Faradair gave a recent lecture to the Bristol branch of the Royal

Aeronautical Society (RAeS) to share the journey of an Aerospace

start-up over the last three years.

From discussing the foundations for starting an aviation company and the commercial aircraft market to the lessons learned and the exciting opportunities, Faradair Managing Director Neil Cloughley gave a frank, honest and open dialogue about the journey and challenges faced by anyone thinking of becoming an aerospace entrepreneur, especially within the UK.

 Some of the issues that R.J. Mitchell encountered then, 80 years ago,    

  we still have now…. how can that be?” – Neil pointed out

   and as R J Mitchell himself proposed ...

"IF anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you don't understand it, take it from me: it's all balls."

[IT] WAS during my involvement with Martin Dewhurst & the Penny On Trust  that it was decided, in honour R.J.Mitchell's achievements, to change the name of his old school to Mitchell High School.

Over 100 people attended the hour long Faradair BEHA lecture and appreciated the extra time given for the Q&A at the end. 
They heard from the heart with regards to the journey, awards won and their meaning to Neil and the team. The rationale for Hybrid aircraft versus pure electric aircraft today was presented, a market leading position the company took back in 2014.
