Farnborough holds a unique place in British aviation. Its history is closely linked to the development of the aircraft industry as the site of a government-owned aircraft factory in the first world war, then as a research establishment and today as the location of the biennial international air show. The Ministry of Defence declared Farnborough surplus to requirements in 1992. It has now received planning permission to develop into a business and executive aviation centre. But despite the changes the Society of British Aerospace Companies, which promotes the air show, has announced its intention of keeping it at Farnborough indefinitely. The show represents a major challenge to NATS controllers who are responsible for co-ordinating all the movements into and out of the airfield as well as the flying display itself.
