Tim Peake (above), our first British ESA astronaut to visit space, captivated all of us during his time on the ISS and he will once again be offering inspiration to the next generation at FIA's Futures Day on Friday 15th July.

Tim will also be making public appearances that day as part of FAB Friday, which is when the FIA opens the doors to aviation enthusiasts.

On Saturday, the public will also be able to see him as he returns to Farnborough to take part in FIA's stage show Airshow Live, where as well as being interviewed he will be launching the flying display.
