FIONA McKAY-72 2 PNAA's Business Development Director Fiona McKay to Attend Farnborough

PNAA's Business Development Director Fiona McKay will join the Washington State delegation to the Farnborough Air Show July 16-22. "I am honored to be attending the Farnborough Airshow on behalf of PNAA and the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Industry," McKay said. "We represent the largest commercial aerospace cluster in the world and will make important connections for our members around the globe."  Washington's delegation includes PNAA and 24 aerospace companies and organizations. 

Farnborough is expected to draw more than 1,500 exhibitors from over 50 countries world-wide.  The airshow takes place every other year in Hampshire, England and is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential customers.  In 2016, 
nearly 75,000 visitors attended the show, which generated $124 billion in orders and commitments.

Over 200 aerospace women and a handful of men packed the event, held in Tukwila WA, to hear leaders from across the industry share their experiences, provide the latest intelligence on what the future holds and share their advice on how we can lift each other up and thrive well into the future.  We received outstanding support from the community in the run up to the event, with sponsorships from the Consulate General of Canada, Seattle, the Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Manufacturing, and UTC Aerospace Systems.  

PNAA’s CEO Melanie Jordan handed over the reins for the event to Fiona McKay, PNAA’s Business Development Director, who enlisted a wide variety of speakers from all levels of business to provide an engaging and relatable experience for all involved.  She collaborated with members of the Women of Washington State in Aerospace (known as ‘WoWSA’) in the planning of the event, ensuring that the content reflected the interests of our community.
