FINN is celebrating its third birthday with more than 600 original videos created and more than 780,000 views.
FINN was launched at the Paris Airshow 2017 as the independent news channel from the organisers of the Farnborough International Airshow. The channel provides a video-led digital hub for the global aviation community.
The channel reports directly from the primary air shows across the globe and throughout the year, featuring a dynamic mixture of video interviews, analysis and opinion from aerospace industry leaders, innovators and journalists.
FINN editor-in-chief Alan Peaford said: “The past three years of FINN have been a whirlwind of activity from the show reports (remember real events?) to covering some of the more obscure component parts of this great industry of ours. Just looking back on some of the videos and stories tell a great story of how fast-moving this business really is.”
FINN won the Innovation in Aerospace Journalism and Publishing award at the 2019 edition of the Aerospace Media Awards, picking up the accolade on the channel’s second anniversary.
The channel’s event video wrap – Day 5 of the Paris Airshow 2019 – has been shortlisted for the Aerospace Media Awards. The video has been shortlisted for the Best Digital Submission sponsored by Collins Aerospace.
FINN now has 50,000 subscribers and the weekly newsletter has had 8.5 million views over the three years the channel has been live.
The all time top three most viewed videos over the three years on FINN are:
Take a look at Dubai Airport’s new face-scanning security tunnel
PAC Kamra’s Super Mushshak trainer takes off worldwide
Take a tour of the Gulfstream G500
FINN editor-in-chief Alan Peaford’s pick of his favourite videos:
Alan said his favourite videos were made at Farnborough itself, including the wrap for Farnborough Airshow 2018 which saw an opening day visit from then Prime Minister Theresa May, astronauts Col Al Worden of NASA and Tim Peake of ESA encouraging the younger generation to study STEM subjects, plus Embraer’s E190-E2 Profit Hunter takes a big bite out of the market
Another highlight was ESA astronaut Tim Peake sharing his secrets of life in space
