Supporting women in aviation at Farnborough Airshow

We were delighted to take part in Women in Aviation UK’s ‘See her, be her’ event during the Farnborough Airshow in Hampshire, UK, on 20 July. The event, which took part on Future’s Day, was designed to inspire young children (and girls in particular) to pursue a career in aviation. 

Nausicaa Mercadal, one of our design and project engineers, joined a stellar line-up of women working in the aviation sector to talk about her role with Air BP. A table-top networking session enabled children to test out their interview skills and knowledge of the far-reaching aviation sector, including a puzzle on how into-plane fuelling works.

We look forward to seeing you at the following shows in August 

Join us at this year’s Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (LABACE), which is being hosted from 14-16 August in São Paulo, Brazil. 

Our local team will be on hand to update you on all the latest news from the region including our recent collaboration with local partner, Avantto Aircraft Administration, to offset carbon emissions related to aviation fuel. You’ll find us on booth 2009 (row 2), so come and say hello. 

For aviation enthusiasts and families alike, the Rand Airshow in Germiston, Johannesburg, makes for a great day out. We are delighted to once again be the official fuel sponsor for the show which will be hosted by Rand Airport (QRA/ FAGM) on 19 August. 

And, last but not least, from 17-19 August we will be joining the crowds descending on Gdynia in Poland for the Gdynia Aerobaltic 2018 Airshow. If you’re planning on attending the airshow, Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport (GDN/ EPGD), is an ideal choice, as it’s just over 30km from Gdynia. Jet A-1 is available here and out of hours fuelling is available on request.
