Historic signing at Farnborough Airshow

Farnborough Aerospace Consortium (FAC) has hosted an historic trans-Atlantic agreement at the Farnborough International Airshow.

The agreement between Dayton in the US and the Rushmoor district, where Farnborough is situated, will foster greater friendship and understanding between the two places that were twinned in 2019.

Gil Turner, CEO of Dayton International Airport, and Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, put pen to paper on the second morning of the air show.

The document means that Farnborough International Air Show and Dayton Air Show in the US will work more closely together.

Turner said: “This agreement recognises our commitment to aviation and our commonality in promoting it.

“We have shared histories with the Wright Brothers in Ohio and Samuel Cody in Farnborough.”

Rogers said: “We both have an interest in aviation and aerospace and it is always great to share knowledge and friendships and important to recognise our similar histories.”

Graham Chisnall, chairman of FAC, said: “This is the second agreement signed at our stand so far at the air show.

“Global industries require these agreements because they link businesses and lead to new relationships that will help drive investment.

“Farnborough Airport is a member of ours and we have other exciting agreements in the pipeline.”
