Embry-Riddle was well represented at last week's Farnborough International Airshow in England. Check out President Dr. John P. Johnson, Worldwide Chancellor John Watret and other Embry-Riddle administrators who were on hand to promote the university, aerospace industry and the state of Florida to this international audience.
The second day of the show's festivities continued the message that the Aerospace industry strives to expand and create innovative projects for the future.
Admissions representatives from Europe and Daytona Beach spoke with parents and prospective students who were interested in learning more about Embry-Riddle. Many alumni stopped by to visit the Embry-Riddle booth and chalet. And officials from the Embry-Riddle Worldwide Europe campus spoke to visitors about the launch of their Aviation Finance and Unmanned Systems programs.
University President Dr. John P Johnson met with Embry-Riddle partners to foster research and development projects with the university.
“Embry-Riddle really belongs here," he said. "We do a lot of business and we form partnerships with the aerospace industry and invite aerospace companies to come into the ERAU research park and search for solutions to real-world problems. This airshow is a great place to form those partnerships and develop relationships.”

ABOUT FARNBOROUGH AIRSHOW
Farnborough Aerodrome is renowned for its long-standing aviation links. No other site in the United Kingdom, possibly the world, can claim a closer, more continuous association with the history of man's conquest of air than the airfield at Farnborough.
Aircraft and, before that, man-carrying kites, airships and balloons have taken off from the grasslands since the early days of the century. Virtually every major development in aerospace technology since Orville Wright flew from Kitty Hawk in 1903 has, in some way, been linked with the pioneers who have researched on the airfield and in the clusters of laboratories and test centres that lay amongst the Farnborough runways.
