Paul Bennet Airshows Livestream Experience
That's right; we are putting on an airshow to save you from boredom. Unfortunately, right now you can't come to us... but we can bring the airshow to you.
Visit https://live.paulbennetairshows.com.au for more details and to grab your Livestream PASS.
Why we are Live Streaming an Airshow?
You may be thinking "how & why are you doing this during the COVID-19 Pandemic?" Well, it's sensible questions and here's our answer...
Great care and planning is going into the filming/streaming of this event. There will be no general public at the recording location, and only an extremely small team of pilots and crew will be present.
All guidlines and rules put forward by local and state government will be adhered to including social distancing and hygiene practices. Our pilots and crews well being along with not contributing to the spread of the virus are our two greatest concerns. Ample facilities and training will be provided to our entire team to ensure we operated in the safest way possible.
With a huge number of airshows across the world cancelled, we pondered on how can we keep the spirit of aviation thriving. We also know a lot of people are currently self isolating. Hopefully, we can bring some great family entertainment live to their homes without having to step out the door.
This is also a rare opportunity for you to see an airshow from a different perspective with behinds the scenes footage, including pilot interviews, aircraft tours, and what it takes to put on an aerial extravaganza. Plus we have camera's everwhere on the ground in the planes so that you won't miss a moment of the action.
With all the current uncertainty going around, we are hoping the Paul Bennet Airshows Livestream Experience can offer a brief escape for people around the world.

FIA Connect: A Virtual Farnborough International Airshow
This July should have seen global aerospace gathered together for the biennial Farnborough International Airshow: a celebration of all aspects of this highly innovative and economically important industry.
For the team at Farnborough International, a summer without an Airshow was simply inconceivable and so FIA Connect has been launched. Taking place on 20 – 24 July – the same week that the Airshow would have flown – we are creating a series of free-to-attend digital aerospace events.
Our intention is to deliver five days of high quality content, collaboration, thought leadership and industry insight; connecting the global aerospace industry during a time when we can’t meet. Highlights include:
The FINN Sessions – senior industry figures speaking about the topics that matter to industry.
Meet the Buyer - a strategic opportunity, connecting suppliers with buying decision makers at pre-arranged, private and secure virtual meetings.
Farnborough Friday – introducing a young and engaged audience to industry as part of an initiative developed to help address the skills gap. The day will include careers advice, inspirational speakers, downloads and workshops.
FIA Connect is partnering with ADS Group – the UK trade association for Aerospace, Defence and Security – to provide support, guidance and topical sessions of analysis, giving the best of insight and resource to help business keep up to date, informed and connected.
Speaking about the launch of FIA Connect, Gareth Rogers CEO of Farnborough International says: “Cancelling this year’s Farnborough International Airshow remains a source of acute disappointment but the team is working hard to develop a virtual event which brings as many aspects of the show to people as possible.
“We know that the cancellation process has not been straightforward and work on delivering a financial solution to exhibitors continues; however, it is vital that Farnborough International does everything possible to contribute to the recovery of organisations throughout the supply chain who have been hit by the impacts of this pandemic.
“FIA Connect will bring global industry together via an online platform, providing world-class content, insight and business growth opportunities. We are attaching no fee, from Meet the Buyer through to virtual FINN Sessions, this is being offered free of charge. I sincerely hope that we are joined by as many of our exhibitors and visitors as possible this July.”
An exclusive package is under development for 2020 Exhibitors, including networking and promotional opportunities. We also look forward to welcoming our trade visitors and the international aerospace industry.
