948, is an important event in the international aerospace and defence industry calendar, providing an opportunity to demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential customers and investors. The show is also used for the announcement of new developments and orders and to attract media coverage.
