WEAF returns to FIA after 4 years!

Despite record breaking temperature levels, members and the WEAF team had an excellent first day, connecting with acquaintances old and new.

WEAF kicked off the show with the launch of its new corporate video and member’s digital Network Portal, which both received excellent feedback. They will be communicating the roll out plan to onboard members onto the platform over the coming months.

The UK pavilion, including ADS and the other Regional Aerospace Trade Associations were pleased that the Prime Minister Boris Johnson took an interest in meeting UK SME’s at the start of his tour of the show.

On touring the show, WEAF’s CEO Colin Turner commented ‘It was very pleasing to see the activity on all member stands including Vertical Aerospace and Ontic’

WEAF was pleased to host visits from a number of regional primes including Airbus, Honeywell & GKN, enabling a number of introductions.
