VHR’s Divisional Director of Engineering and Technical, Conor McKeon, and Aviation and Aerospace recruitment executive, Danny Brier, enjoy a busy fourth day at the Farnborough Air Show 2018.


VHR’s Aviation and Aerospace specialists have visited many chalets and exhibition stands where current and potential world-class clients are exhibiting.

The energy throughout the event has continued to buzz; last minute business deals and VIP speeches have dominated the day, creating a lively atmosphere.

Feeling optimistic and energised, both Conor and Danny have experienced effective meetings with promising conversations, creating a bright outlook for future business deals.

Despite less footfall throughout the show, VHR’s stand in Hall 1 has attracted both candidates looking for new job opportunities and even industry competitors wanting to discuss the recruitment business.

Farnborough Air Show: Day Four Events

For the fourth day in a row, exhibitors and visitors were able to get involved in a number of industry-expert seminars and talks:

. Doing business with Rolls Royce: Best opportunities to expand U.S businesses in South Africa.

. Cyber Security in the Aerospace industry: A panel discussing threats to all sectors in the economy.

. Technology in Aerospace & Defence: How businesses are approaching today’s technology trends.

. Cyber Security: Securing digital transformation - Blockchain and Aerospace.

The highlight speech of Day Four at the Farnborough Air Show was by MP Liam Fox - Secretary of State for International Trade.

Presenting to a large audience at the front of Hall 1, Liam Fox proceeded to discuss the both the past and future of trade in the Aerospace industry for the UK and globally also.

The UK Space Agency hosted Liam’s speech, which was closely followed by the MP meeting and greeting those exhibiting in the UK Hall.


Liam Fox approached WEAF stand with eagerness to discuss the future of Aerospace and Defence trade in the South Western area of England - he was pleased to see such a great turn out and so many different sectors within the Aerospace industry exhibiting.

Farnborough Air Show: Who is exhibiting?

The 51st edition of the world-class Farnborough International Air Show hosts exhibition spaces to the industry-leaders in the Aerospace and Defence market. Some of the biggest names exhibiting are:

. Airbus - Global leader in aeronautics, space and related services.

. Rolls Royce - Providers of clean, safe and competitive solutions to meet the planet’s vital power needs.

. Thales - Deliver extraordinary high technology solutions.

. Dassault Systems - Reinvent traditional product development and manufacturing.

Farnborough Air Show: Best Three Impressive Displays

. Cobham: Cobham have impressed visitors and exhibitors with their unique style of brand marketing. Presenting a blue, giant screen, Cobham also provided a mime-act that performed every 30 minutes. Performing to the sound of airplanes, the mime-act move and personify flying aircrafts. Cobham offer an innovative range of technologies and services to solve challenging problems in commercial, defence and security markets.


. Pal-V: Pal-V’s flying car display captured everyone’s attention. It’s revolutionising the future of travel - flying cars, taxi’s and everything autonomous is fascinating and transforming the engineering industry. With that in mind, Pal-V is one of the clear winners regarding impressive displays. Positioned in front of three enormous screens sits the The Liberty - the world’s first certified flying car. The Liberty will be the first vehicle that will be allowed to both drive on public roads and fly in public airspace.

. AirBus A380: Focussing on environmental awareness, Airbus cleverly parked an A380 plane on the runway of the Farnborough Air Show painted in an awareness campaign - the plane was unavoidable and thought provoking. Split in half, one side was painted in a bright turquoise with beautiful coral prints around the aircraft - the message, “Not too late for Coral Reefs”. Comparatively, the other side of the aircraft is designed in a dark blue with white coral prints, capturing the essence of a lost coral ecosystem - the message, “Coral Reefs Gone by 2050”. The emphasis and focus on improving technology and engineering to help protect the environment has never been more paramount in the aerospace industry. The overall message asked “Save the Coral Reefs - Which side are you on?”
