Flight International, August 2022
The Farnborough air show returned for the first time since 2018, with sweltering heat and the rise of sustainability topics grabbing the headlines, rather than the traditional pre-pandemic glut of commercial orders.
Our show report brings you the biggest stories from aerospace’s main event of the year, including UK plans for a Tempest demonstrator programme and the rapid rise of the electric vertical take-off and landing sector.
We review airline safety from the first six months of 2022, and detail the highest-profile accidents and incidents recorded as global air travel recovered after Covid-19 lockdowns. Plus: why passenger-to-freighter conversion demand keeps soaring; the latest aerial firefighting programme developments; and NATO’s growing strength.
Also this issue, we report from the ILA Berlin air show and Royal International Air Tattoo, and assess China’s launch of its new aircraft carrier, the CNS Fujian.
